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

‘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

Dessert

‘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!

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.

London Grammar, First Aid Kit, Catfish, The XX, Arcade Fire, The Milk...and can dream but Mumford and Kate Bush!!! Yep that would do it!!

The Cure/New Order/Manic Street Preachers would be a real treat as headliners. Elsewhere, The Kills, John Cale, Duke Spirit, Christine and The Queens, Laura Marling...You can also rename it Eddie's Festival, if you like...

Someone that most of the audience will have heard of! Have you done a demographic to see the varied age range that come every year? If you did you should put someone on who will appeal to all ages. Try to get someone with credibility and not some old has been like Grace Jones. You have been successful in spotting up and coming talent- like James Bay and the Rag 'n Bone Man- they should have been headliners.

Can we have the flaming lips back in drier weather. Was stood right next to their mini stage ready for Wayne to wander out in his sphere. Was gutted he didn't come out (though understand why).

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Chic, Daft Punk, LCD Sound system. Please invite Greg Wilson again he was amazing oh and Adam Buxton can he come back?

Main stage Muse, madness, killers, Kings of Leon, Florence and the machine, 30 seconds to mars, Charlotte church, that's a few options.. And can you book Daughter again

Mumford and sons, Florence, elbow, arctic monkeys, Ben Howard , Lissie, stereophonics . The cure, depeche mode and arcade fire.

Flaming lips were amazing it'll be very hard to better that night iv seen them 4times and I want more more more xxxx

The charlatans, new order, The Alarm,arcade fire, the specials, paul weller, primal scream, chemical brothers, the cure, depeche mode

Killers!!!! Arcade Fire would be awesome... Kasabian would rock the joint.... anyone that's been rained off over the past couple of years: Chic, Noel Gallagher!!!

I play with the Oakeley Band - we played in the Piazza - I would love to play on the main stage!! Other than that - maybe Stereophonics! 😁😁😁😁

The promoters will be shocked by how MOR a lot of these suggestions in comparison to the acts they have been putting on at Festival no 6

I agree with someone well known, you market yourselves as family friendly but our teenagers didn't know any of your line up this year, we have been the 2 years previously and the lineup was far better. We were all glad we' d had a year off due to last years watery disaster

Different types of music in the woods! Amazing venues but shut too early and all with same beat. Mostly way too heavy way to early. Mix it up a bit more and stay open later. Tangled in Woods last sets on Saturday were great!

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds

Jesus & Mary Chain, Primal Scream (again), The Proclaimers, Alabama 3 and Hold Steady will do me fine thanks

PJ Harvey would be cool. Charlatans latest albums top draw, they would be a fantastic close to the Sunday.

Fri - Tame Impala, Sat - Duran Duran, Sun - Elbow and there's signs of a return coming from the Friendly Fires camp, they'd be awesome at Portmeirion

LCD SS or Arcade Fire - both have been brilliant at Primavera in the last couple of years. John Grant too - he puts on a fantastic show!

I'd stand in the rain without my wellies for any of the below... **Jack Johnson **Whitey Ford/Everlast **Coldplay **James **Moby **Biffy Clyro

Joanna Newsom would work well for the setting too. Richard Dawson. Sufjan Stevens. Some bonkers, colourful types to fit the setting!

The Vaccines, Royal Blood, Biffy Clyro, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys and would always be happy to see Catfish back 😀

Toots and the Maytals; Lisa Stansfield (although maybe headlining a more intimate stage for her); Robert Plant.

Still hoping for elbow and Goldfrapp! Alt j johnny marr again Depeche mode John grant Damien Rice= dream come true!

LCD Soundsystem. I can't understand why no one's suggested them yet 😉
