Themed evenings at Y Porth 2022…..

Dydd Santes Dwynwen ~ St Dwynwen’s Day 

We are very excited to be hosting the very first of our themed food evenings planned for the year ahead, on Saturday night, January 29th 2022, celebrating Santes Dwynwen, St Dwynwen, the patron Saint of love in Wales.

St Dwynwen (Santes Dwynwen) was a fourth-century Welsh princess who lived in what is now the Brecon Beacons National Park. Dwynwen was rather unlucky in love, so she became a nun. She prayed for true lovers to have better luck than she did.

Welcome to our new Head Chef!
We are excited to welcome Lee Groves to our team, here at the Porth Hotel. He will be taking the role as Head Chef, as we look forward to introducing new dishes and menus, with local, fresh seasonal produce that is readily available in this part of West Wales.
Lee has joined us here in Llandysul, having spent a large part of his chefing career in the South-West Devon area. In which time his work, skill set and passion for cooking led him to win the “best head chef” in the Cornwall life magazine, as well as finishing as a finalist “best chef” in the food magazine.
Lee’s career started off in catering college and working at a local
Pub, cooking pub grub, he then looked to go further afield.
He then applied for the Commis chef at the Walnut tree in Abergavenny, not knowing that it was one of the greatest restaurants near Europe!
Lee stayed at the Walnut tree for 3 years, which he says put him in good stead for his future as a a chef.
He moved onto work in London and Devon, then following a short stay back in Wales, he found himself in the South West, where he then stayed for 20 years.
Here he worked hard, gained himself awards, and really got himself on the culinary map.
Originally from Cwmbran, Lee enjoyed spending time in West Wales, where he has family, and spent the last 3 years prior to the pandemic working in the local area.
We are thrilled to welcome Lee on-board, and can’t wait to ignite the kitchen with new dishes and menus.
Croeso cynnes iawn I Lee yma I Llandysul.
