Y Talbot

UK Wales Mid Wales Ceredigion Tregaron

Narrow single-track lanes meander over the moors to Tregaron, a tiny village out on its own in the Cambrian Mountains of mid-Wales – an utterly remote region, famous for its dark skies and off-the-grid wilderness. As such, whether you’ve driven for miles or spent the day hiking, this handsome 400-year-old inn is a sight for sore eyes – inside, as snug as can be, with slate floors, grey stone walls, blackened beams and a fire in the inglenook taking the chill off. When the sun shines, things spill out into the prettily terraced garden. Given the historic look and feel of the Grade II-listed pub, the fresh, contemporary design of its 13 rooms is a surprise. Easy-on-the-eye creams and taupes dominate, with Welsh wool blankets adding pops of colour. Sash windows allow light to stream in, and views are either over the market square or garden. Bathrooms are slick and modern, most with walk-in showers, and tea, coffee and bottled water are provided. The superior and garden suites with sofa beds are big enough for families of four, and there is one ground-floor accessible room. Head chef Dafydd Watkin, who learned the ropes under Marco Pierre White, mans the stove in the 2 AA-rosette restaurant. The menu swings from well-executed pub classics to ingredient-driven dishes along the lines of Mangalitsa pork black pudding Scotch egg with smoked bacon velouté, and confit duck leg with leeks, mash and red wine jus.
