Restaurant Tommy Heaney at The Great House
The Great House is a Grade II listed luxury hotel that exudes sophistication yet maintains a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant, which has held the title of Hotel Restaurant of the Year for Wales for the last two years, is headed up by Great British Menu finalist Tommy Heaney. Whether arriving from the seaside town of Porthcawl, Cardiff’s bustling streets, or further afield, once you step inside you’re ensconsed in the warmth of this friendly establishment. Flagstone floors, oak beams, mullioned windows and stone archways blend with modern facilities to ensure charm is found in abundance.
The calming interior of Restaurant Tommy Heaney lets the modern Welsh cooking do the talking and offers a relaxed backdrop for enjoying the exquisite food served. Glance at the menu to see carefully concocted dishes that make the most of seasonal ingredients and local produce – think Welsh lamb paired with ratatouille, goat’s curd and leeks, and free-range pork accompanied by chard, sweetcorn, burnt apple and celeriac. Choose from the à la carte menu, set lunch menu, tasting menu, or enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea in the charming lounge or in the beautiful landscaped gardens. Just as much attention is paid to the drinks list, which you can browse in the newly refurbished bar – local ales, a new wine list and bold gins await. Lengthen your visit and retire to one of the bedrooms – no two rooms are the same.
