We love sourcing local produce. Freshness is a given at Gliffaes, that’s why we grow a small selection of our own herbs, fruit and wild garlic. Rhubarb has just been taken into the kitchen this week. As the land gives to us, we must give back by way of continued trade with local suppliers – we think Brecon and the surrounding counties offer some of the best ingredients in the country.
As part of our commitment to try and keep all our suppliers local and sustainable, we are proud to say that we only use fish approved by the Marine Stewardship Council. You won’t be surprised to read that our new Spring Menu boasts confit of mackerel, pan seared scallops, cod loin and crab lasagne to name but a few.
Head Chef Karl Cheetham spent a lot of time crafting this new menu. “I am inspired by French, Italian and Asian cultures. I like to experiment with my Modern British style, and when working on this Spring Menu I wanted to bring a touch of local tastes to the forefront and team them with interesting and indulgent touches. It’s always exciting when new seasonal produce begins to come in, and I’ve really enjoyed creating these dishes. I hope our guests and diners enjoy them too.”
The menu also features a host of vegetarian dishes including onion three ways and rhubarb & sage ravioli. In addition, we have confit duck, steak, haunch of venison and assiette of fowl. You can find our current Lunch Menu on our Lunch page and our current Dinner Menu on our Dinner page.
Gliffaes is known locally as one of the finest places to eat in Brecon – isn’t it time you tasted our seasonal sensations for yourself?
We are still unsure as to when we can re-open. I think it will be around the 24th May.
Gliffaes will not be open for outdoor dining only – I am afraid the numbers don’t stack up for us.
Mark Drakeford, The Welsh First Minister has given no definitive date for the opening of indoor hospitality in Wales.
This matter is further confused by the local elections on the 6th May. If Labour is returned to power he tells us that he will be minded to consider the opening of indoor hospitality on the 17th May and I guess he will give us about a week’s notice taking us to the 24th May.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
