Featured Gwynedd Restaurants
1. Portmeirion Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Portmeirion
For “location, location and location” it is tough to beat this very “romantic” hotel dining room with “beautiful views over the estuary” at the heart of the famous Mediterranean-style village (and gardens), developed from 1925 on by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. When it comes to the cuisine, some reporters feel “they could do better” or that service “can be a little haphazard”, but on all accounts it’s “definitely one to try”.
2. Plas Bodegroes British, Modern restaurant in Pwllheli Nefyn Rd - LL53
Our feedback is stellar, as it often has been regarding Chris and Gunna Chown’s wonderful retreat – a Grade II listed restaurant-with-rooms outside Pwllheli, which they took back from a management company that they felt had made a poor fist of running it after they retired. We’ve left it un-rated however as change is again afoot – having recently failed to sell the business as a going concern, in October 2018 they announced they are now applying for planning permission to sell it as a residence as they no longer feel it is viable as a restaurant.
3. Sosban And The Old Butchers British, Modern restaurant in Menai Bridge 1 High St, Menai Bridge - LL59
“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”.
4. Dylan's Restaurant Pizza restaurant in Menai Bridge St George's Road - LL59
A “beautiful setting” with “excellent views” of the Menai Straits is the backdrop to a meal at this “busy and reliable” wine-bar style operation: a “friendly” venue with “competent cooking” (burgers, pizzas, salads, plus more ambitious dishes). Also now with spin-offs in Criccieth, and, most recently, Llandudno.
