Y Polyn is situated just a mile or so from the National Botanic Gardens of Wales and has become a destination in itself. You’ll need to book a couple of weeks in advance to secure a weekend table.
Y Polyn runs a relaxed front of house that complements the dining room with its bare wood tables and chapel chairs – don’t expect too much standing on ceremony, staff dress casually in Y Polyn tee shirts, always aware of one’s needs but never ‘hovering’!
The bar area is inviting with sofas set around a cosy wood-burning stove so diners may sip an aperitif whilst browsing the menu. Y Polyn’s menu reads like poetry and tastes like heaven! With delicious seasonal dishes combining mouth-watering ingredients and an array of sumptuous puddings to delight.
The menu is deceptively simple, although it does include some classic European bistro dishes. The emphasis is on top quality, locally sourced ingredients with a great value selection of wines. Beautiful homemade bread and bottled water are offered at no extra charge.
Y Polyn has received many awards including the AA Restaurant of the Year for Wales 2009-2010 and has two AA Rosettes, an Egon Ronay Star and is featured in The Good Food Guide, The Michelin Pub Guide and Alistair Sawday’s Guide to Pubs. Y Polyn is also a proud member of Wales in Style, an independently selected guide to some of the finest places to stay and eat in Wales.
