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.  Right now, they all need our support a little more than ever following the loss of income this Spring / Summer because of COVID.

We've listed all of those places that we recommend to eat in the County below - along with a symbol to show if they are participating in the Government's "Eat Out to Help Out" scheme in August 2020 - giving you up to £10 off your meal.

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, The West Arms in Llanarmon (Grant Williams) and the newly opened Three Eagles in Llangollen (head chef Adam Gaunt-Evans) to the 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.

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.

The Fat Boar Wrecsam

The Fat Boar, Wrecsam is a stunning new independent restaurant and bar in the heart of the town.

Our large A La Carte menu uses the finest local Welsh produce to create a range of delectable nibbles, light bites, modern classics and traditional favourites. As firm believers that ‘fresh is best’ our menu changes every month to include the very best seasonal flavours (so there’s always a good excuse to pop in and try something new!).

The West Arms, Llanarmon DC

The love of serving up delicious food and drink is as old as the human race and it’s a love which is at the very heart of what makes our gourmet getaway so special one of the top North Wales restaurants. For our chef Grant Williams, making sure that each and every plate we serve is pretty much perfect is a vocation. To call cooking his passion would be an understatement, just like saying that he loves his kitchen would be putting things mildly.

You might have seen him doing his thing on ITV or the BBC, and you can’t miss him in the Good Food Guide because he makes sure we’re included every year.

The Three Eagles Llangollen

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.
