We didn't stay at Gliffaes but booked dinner there as a result of reading about the Gliffaes restaurant in Anna Colquhoun's excellent book, Eat Slow Britain. The hotel has quite an old fashioned feel, yet the food is modern, adventurous and very delicious. Only surprising thing was the absence of Welsh wines on the wine list as all the rest of the food is locally sourced, and there are some fabulous local vineyards (see Sugarloaf Vineyard for example). It was raining when we were there, but in our dash to the hotel it looked like the gardens would be well worth a tour. I'll definitely aim to go back; I think the Michelin reviewers should take a trip there....
