About the award

Introduced in 2017, the AA Restaurant with Rooms of the Year award recognises an AA-rated guest accommodation that is also a dining destination.

Ynyshir Restaurant and Rooms, Eglwys Fach, Ceredigion 

Set in beautifully landscaped grounds and surrounded by the RSPB Ynys-hir Nature Reserve, Ynyshir was once owned by Queen Victoria and is surrounded by mountain scenery. Here the bucolic ideal ends, with an experience which blends a highly individual culinary voice and no little attitude. Gareth Ward's team are genuine trailblazers in the UK restaurant scene. The idiosyncratic and impactful Japanese/Nordic fusion heavily features the very best of international produce, along with fire, smoke, disco lights, a dedicated DJ, fantastic wine and cocktails, and, quite often, dancing chefs.

Rooms are modern and take design notes from the public spaces – dark paintwork, moody feel but with a sense of luxury and quality too.
