Today we celebrate @nationalhospitalityday, which is being organised by a series of charities to support and recognise all the great hotels, restaurants, pubs, bars and food outlets across the industry, and their hardworking team members, after the most challenging of years.
Thank you to all our wonderful team and our incredible suppliers for all your dedication and passion, and thank you to our lovely guests for your continued support.
Similar to the traditional Dashi, we've replaced the fish elements with dehydrated potato skins and mushroom trimmings. Creating our own version of the delicious stock using ingredients from the kitchen also helps us reduce our food waste.
Honey from Kilgetty - Foraged Sea Buckthorn - Dà Mhile Organic Apple Brandy.
Distilled and aged in a Bordeaux cask in Llandysul, Da Mhile's organic apple brandy has a round, fruitful flavour, while still maintaining an aspect of crisp apple freshness. This works perfectly in our restaurant manager's favourite Coast cocktail, 'Golden.'
As the brandy melts the honey off the spoon, foraged sea buckthorn is added which brings a tart flavour to the mix. A precise amount of sugar syrup is then included to balance the tart. It's then shaken with ice and double-strained into a glass to finish.
You'll usually find the espresso martini created with Tia Maria, or vodka mixed with coffee concentrate. We were introduced to Oracle's coffee liqueur a few months ago, following a chance conversation with owner Ben when he was dining with us.
He shared his passion for cocktail making and told us about his liqueur project, and we knew we had to try it straight away. Oracle, based in Carmarthen, is made from the highest-quality single origin coffee beans, which we now use to create a more authentic and delicious cocktail for our guests.
Our restaurant was fully refurbished during the lockdowns, and we love this view from the balcony across the new dining room. The trees came from the sprawling grounds of Grove of Narberth, our sister hotel, and were carefully hand-painted by our team.
