Treat yourself to a tasty meal whilst you’re here.
Part of the joys of going on holiday is not having to worry about what you’re going to eat.
Forget about that diet plan that you were sticking to, no need to worry about hunting down those elusive Britannia oven spares for your cooker and you can put all thoughts of meal plans behind you: you’re on holiday so why indulge in meal out at a legendary North Wales restaurant. With acres of fertile farmland and a rich history of keeping livestock, restaurants in North Wales often make the most of the access to local ingredients, so you’ll find that the food you’re eating has usually only travelled a few miles to get to your plate.
Book a table at one of these legendary restaurants before you make the journey to visit us:
Sosban and The Old Butchers
In a region famed for its rustic food, Sosban and The Old Butchers stands above many of its local competitors purely because of its cavalier approach to dining traditions and exclusive nature.
Opened by husband and wife team Stephen and Bethan Stevens, this fine-dining restaurant is only open for three evening services and one lunchtime a week. Since it was awarded a Michelin Star their books have been constantly rammed, so if you want to get a table at this 16-cover marvel you’ll need to be patient!
Where? Menai Bridge, Isle of Anglesey How much? £80 per head for dinner, £40 per head for lunch
A little more affordable but no less in demand, The Bull has been run by owner David for over 30 years and has transformed from a humble pub to a well-established contemporary restaurant and hotel in that time. Championing local produce that is treated with a deft touch, the food that you’ll find at The Bull is a touch above the usual gastro-pub fare, although that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to find a few classics on the menu. You can choose to dine in their causal Coach restaurant or head up to the Loft where you’ll be treated to an award-winning fine dining menu.
Where? Beaumaris, Isle of Anglesey How much? Five courses in the Loft from £55 per person or mains in the Coach start from £12.75
Set within its own luxurious landscaped gardens, after a meal at Bron Eifion you might well be tempted to stay the night in one of their spectacular rooms. Winner of a AA Rosette, this hotel makes for a truly sumptuous stay but is also home to an excellent restaurant. Arrive on a Friday night to make the most of their special Grill night where you can pick up a 10 oz steak (fish and vegetarian options are also available) along with a glass of wine or bottle of beer for as little £14.95. During the week you can make a selection from their ever-changing menu of Welsh and British classics.
Where? Criccieth, Gwynedd How much? 3 courses for £30 during the week for dinner.
The Hand at Llanarmon
Buried in the Ceriog Valley, this Hotel, Spa and Restaurant might be a little hard to find but the excellent food served for breakfast, lunch and dinner is definitely worth the journey. Chef Grant Mulholland was awarded two AA Rosettes signifying the ‘culinary excellence’ that he has worked to achieve at The Hand and you only have to sample a taste of his cooking to appreciate the care that has gone into producing and preparing it.
Where? Ceiriog Valley, Llangollen How much? Pub classics from £14.50.
