Stephen & Bethan Stevens’s converted butcher’s shop is the “best in North Wales” – (surprise) menus morph daily to take account of supply, so “you get what is on offer – all local and fresh”, and uniformly “terrific”. Top Tip – “booking is a MUST, as it may be months before a table becomes available”.

“Perfection on a plate” – Stephen and Bethan Stevens’s converted old butchers shop on the Isle of Anglesey has won culinary fame (including from the Tyre Men) for its menus created based on availability on any given day: “a fantastic ‘surprise’ using ingredients married together that you wouldn’t always expect but work perfectly. Steve and Bethan work wonderfully together – one of the highlights is to see Steve putting together the dishes on the pass”.

“You don’t know what you are going to get” at this “small” but stylish venue in an old butcher’s, but the leap of faith is “well worth it” given the “really special” results: “every dish is perfectly prepared and follows on extremely well from the one before”. By all accounts “they have deserved their recently awarded Michelin star”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
