Ynyshir is a 5 star restaurant with rooms near the Snowdonia National Park, Aberystwyth and Machynlleth. The restaurant at Ynyshir holds 5 AA rosettes - the first and only ever in Wales and has held 1 michelin star since 2014. Chef Patron Gareth Ward serves alternative British tasting menus using the very best of Welsh and British produce. Ynyshir showcases the best of Welsh ingredients following the seasons, such as Welsh Wagyu Beef and Anglesey Onions, locally foraged sea herbs from the estuary and greens from the woodland floor and gardens. During hunting season expect to see wild deer and local duck, grouse and partridge, and in summer Welsh Lamb. Gareth and his team pickle, salt, ferment and preserve fruits, leaves and berries carrying the harvests through the winter and into the spring. Ynyshir is a restaurant experience, finishing with a bed for the evening and breakfast the next morning!
