Summary

No reports yet on this ambitious 30-seater, which opened in autumn 2021 run by ex-Fat Duck chef Nick Rudge. In May 2022, though, Marina O’Loughlin from The Sunday Times made the trip to this “small room in a curiously gothic building (that was formerly Conwy’s cinema and bingo hall”), finding a “scene of buzz and busyness, full and welcoming” and food that “elicits a great sigh of relief”. Local ingredients make up dishes full of flourishes – not everything works, but she was “mollified by a riot of Welsh cheeses”. She concludes: “there’s no doubt that Rudge can cook. If he concentrated more on showcasing the innate quality of the spectacular Welsh produce he’s using and less on the likes of Great British Menu, he’d be unstoppable”.

Summary

Sous chef at The Fat Duck for seven years, Llandudno-born chef Nick Rudge has embarked on his first solo enterprise with this 30-cover site in Conwy, to open in October 2021. The chef has promised not to turn tables so diners can relax. Initial menus don’t seem at all wild and wacky like the Fat Duck but grounded and thoughtful modern British cuisine.
