If you’re spending some time in Pembrokeshire, Wales, stop by the Allt yr Afon at Wolfscastle Country Hotel for gourmet cuisine in a romantic countryside setting. The stylish restaurant offers guests a Victorian-style dining room as well as a more informal brasserie where they can enjoy a light and modern vibe provided by accents of green, greys and stone. In sunny weather, diners can head outside to relax under umbrellas with a cocktail in hand.
Allt yr Afon sources fresh produce from local Pembrokeshire farmers and the coast, just nine miles from the hotel. The casual brasserie is open daily for lunch, while the restaurant serves dinner from 6pm. Both boast professional but friendly service alongside exquisite food. The children can come along too with a dedicated menu of butcher sausages with mash and gravy, meatballs, battered fish bites and a choice of desserts including sticky toffee pudding and fruit Pavlova.
Allt yr Afon’s menu is seasonal and changes depending on the Welsh produce that is brought in, but while you’re there, you might come across one of the treats below. Begin with a Passionfruit Martini or the Wolfscastle English Country Garden cocktail mixed with gin, apple juice, elderflower and cucumber. Grab some Wolfcastle prawn crackers for the table with a chilli and red pepper jam before moving onto starters. Then try the seared scallops with cauliflower purée, or a Spanish blood sausage (morcilla and candied pancetta).
When looking at the mains, you may find the herb-crusted rack of lamb served with the Welsh laverbread and leek croquet, spring veggies, minted new potatoes, and finished with a red wine jus. There might also be a fish pie stuffed with seafood of the day in a creamy sauce, dished up onto mashed potato and a sprinkling of parmesan crumb. For dessert, choose a mixed berry Eton mess with Chantilly cream and almond crunch or end on a high note with the hotel’s famous homemade fudge.
