68 Commercial Road, Machen, Caerphilly, CF83 8PG
The name alone arouses interest in this stylish restaurant and bar within the small village of Machen, halfway between Newport and Caerphilly. For over 100 years the Fwrrwm Ishta, roughly translated as 'seating place', has stood its ground and today boasts quality food at affordable prices. The pub's extensive wine list, efficient service and excellent food add a touch of class, yet it remains true to its roots, successfully teaming modernity with tradition - bare stone walls blend with contemporary artwork and lighting.

Choosing from the à la carte menu, we began with butternut squash served with marinated Puy lentils and goat's cheese, and a comforting homemade vegetable soup. To follow, I chose lamb served with caramelised carrots and parsnips, fondant potato and café au lait sauce. My partner chose the 10oz sirloin steak with grilled vegetables and chips.

A bar menu is available as well as a two or three-course set menu for early diners. To ensure a variety of dishes, the à la carte menu is changed every season. Private parties can be held in a separate function room, which holds up to 40 guests, and in the warmer months a large outdoor brasserie-style decked area can be used for customers to enjoy food cooked to order
