Food & drink


It’s official – Wales is one of the top three gastro-tourism destinations in the world. And here in the green heart of Wales, our clean mountain air, unpolluted streams and lush countryside produce food that’s as good as it gets anywhere.


Food in Mid Wales has muddy footprints, not carbon footprints. So the fruit and veg at our farmers markets is so fresh it still has the morning dew on it. You can taste the hill herbs in our succulent lamb and our Welsh mountain mutton.


That’s why our chefs, even the ones with Michelin stars, like to keep it simple. They let the food speak for itself. We should all raise a glass to that. Because the beer, cider, wine and whisky are local too.

    Machynlleth Comedy Festival
