A country house has enhanced its reputation by being listed in the top 100 UK restaurants.

Llangoed Hall

Llangoed Hall at Lyswen, near Builth Wells has been listed in Harden's Best UK Restaurants before, and has again made the grade for 2018.

It is listed at 49 and is one of only five Welsh restaurants included in the country’s most comprehensive restaurant guide available in bookshops.

Another Welsh restaurant listed is Gareth Ward at Ynyshir, Eglwys Fach, near Machynlleth, at 15

Harden’s 27th annual poll of diners surveyed 8,500 participants who contributed 50,000 reviews, which form the basis for the inclusions and ratings in the guide

Llangoed Hall head chef Nick Brodie was also delighted with the Harden’s listing.

“When you see the other top restaurants you are listed with, it’s a great boost of morale for everyone in the kitchen,” he said.

“It’s a good gauge and shows that we are going in the right direction.

"During the year, we have changed a lot in the style of our food. We have moved away from a tasting menu to an a la carte menu to suit the hotel guests and a special £15 lunch promotion was very successful."
