MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

James Sommerin’s eponymous restaurant sits on the esplanade, affording panoramic views over the Severn Estuary, and provides the perfect vantage point when the sun sets over the sea. The room has a contemporary feel courtesy of a striking pale blue banquette, modern artwork and a large window looking into the kitchen; and the laid-back style of the place is refreshing. The à la carte is supplemented on a Friday and Saturday by two surprise tasting menus. Terse descriptions belie the skill that goes into the well-crafted modern dishes, which exhibit a well-judged blend of complementary textures and flavours, and are delivered to the table by the chefs themselves. First-rate Welsh ingredients are to the fore and the bold, flavoursome sauces are a highlight. If you’re planning to stay the night, be sure to book one of the spacious bedrooms facing the estuary.
