Fresh and local, that’s how we like our meat at Gliffaes. When we can we like to get a whole carcass and do the butchering ourselves. We can’t manage a cow but lamb, small pigs and roe or fallow deer we can.
It means we hang the meat for the right amount of time and cut it into the portion sizes we want. Karl Cheetham, head chef, will make sure that pretty much every inch of the carcass is used.
In the clip below we can see Carl begining work on a fallow deer from the Forest of Dean
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.
