Location: Talsarnau (Travel Time from Harlech – 10 mins, 3 miles)

Round off your day of culinary delights at the Maes-y-Neuadd Hotel.  The restaurant is highly acclaimed in all the leading guides, and, most importantly, guests love the food produced by Chef Patron Peter Jackson and his team.   Fresh vegetables are gathered daily from the garden and each day’s menu is focused around seasonal availability. The finest Welsh lamb, fish from Cardigan Bay and the Menai Straits and Welsh farm cheeses are delivered, all as fresh as can be. 

Imagine a meal including sea trout brought in within an hour of being caught, accompanied by tiny new potatoes and mange tout gathered from the garden, followed by strawberries fresh from the cane.   Menus consist of four courses, all carefully balanced to complement each other, and which change daily. The meal ends with a "Grande Finale" consisting of no less than four parts.
