2018 Cheshire Life Food and Drink Awards


The winner of the North Wales Dining Excellence Award category announced


Bodnant Welsh Food Centre, Conwy

The Hayloft is the posher eating place at Bodnant Welsh Food Centre, where chef Hefin Roberts uses local ingredients to create seasonal menus which showcase those products just as much as they demonstrate the chef’s skills. While enjoying the Hayloft’s fare, browse the astonishing range in Bodnant’s shop.


Machine House, Rossett

This former machinery repair shop has been turned into a characterful, intimate venue with an eye-catching wall-hanging - a penny farthing bike - and a smattering of mod culture. Chef du patron Kevin Lynn, who hails from Warrington and made his name at Belle Epoque in Knutsford and Shrigley Hall, takes the best ingredients and lets them speak for themselves on the plate.

Signatures Restaurant , Conwy

If your idea of a an eatery on a caravan park is a hut selling burgers and chips, think again. Signatures is on the Aberconwy Resort & Spa - a Rolls-Royce among caravan parks - and the restaurant is similarly shiny and sleek....very much Hale-by-the-Sea. Chef Jimmy Williams whips up the likes of scallops Rockefeller and deconstructed coq au vin from an open kitchen.
