Sosban Restaurant

The Pumphouse, North Dock, LLANELLI, SA15 2LF

2 rosettes

The contemporary British restaurant scene is all about offbeat, talking-point locations, and in Sosban, Llanelli has a beauty. A majestic paean to late-Victorian engineering, the building once supplied hydraulic power to the town's docklands, and after a long interregnum in which it was put to various light-industrial uses, it has re-emerged triumphantly today as a fantastic modern brasserie venue. If you can see its 90-foot tower on the horizon, you're heading in the right direction. With an outdoor terrace for light evenings, and plenty of room to breathe amid the stolid stone walls inside, it's an inspired setting indeed for informal, but carefully conceived, on-trend dishes such as Monmouth ham with celeriac remoulade, shellfish gratin, or poached pear and Perl Las salad, for starters, followed by the likes of sea bass with gnocchi in garlic cream, pork belly in madeira with braised cabbage and mash, or rich cheese soufflé with chive beurre blanc. A modern brasserie isn't complete without crowd-pleasing puddings, so get set for tarte Tatin with vanilla ice cream, mixed berry cheesecake, or sumptuous gâteau opéra.
