Gareth Ward started out as a pot wash at a busy pub in County Durham at age 16. In order to progress in his career he left the north east after picking Hambleton Hall from The Good Food Guide. He has since spent three years with Sat Bains as sous chef before taking up the role of head chef at Michelin-starred Ynyshir Hall in Wales. He became chef patron together with his partner Amelia Eiriksson, general manager of the restaurant of Ynyshir in January 2017, renaming and repositioning it as Ynyshir Restaurant and Rooms.
Gareth and his team create innovative award-winning food in what is one of the most superb fine dining restaurants in Wales. Specialising only in tasting menus his food is innovative, fresh and light. The main emphasis is about taste and exciting flavours using only the best of Welsh and British produce.
Ynyshir is number 12 in the Good Food Guide’s top UK restaurants 2017-2018 and gained 5 Rosettes (the first ever in Wales) in September 2018.
