Wrexham has an abundance of great, local food & drink.

Our area is undergoing a food & drink renaissance with dynamic chefs thriving with the availability of brilliant local produce and craft ales on our doorstep.

Poke your head into one of our many gastropubs around the County, along with our hotels and restaurants and you'll be amazed by the quality on offer all year round.  

From the award winning Michelin rated Hand at Llanarmon under the stewardship of Head Chef Grant Mulholland, the thriving town centre based Lemon Tree, the Fat Boar (Jamie Jones), The Shippon at the Plassey, The West Arms in Llanarmon (Grant Williams) and the newly opened Three Eagles in Llangollen (head chef Adam Gaunt-Evans) to the lesser known but equally fantastic cafes such as Lot 11 Cafe & Hideout (Hill St), King Street Coffee (Bus Station), Bank Street Social and the new food & drink offer at Ty Pawb (Plat Bach, Just Desserts and Curry on the Go)!

We also have top-notch breweries too - from the worldwide brand Wrexham Lager (served on the Titanic - it went down well!), to micro breweries such as the Big Hand.  We also can't forget the CAMRA award winning Bridge End Inn in Ruabon, a hit with real ale fans from all over the UK all year round or the popular Buck House Hotel in Bangor on Dee with its warm hospitality and draft ales.

Our foodie scene is growing - and on these pages were happy to share with you details of these gastronomic gems throughout the County - just so that you've got every excuse to return over and over again!

Here's a few of the best - all of whom are tourism ambassadors for the area and work to source the freshest local produce!

Offering what we like to call ‘edible elegance’, it is our aim to provide an exquisite culinary experience, which will delight all of the senses, to all who step through our door.

Our menu at Llangollen's newest restaurant / bar - The Three Eagles is kept quite select but changes regularly according to the seasons. Our aim is to make use of the best fresh produce that our region has to offer.  Head Chef Adam very much believes in keeping his dishes simple and letting the quality of the ingredients shine through, we also like to throw in an unusual twist or combination picked up by Adam from his travels. Whilst our menu can be described at eclectic and contemporary, our cuisine is deep rooted in strong classic cooking techniques, concentrating on pure enjoyment and dining pleasure rather than simply following trends.

The Bridge End Inn, Ruabon

IT doesn’t have music or show football and only produces a TV when Wales play rugby – but this family run inn has been named the pub of the year.
