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.
Make it a long weekend and stay with us on Sunday night so you can have a nice long lunch, a stroll or maybe a nap before a light supper of soup and cheese. More details here.
A happy guest sent me a very nice card after the Sunday Grill in July 2014:
Dear JamesI 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
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.
