James Sommerin became the first Penarth Michelin Star restaurant recently beating Cardiff with nil poise, having no restaurants with the highly respected accolade for outstanding culinary expertise themselves.
Situated along the Esplenade in Penarth it makes for outstanding views whilst chowing down on some of the best food in South Wales.
I managed to catch the last few hours of Picnic Penarth last weekend where James Sommerin pitched up a stall selling a few gourmet nibbles but just my luck I left it too late and my fav dishes had all gone by then.
The restaurant discount voucher is valid Tuesday to Sunday for lunch between 12-2.30pm up until 32st August 2017 so you’ll have plenty of time to use it this summer. Sat in window looking out over the Bristol Channel in the summer sun, working your way through 6 expertly crafted courses washed down with a lovely cold glass of Sauv Blanc.

Jols restaurant in Merthyr is churning out some of the best food in the north end of the valleys with head honcho Jamie o’Leary orchestrating things behind the kitchen.
Jamie who was taken under the wings of Stephen Terry at The Hardwick and learnt his trade as sous chef at the Abergavenny fine dinning restaurant.
I’ve been a fan of Jol’s for a few years now after sampling some of the smaller dishes they’ve mustered up at regular streetfood festivals in and around Cardiff such as the ever popular Streetfood Circus.
I’ve not had the chance to test out the regularly changing menu at Merthyr’s best restaurant yet even though it’s been over a year since opening the doors but i’ve kept a close eye on what they’ve been cooking up on social media.
You can also get a 3 course discount voucher for 4 dinners for £85 saving an extra £5 for the group.
In the Jols Restaurant discount voucher you’re entitled to a starter up to £8, main up to £21 and dessert up to £8 with anything over this value having to be supplemented to the restaurant on the evening.
Based on the main High Street in Merthyr it’s easy to get to by train from my hometown of Abercynon but only a little extra with direct line from Pontypridd, Cardiff or change at Abercynon from Aberdare or Mountain Ash. There’s also a car park just behind if someone fancies being Des for the evening.
The menu changes quite regularly but you can see a sample menu below
