Terry M at The Celtic Manor Resort

Coldra Woods, NEWPORT, NP18 1HQ

3 rosettes

The slick Celtic Manor Resort has a class act in its midst in the shape of the Terry M restaurant, a fine-dining venue which aims high and hits the spot. It all takes place in an elegant space with a contemporary gloss - think white walls, shimmering modern chandeliers, swanky leather seats and tables dressed in their best whites. It's the kind of space that instils confidence, which is backed up by bang-on formal service and the kitchen's culinary output. The man in charge of the kitchen here since 2008 is Tim McDougall (yes, that's Tim, not Terry) and he continues to deliver refined dishes which show respect for classical ways and plenty of contemporary va-va-voom. Welsh ingredients figure large on menus that run to full-on tasting version and an excellent value express lunch. It kicks off with an amuse-bouche such as a creamy celeriac soup and excellent bread before a starter such as pressed duck liver with Medjool date compôte and toasted brioche, or white asparagus with a quail's egg and soused mushrooms. Main-course West Country free-range duck comes with hachis parmentier (rather like a posh shepherd's pie) and a sauce rich with Welsh ale, or there might be tenderloin and rump of woodland pork partnered with black pudding and home-cured choucroute. A pre-dessert like honey ice cream with raspberry sauce is next up, before the real deal such as rhubarb soufflé with goats' cheese ice cream and honeyed oats, or chocolate bavarois with blood orange salad and grapefruit mousse. The excellent wine list includes a good selection by the glass and carafe. There are other dining options on site, including Rafters and Le Patio, but Terry M is the star of the show.
