Squaremeal Review of Y Polyn ?

The Mansons run their wonderfully remote and gently idiosyncratic restaurant in the style of a chill-out country inn with scrubbed-up rustic surroundings and a dressed-down outlook (no tablecloths, no obligatory wine pouring, no fancy touches). The kitchen delivers a forthright amalgam of ideas founded on gutsy home cooking: expect big portions, “fantastic tastes” and earthy presentation in dishes ranging from pappardelle with duck ragù, Parmesan and pangritata or roast monkfish with chickpea tagine and salsa verde to crispy pork belly with pear and grape chutney or rump of saltmarsh lamb with confit breast, celeriac purée and onion soubise. After that, crème brûlée, iced honey and ginger parfait or tiramisu knickerbocker glory await. Plenty of native specialties such as Carmarthen air-dried ham are on show, alongside some splendid Welsh farmhouse cheeses. Prices include a big dish of vegetables, water and superb home-baked sourdough bread. “What can we say? Amazing every time”, cheer fans of the place.

Editor's pick I took a visit a lovely little western Welsh treasure called Y Polyn to celebrate a birthday. Situated in the leafy countryside of Carmarthenshire and owned and run by acclaimed ex food critic Simon Wright and his foodie compadres, this dinky gastro-pub gets rustic cooking spot on. We had the sunday lunch menu, and through sampling everyone else's food as well as my own, I am able to share my experiences of a few of the delights on offer. Lets start with the starters (which were washed down with...

This is a composite review as we are regular attenders. As holiday accommodation providers in West wales, it is good to have a reliable gastro-pub/restaurant to recommend to visitors. This may be a family's “big night out” during their holiday and, from our point of view as founts of local knowledge, disappointment is not an option. The atmosphere is very relaxed and informal but the “smartly dressed” would not feel out of place on a special occasion. All age groups seem to mingle effortlessly and...
