Terry M at The Celtic Manor Resort

Coldra Woods, NEWPORT, NP18 1HQ

3 rosettes

The epic-scale Celtic Manor Resort has a host of dining options on site, including Rafters and Le Patio, but Terry M is the star of the show. The flagship fine-dining venue is a truly elegant space with a contemporary gloss - pristine white walls, darkwood flooring, slinky gold lighting, shimmering crystal bead chandeliers, and high-backed ivory leather chairs at linen-clad tables. It's the kind of space that promises a memorable experience, and such hopes are borne out by scrupulously professional yet unstuffy service and the kitchen's high-flying culinary output. The man in charge of the kitchen here since 2008 is Tim McDougall (yes, that's Tim, not Terry - the place is named after the resort's owner, Sir Terry Matthews) and he delivers refined dishes which impress with respect for classical ways while delivering lashings of contemporary va-va-voom. Prime Welsh ingredients are given prominence on menus that run to a six-course tasting version, an excellent value express lunch, and three-course outings that might get under way with hand-dived scallops alongside chicken boudin and white beans, or a torchon of duck liver cooked in port and served with a walnut wafer. At main-course stage, die-hards might go for a timeless trio of Welsh beef rib with potato galette and truffle butter jus, or for modernists, perhaps red mullet fillet with rocket and passionfruit sauce and roasted vegetables. It all ends with plenty of oohing and aahing with the arrival of dramatic desserts like chocolate bavarois with blood orange salad and grapefruit mousse, or a perfectly risen plum souffl? with pain d'?pices ice cream. The excellent wine list includes a good selection by the glass and carafe.
