Book A Table

Summer Sunday Lunches on the Terrace

In 2014 we decided to celebrate local food outdoors on our terrace – The Sunday Slow Grill – was born and it proved a sell out and very popular on the four Sundays on which we ran it so we shall repeat it for 2016.
Gliffaes, with its nod to Italianate architecture,  will recreate Tuscany in Uskany by having a big outdoor Sunday lunch just like big Italian family gatherings . A celebration of good food, good company and good wine for all the family.
In the charcoal fired slow cooker (see below) we will have delicious melt-in-the-mouth slow cooked Breconshire pork with caramelised apples or a shoulder of Welsh lamb. Then on the grill we could have venison or lamb skewers as well as a whole side of salmon steamed in its own juices with fennel. All served with fresh local salads sourced from Primrose Organic Farm near Hay with and herb new potatoes. We will not disappoint in the pudding department and we will  have a good selection of local Welsh cheese and with homemade pickles and bread.

Head chef, Karl Cheetham, checks on the slow cooked lamb shoulders.

We are keeping our fingers crossed for some fine weather so that we can set up 2 big tables of 20 places outside on the terrace overlooking the river. The idea is for everybody attending to mingle, chat and enjoy the food and company – all helped along by a good selection of local beer and cider.
There will be guided walk around the Gliffaes trees after lunch at about 3.30pm for anyone interested.

 A happy guest sent me a very nice card after the  Sunday Grill in July 2014:

Dear James
I have never written to a hotel to praise them before! I cannot begin to tell you what an amazing time I had at your ‘Uskany in Tuscany’ or was it ‘Tuscany in Uskany’? It was so good I thought I was in Italy. Fabulous venue, great tree walk, amazing food and lovely staff. I cannot wait to visit again. Jane Berrow
