Some fine and relaxed dining in and around Wrexham

One of our 'hobbies' shall I say, is treating ourselves to a meal in a relaxed restaurant with good food and service.

In North Wales there are many such venues ranging from small pubs to larger establishments.  Here are just a sample of what you can find in and around Wrexham.

The Golden Lion Pub and Restaurant, Chester Road  Rossett. Wrexham. Rossett.
Situated in the very heart of the lovely village of Rossett, just past the old mill with its water wheel,The Golden Lion is managed by  Allan Parrington who combines efficiency, friendliness and flexibility of seating for parties with keeping the wheels turning with his cheerful team.
Some recent additions are new patio furniture in the rear extensive gardens plus a new outdoor eating area at the front amid a profusion of flower tubs and hanging baskets. We know from experience how flexible the team are in re-arranging the interlinking rooms for parties of various sizes. Over the years we have got to know some of the locals and the friendly staff. There is ample parking.
Oh, and did I mention the food? A high standard as always with good wines. Our favourite Sunday Lunch choice.

A cosy fire in winter.

The Beeches, Chester Road, Gresford.
A Whitbread Inn the pub/restaurant is next door the recently extended The Premier Inn. The menu is extensive and the wines good. Staff are friendly and the waiter service is most welcome. We enjoy going her in the week for lunch.

The Lemon Tree Restaurant with Rooms. Rhosddu Road, Wrexham.
In the centre of town within convenient walking distance from the bus station and rail station. We have visited many times over the years under various managements. It is a lovely location with an excellent menu for lunch or dinner - or even just a coffee while you read the paper and meet with friendsafter a shopping session.

The Egerton Arms, Broxton Roundabout, Chester.
About ten miles from Wrexham off the Nantwich Road at the Broxton Rd/ Whitchurch Road junction. An excellent choice with good food, wines, service and friendly staff. All managed by Wayne Barlow.

The Stamford Bridge, Tarvin Road Chester.
Although it is a while since we have been there as it is a little far out for us, I am giving it a mention as our friend from The Golden Lion, Richard,  has recently taken over the management. We will have to pay him a visit. His knowledge of wines is excellent.

Even further out but handy for meeting friends who live a distance away is The Boat House at Parkgate. Managed by Wayne who we first met at The Golden Lion some years ago.

Just a flavour!
