Gareth Ward


In this episode Justine interviews British Chef Gareth Ward, who is the owner and head chef of the award winning Ynyshir Restaurant & Rooms in Wales. Gareth shares all about how the pandemic created lots of time to make many brilliant new changes, some very good advice for chefs starting in their career paths now, and just how to pronounce Ynshir once and for all…. 

Set in 14 acres of diverse habitat and epic meadows, Ynyshir Restaurant & Rooms is home to some of the worlds most desirable dishes. Built in the 15th Century and formally owned by Queen Victoria, this striking property has changed exponentially since owners Gareth Ward & Amelia Eirikkson injected their ideas and individuality into the business. Gareth was awarded his first Michelin Star in 2013, and gained 4AA Rosettes shortly afterwards, the only place in Wales to hold the accolade, and the first time for Ynyshir Hall. Since then Gareth has put his heart and soul into Ynyshir by creating something truly unique and authentic to him. In 2022 Ynyshir was awarded its second Michelin Star, making it the only restaurant ever in Wales to hold this accolade.
