Glynarthen, nr Cardigan, SA44 6PE [Map]
Another of those beautiful conversions from farm to hotel and restaurant which seem to have become a bit of a feature in Wales as farming adapts. Miles and Jacky Glossop have done a fine job and the eating arrangements have obviously featured highly on their priorities.
The wonderfully flavoured products of the locality are noticeable by their presence, including smoked salmon from the Black Mountains and Pantysgawen goat's cheese, with the emphasis on honest-to-goodness country cooking. Penbontbren is rural Wales at its most compelling.

Llechryd, nr Cardigan, SA43 2QA [Map]
Castell Malgwyn's location in Pembrokeshire alongside the River Teifi is ideal for the many attractions the area offers. The three star Georgian mansion house is situated in glorious parkland surrounded by woods and you could spend time fishing, swimming, walking, or cycling in the countryside. There are beautiful views from the windows across the lawns to the woods. Rabbits play on the grass, buzzards circle overhead and kingfishers and otters can be seen at the river's edge.
The restaurant makes use of fresh local produce to create dishes such as chicken liver pâté with redcurrant and port sauce; ham with melon balls and cottage cheese; River Teifi salmon with a prawn and cream sauce, and Thai spiced chicken breast char-grilled with yoghurt, cucumber and coriander, all accompanied by a selection of fresh vegetables and potatoes.
To finish, pavlova filled with white caramel sauce and surrounded by a chocolate coronet could catch the eye. Fifty wines make up an intelligent list.
The Cambria, Marine Terrace, Aberystwyth, SY23 2AZ [Map]
Tides is a stylish restaurant, in a spectacular situation, overlooking Cardigan Bay with its magnificent sunsets. Their food is all homemade, even including the pasta and ice cream, and is locally sourced whenever possible, while their position means that lobster, crab and fresh fish are regular specialities.
Families are always made welcome, as the atmosphere is thoroughly relaxed; even it appears to be on the posh side. The food at Tides shows much original thought and is very much in the modern mould, witness possible first courses like butternut squash and sage ravioli with watercress salad; citrus cured monkfish tartare with remoulade and caper salad or the thoroughly tempting tempura fried red mullet and spinach and watercress fritter served with tomato jam.
Mains follow in a similar vein with seared scallops and cannelloni of ricotta, pancetta and spinach mousse; seared tuna served with pistachio risotto, carrot crisps and a balsamic glaze or Welsh Black beef fillet cooked three ways - pan fried, Wellington style and steamed with ginger and spring onions.
Desserts can be be simply described as delicious, like iced chocolate parfait with mulled strawberries and candied lemons or apricot bread and butter pudding served with homemade vanilla ice cream.
