Ultracomida - Narberth Pembrokeshire

more to follow....

The Glyn Arms & Farm Shop Hawarden Flintshire

One of the 4 J's visited here towards the end of 2014 and highly recommended it!

The Rooftop Restaurant at the RSC Stratford upon Avon

Monday 22nd December 2014

One of the 4 J's dined alone before going to see a performance at The Swan Theatre. Both the food and service were excellent and there was a nice 'buzzy' atmosphere which made dining alone comfortable. The starter of smoked salmon and main of butternut squash risotto was chosen along with a glass of house red.

The Cowshed Ice cream parlour & Bistro

Wednesday 10th December 2014

Three of the 4 J's plus guest visited The Cowshed on a cold December lunchtime.
We were welcomed by a lovely log burner but sadly prime spot was already taken so we were unable to sit by it.
We all opted for the same lunch which was a very tasty homemade macaroni cheese with sausage.
We were also given a few delicious tasters of the ice cream which were yummy!

We would recommend and return....

The Plough @ Rhosmaen nr Llandeilo

Three of the 'J's visited The Plough @ Rhosmaen on Thursday 18th September on a gorgeous sunny day.

The Plough is situated in a lovely location, being on the main road but with lovely views across the fields.
The interior has a modern decor with lots of space for people to sit and enjoy a drink and/or a meal.

These are the three  main courses we chose....

Homemade lasagne
Pan fried chicken stuffed with mushroom duxcell & veg
Pan seared lambs liver with bubble and squeak and veg 
All the group thoroughly enjoyed their meal. No desserts were ordered as after a shopping trip into Llandeilo the obligatory pilgrimage to Wrights Food Emporium for tea, cake and food shopping was made.

Food with the 4J's - two lunch at Coast Restaurant, Coppet Hall, Saundersfoot

It was a lovely sunny day when we decided to make our first visit to this restaurant. Newly opened by Neil & Zoe from The Grove in Molleston nr Narberth and headed up by chef Will Holland.

We decided to order two non alcoholic cocktails and to sit on the terrace and decide what we would order for lunch. We were a little surprised there was no separate lunch menu as they offer one at The Grove. 
We visited here quite early into it's initial opening and there were a few things not finished surrounding the restaurant but this didn't effect our enjoyment. The food we chose was fishfingers & chips and John Dory filets for main course with a side order of greens (£4!) For dessert we had pear with panna cotta & blood orange sorbet baked alaska followed by two coffees. We felt there could have been a drop more coffee in the cups or have been offered the option of cafetieres?? (as one of us doesn't take milk in our coffee)
We had an unfortunate encounter with a guy who may possibly have been a manager but we believe/hope he has since left.
The bill including tip for lunch was £74 for the two of us so not cheap. One of us has already returned for cocktails & nibbles with family members and we watch with interest whether a lunch menu appears...maybe late Autumn??

January 2014 Y Polyn, Capel Dewi, Carmarthen

Only three J's made it on our first outing of 2014....
Great value Credit Crunch Lunch which changes each week and even though one of the J's disliked rice pudding she could choose an alternative from the main menu ..sticky toffee pudding.

We thought it was fabulous, real food, well put together, very tasty and would go back every week if it was on our doorstep.

Also with being in the area we couldn't resist an afternoon cuppa en route home at
to stock up on some goodies and get more info about their exciting move up the road....our next trip out will be there watch this space.....
