At Birchall Tea we love to support restaurants that have the same commitment to quality and using the finest produce as we do. We were very lucky to spend some time at the wonderful Llangoed Hall, a magnificent country house hotel situated in the Wye Valley in South Wales.

Llangoed Hall produces fabulous food, where the emphasis is on local sourcing of ingredients and freshness of flavor. Head chef Nick Brodie, meticulously sources high quality, seasonal ingredients from a wide variety of artisan producers in the area. They have a policy of sourcing everything from within a 10 mile radius of the Hotel. The restaurant is ranked comfortably within the top 50 restaurants in the UK.

We caught up with Nick over a pot of tea to discuss his approach to cooking and the wonderful bounty of food that can be sourced in the Wye valley and its surrounds.
