The Resort luxuriates in 650 acres of the Vale of Glamorgan, but is only 15 minutes' drive from Cardiff. A bright airy room, the Vale Grill, with white walls and well-spaced tables is one dining option, or there's a linen-clad restaurant, La Cucina, as well as a champagne bar. Up-to-date British cooking is the draw in the Grill, moving from a pairing of marbled ham hock and black pudding roulade in mustard from twin dressings of remoulade and vinaigrette, to roast pheasant breast with braised red cabbage and a savoury bread pudding in redcurrant jus. A smooth-textured cheesecake to finish gains depth from mulled wine syrup and cinnamon ice cream.
