Surrounded by 200 acres of parkland and glorious rose gardens, and with views sweeping across the skyline to Snowdonia, Conwy Castle and the Isle of Anglesey, National Trust-owned Bodysgallen Hall is in the Premier League of Welsh country piles. If the grounds and exterior make a fine first impression, the same goes for the interiors of the hotel, which form a genteel world of antiques, oil paintings, dark oak panelling and stone-mullioned windows, yet this is no stuffy country house, thanks to the efforts of charming, on-the-ball staff. Located in the Main Hall, the dining room is rich with grand period character, and John Williams’s cooking is a nice balance of old-school country house grandeur and finely judged modernity, producing starters of crispy hen’s egg with marinated chard, beetroot and turnip from the Bodysgallen Estate, or perhaps grilled mackerel fillet with crab fritter and wasabi. The main event matches slow-cooked loin of lamb with braised lentils, roasted shallots and parsnip purée, while fish dishes could deliver hake in a brioche and herb crust with haricot beans, chorizo, and tomato cream. Dynamic desserts such as a deconstructed lemon and goats’ cheese cheesecake with lemon curd ice cream end the show. The blue-blooded wine list does justice to the tremendous cooking.<
