....well, at least of the three restaurants we tried during our visit. We ate in the Bistro, which was sadly lacking in custom in a rainy April Thursday. However, seated near the fire (gas, but cheering) we found the atmosphere, service and menu promising. We shared a slate plate of brasseola to start, with local beer and Merlot for me and my wife respectively. A good start, but there was better to come. My wife's wild mushroom linguine was pronounced excellent, but my duck, with roast potatoes roast parsnip and green beans was beyond excellent. All cooked to perfection, the duck was tender, the new potatoes soft and delicious, the beans perfect al dente and the parsnip it out question the best I have ever tastes, all served with a very tasty and right amount of gravy and well displayed.
I finished with creme brûlée and home made shortbread. A perfect end an enjoyable three days in Hay.
