Important News

Unfortunately, my long-standing chef, Rob, of 12 years is leaving soon for a new life. And another chef with two years experience goes too, wanting a shorter commute. We wish them well. But the hospitality world is chronically short of staff, as you may have heard. And I can’t immediately replace them.

It is imperative, that dishes of the same high-quality leave the kitchen, no question. The only answer for us, is to reduce the number of menus. And there is now a bit less choice of dishes.

We still cater for a wide range of tastes, but specific vegetarian menus are not offered, sorry. The tasting menu is still available but you must book that in advance. If vegetarians give us some notice, we’ll prepare dishes specially for them. Also, lunch will only be on Sundays (not Friday/Saturday as before).

Best efforts will be maintained to accommodate food allergies, with notice of course. And I can assure you that the quality of the ingredients will be as high as ever. Our standards will always be maintained, as you would expect.

Susan and I hope you will understand our situation. And note, you might not see so much of Susan. She will be helping me in the kitchen. Nadia will oversee the restaurant service. We welcome her back, after a spell at the Chester Grosvenor, as manager of their starred Michelin restaurant.

Hopefully these menu adaptions will only be for the winter months, and by the spring we will again have a full team in the kitchen, and be back to normal.

Meanwhile,  we assure you of our best attention, at all times.

THE RESTAURANT

sits in rural North Wales, near Chester, Llangollen and Wrexham. We are serious about our cooking, being well-rated in the ‘Good Food Guide’.

OUR ROOMS

offer you the relaxed comforts of a quality hotel, but with an essential family friendliness. We’re not a hotel, but a restaurant-with-rooms… thirteen delightful rooms, looking out over the hills. Bryan cooks your breakfast!

In an atmosphere of comforting refinement… is thoroughbred Welsh produce. … Everything is defined by precision and clarity.

Good Food Guide 2020

Away from the epicurean delights, the ‘sympathetically extended’ Georgian property has ‘tastefully decorated’ guest rooms.

ENJOY A RELAXED SEASONAL BREAK AT TYDDYN LLAN

ANNIVERSARY WINE DINNER

DINNER SUNDAY 14 NOVEMBER

In November Susan and I will have been here for 19 years. Once again, we are holding our Anniversary Dinner, hosted by Igor Andronov, our wine consultant. He has chosen a wide selection of wines from round the World to accompany the dishes.

Over the past 19 years we have many ups and downs. We are proud to have been rated as one of the best UK restaurants, and holding a Michelin star for 10 years. Our wine list has received many awards. And somehow, we survived a pandemic.

We do have rooms available from £190 for bed and breakfast. The wine dinner is £160 per person.

If you cannot make this occasion, Susan and I would love to see you at Tyddyn Llan during our twentieth year.
