This blog was focusing on the fine dining experience of Denbighshire but be sure to check out the blogs that Kacie has done on the dining scene in North East Wales and also her experience of the Year of the Sea Food Challenge.

Tyddyn Llan, Llandrillo

Wales has 7 Michelin starred restaurants and we are very lucky to have one of them in North East Wales. Tyddyn Llan wouldn’t be what you were thinking a Michelin star restaurant looks like, with it being at the edge of a rural village of Llandrillo. However this only adds to the beauty and serenity of the restaurant and you can see why the Duke of Westminster used it once as a shooting lodge. A warm welcome is waiting for you at Tyddyn Llan and also a cosy atmosphere (perfect for winter nights!). Staying as true to locally sourced food as possible the Michelin starred restaurant makes sure that their food can be traced to Wales so that you can be sure that you have had a true taste of Wales on your visit.
