Carlton Riverside

Irfon Crescent, LLANWRTYD WELLS, LD5 4SP

2 rosettes

Its name is a bit of a giveaway: this small restaurant is beside the River Irfon running through the village. The restaurant's large windows let in plenty of light, while at night, when the beige-patterned curtains are closed, the lighting level is pitched to create an intimate feel in the elegantly decorated room. An amuse-bouche of leek and potato soup can get things off to a resounding start before chicken and pork terrine with plum chutney, or a plate of charcuterie with a textbook version of celeriac remoulade. The kitchen's clearly well versed in the classical repertory, and technical skills are evident too in a main course of Dover sole with salmon mousse, chive beurre blanc and crushed potatoes. While some dishes can appear busy, a steady nerve keeps them balanced and flavours pull together, not apart, as in partridge breast on cabbage and bacon, served with a venison noisette, and game pie in a ramekin under a pastry lid, all accompanied by port and game jus and dauphinoise. Finish with a trio of rhubarb: jelly, fool and crumble.
