Multi award-winning Festival No.6 has today announced the return of its bespoke dining experience, Dinner at Clough’s, for the fourth year running with an incredible line-up of Michelin-starred and ground-breaking chefs.

After three years located on White Horses promenade Dinner at Clough’s moves this year to the auspicious main dining room of Hotel Portmeirion, the most spectacular dining location on site, with stunning views across the estuary of the River Dwyryd.

Previously taking place twice a day at lunch and dinner, this year will see a rolling service each day from 1pm until 9pm. Seating tables of any size, guests will experience an elegant feast in truly stunning surroundings with breathtaking views of the River Dwyryd Estuary.

Hotel Portmeirion’s wonderful dining room was originally built by Portmeirion’s founder, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, in 1931 as a curvilinear extension to his main hotel overlooking the estuary. It’s the perfect place to take time out for a little respite and enjoy the finest food available at any festival in the country this summer.

East London’s hottest restaurant – Som Saa – opens Friday’s culinary extravaganza, serving regional Thai food with uncompromising flavours and promises to be the finest, most innovative Thai feast ever served at a British festival.

Som Saa started life through various Thai food pop-ups, takeovers and street food events before taking up residency at Climpson’s Arch in East London which, after a successful crowd-funding campaign, was shortly followed by the opening of it’s permanent home in Spitalfields Market in April, 2016 attracting rave reviews from the Guardian, The Daily Telegraph and The Times, to name a few.

SOM SAA – FRIDAY (£49 per person):

Snacks and Small Plates

‘Miang chomphu’ – rose apple with Prick Ki Nu chilli, young ginger and a peanut, palm sugar and smoked fish caramel

‘Mu dad deaw’ – Thai pork jerky marinated with whiskey and coriander seed, chili vinegar sauce

Single Plate Dishes

Yum khao thort – fermented pork and red curry rice cake salad, with ginger thai herbs and roasted rice

Main Course (served family style

‘Ngop pla’ – grilled banana leaf parcels of brill, red curry, young coconut and ‘Bai yor’ leaf

‘Sup hang wua’ – Muslim style oxtail soup with Thai cardamom and crispy shallots

‘Yum dtakrai’ – lemongrass pork and poached prawn salad with sour leaves and cashew nuts

‘Jan nahm prik gung hang’ soft cooked eggs with dried prawn and dried chilli relish, pickled morning glory and thai herbs


‘Som chun’ – Kaffir lime, fresh lychees and green mango in an iced ginger syrup

Saturday sees the return of Festival No.6 favourite, resident chef and industry legend Aiden Byrne, who joins us in Portmeirion for his fourth successive year. Former head chef at The Grill, London Dorchester, Aiden is the youngest chef ever to win a Michelin star. Previously mentored by Tom Aitkens at Pied à Terre and developing his style at Michelin-starred establishments such as The Oak Room and Orangery and The Commons Restaurant he now holds the helm at the iconic Manchester House – which currently has a four-month waiting list for a weekend table – as well as at his British grill pub, The Church Green in Lymm.

This year will see Byrne host some of his most renowned dishes from his career. Book a table now to avoid missing out on key times!

Sunday’s finale is created by renowned Michelin-starred chef, Paul Ainsworth.

With his Michelin-starred restaurant in Cornwall fittingly named as ‘Paul Ainsworth at Number 6’, and lauded as “one of the best dining experiences in Britain” by The Independent, his menu is guaranteed to be a festival highlight.

As well as Dinner at Clough’s, Festival No.6 has brought together a selection of the UK’s finest food and drink pop-ups, serving food in the Street Food Village in the main arena.

Festival No.6 is a bespoke banquet of music, arts, culture and gastronomy, taking place over the weekend of the 7-10 September in the magical village of Portmeirion, Wales, home of the cult TV series The Prisoner. With more live artists, DJ’s, renowned chefs, speakers and surprises yet to be revealed the sixth Festival No.6 will undoubtedly be the most impressive to date.

Acts will perform across the entire site, by the whimsical Italianate architecture of the village, the historic town hall, piazza, Bristol Colonnade, beside the picturesque estuary, in the atmospheric woods and the promenade along the River Dwyryd.

Constructed between 1925 and 1975 by maverick architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, Portmeirion is a wonderfully bizarre and elaborate interpretation of a Mediterranean villa, nestled in the stunning mountains and forests of North Wales overlooking the expansive estuarial waters of the Irish Sea.

For a festival dining experience like no other, be seeing you at Dinner at Clough’s.

The The announced as the first headliners for 2018...


Comment on Facebook

We're coming back! Woo hoo. I wanted to make a return visit and The The's announcement tipped the other half into yay yes!

Excellent start to the line up announcements!!! 👌

The lyrics still after 36 years are so apt

Ooooh! Might have to see them 4 times next year then! 😀

Huge headliner... brilliant!!!

Now that’s news

Awesome news

Be seeing you 👍🏼

I love The The, ill definately make it to see a live act next year , wasn’t bothered about seeing any of the acts on 2017! Liz Robinson Greg Thurston

Am I the only person who doesn't know who they are? I was disappointed by the headliners this year but looks like it'll be the same next year too at this rate... Bring back 2016!

I think they should return to The Club in High Street, Crewe. (I cannot remember the name) it is probably closed now. The band played there in the punk era, all the way from London, to a pogoing, spitting, beer throwing audience. The dark haired chap in the band threw his drink back at the crowd and I think words were said. The club owner pulled the gig and I was denied one of the best nights of music. We left having indicated to the band that there were at least 2 people who got it. I have followed them via albums ever since. No less than genius. Never seen them live since. I can recommend the reading of The Pudding Club. Ix

Mike Hyslop - i hate tagging people into statuses, but i'm sure i saw you got tickets for their London show..?

Actually I am surprised that everybody’s favourite rocker from North Wales - Mike Peters (and The Alarm) are never invited........

Franck - here's the festival...

Back of the Net! Will Johnny Marr be joining him?!?

I really think they should come to Australia!

Strange you chose a cover of Hank Williams for the vid over one of The The's own compositions?

Why dont you just get madness??

You going Chris Lyons? i mihht have to call it for my 40th xxx

Angela Roberts...pre register information

David R Steinhauer if they come to the states we’re going no questions asked!!!

Hi. I've tried to register for tickets but your website keeps saying "Please enter a valid email address" - which of course, I have done. Not received any emails. Also - seeing lots of comments about a "Dashboard" which I can't find on your website - presumably this shows options and prices? Interested in coming but I can't find any information to help me plan my booking. If you could advise please? Thanks

at last after 6yrs of trying, madness is headlining on sunday night 😉
