Just over the bridge that crosses the River Usk lies the impressive Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel, where heritage is combined with comfort. Its terrific reputation for catering for weddings and special celebrations is well established, so I was eager to sample the cuisine served in the restaurant, Clarkes. On entering, we were shown to a relaxing bar and lounge where, over drinks, we leisurely perused the knockout menu. Our table was exquisitely laid with gleaming cutlery and covered in a crisp white linen tablecloth.

Each dish sounded enticing but eventually I settled for the mackerel Scotch egg paired with cucumber and shallot for starters, and a local tournedos Rossini fillet steak for mains. My wife chose the pan-fried halloumi followed by coriander- and chilli-glazed duck breast flavoured with lime and ginger. Desserts are equally indulgent, and our lemon cheesecake topped with caramelised oranges and whisky crème fraîche, and the chocolate cups accompanied by Baileys cream were the stuff of dreams. It came as no surprise that every dish ordered was expertly cooked and presented – my fillet steak ranked as one of the best I’ve eaten. Not only was the food exceptional, the attentive, friendly service was also first class. If you’re treating yourself to a fine dining experience, a visit to this magical restaurant comes up trumps.
