Feathers Royal Hotel, Alban Square, Aberaeron, SA46 0AQ
We have eaten in the restaurant here before, but have to say this was an exceptional meal. Grilled fish of the day was sea bass, and at £13.95 was really good value. It was melt-in-the-mouth with light lemony touch and beautifully presented. Keeping to the fish theme, salmon and asparagus was also excellent. Generally, salmon is pretty good wherever you go, but this was perfectly cooked, moist but cooked through with a very tasty surface and at £14.95 a great choice.
We felt obliged to try the dessert menu, of course, all at £6.75. The crème brulee was soft and squishy, and sticky toffee pudding with caramel sauce was much lighter in texture than it looked. The house Sauvignon Blanc £16.75 was a good choice with all the courses, which is not always the case with both sweet and fish dishes, so it was an excellent evening out at a small local restaurant in our beautiful harbor town.
