Blk Sheep ready for regional roll-out

A new all-day restaurant opens in Wrexham on Monday promising to herald “a new generation of British casual dining”. The Blk Sheep Baa and Grill is planned as the first in a group which will expand throughout the North-West region.

Based in an old dairy at Wrexham’s Plassey Holiday Park, Blk Sheep Baa is from One Hundred Knights, the team behind Llangollen’s Tyn Dwr Hall wedding venue and Three Eagles bar and grill.

Adam Gaunt-Evans, the company’s director of restaurants and bars, said: “We’re taking the level of cooking from traditionally high-quality restaurants and applying the efficiency, informality and accessibility of the casual dining sector. Our ethos is all about bringing British traditions to life in a contemporary way and our diners can expect a new era of dishes where nostalgia meets modernity. We want to inspire a new generation of chefs with our food and showcase how great British food can be. From British classics to modern dishes and a big focus on steaks, we’ll be championing local produce from suppliers and artisans right on our doorstep.”

The new operation is sourcing its lamb and beef from father-and-son farmer-butchers Gwyn and Richard Jones, who raise their cattle and sheep nearby on the wonderfully named Rhosllanerchrugog mountain.

One Hundred Knights’ managing director Matt Jones added: “This is the very beginning for the Blk Sheep Baa & Grill brand. This new venture marks our ambition to become a leading casual dining operator, with a robust, recognisable brand and a proven business model of scalability, set for rapid expansion within the North West over the next five years.”
