Award-winning Art Deco Restaurant
"This award-winning art deco restaurant has a great reputation for its ambitious and innovative fare."
The Hotel Portmeirion was opened by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis on the 2nd of April 1926. In 1930 he added the curvilinear dining room, describing it, he wrote;
In 2005 the Dining Room and Bar were re-designed by Sir Terence Conran in an art deco style. The Dining Room has majestic breath taking views over the Dwyryd Estuary. The tableware is designed by Sophie Conran for Portmeirion. An oil painting which hangs proudly overseeing the restaurant is a late 1940's portrait of Jim Wylie (Portmeirion's first Hotel Manager, in post from the opening of the hotel until the mid 1950's), sitting in the Hotel Dining room, overlooking the path towards White Horses. This was painted by Edward Wolfe R.A. (1897-1982) Mr Wolfe held residency here at Portmeirion at the time.
Portmeirion's Executive Head Chef Mark Threadgill and his talented team of Hotel Chefs, under the supervision of Head Chef Daniel Griffiths use the finest local ingredients, including some foraged from right here in the village, to create his unique style of Modern-Welsh cuisine while combining traditional French techniques and Japanese flavours. The menu is changed regularly to allow for the chefs to utilise the freshest of seasonal produce.
The Dining Room has two AA Rosettes which it has retained for a number of years.
