The restaurant at Ynyshir is one of Wales’ most unique and contemporary fine dining destinations and holds four AA rosettes as well as its Michelin Star. The focus is on the complete experience, a journey through our landscape and through our seasons. The restaurant serves alternative British tasting menus using the very best of Welsh and British produce.

Gareth Ward at Ynyshir

The menus showcase the best of Welsh ingredients following the seasons, such as Welsh Wagyu Beef and Anglesey Onions throughout the year, as well as locally foraged sea herbs from the estuary and greens from the woodland floor and Ynyshir’s extensive gardens. During hunting season expect to see wild deer and local duck, grouse and partridge, and in summer Welsh Lamb from the Dyfi valley. Gareth and his team pickle, salt, ferment and preserve fruits, leaves and berries carrying the harvests through the winter and into the spring.
Expect to see dishes such as ‘Not French Onion Soup’, ‘Mackerel Sweet & Sour’ and Gareths take on a Tiramisu all served alongside a carefully selected wine-list whilst overlooking the Cambrian mountains and Ynyshir’s extensive gardens

About Gareth Ward

Gareth began his career at the age 16 having worked in various kitchens in the north east of England. Notable positions include Hambleton Hall, Seaham Hall and two Michelin Star Restaurant Sat Bains – having held the position of Sous Chef. It was in the summer of 2013 that Gareth began his tenure at Ynyshir Hall as head chef that he attained his first Michelin Star in his first full year. The Good Food guide commended Gareth’s talents by awarding ‘Chef to Watch’ and four AA rosettes – Wales’ only establishment to have gained this distinction at the time.
