Look’s Deputy Fashion News Editor Hannah Banks-walker escaped to the picturesque Welsh island of Anglesey to discover a hidden foodie paradise set amid some breathtaking scenery
It has to be said: Wales gets a bad rep. hailed as a destination for adventurous, outdoorsy types, it’s not often considered a first choice for a romantic weekend away. But those people can’t have been to anglesey. this island, just off the north coast of Wales, is heart-stoppingly beautiful and offers some of the most delicious food you’ll ever encounter.
sosban & the old Butchers is, on the surface, an unassuming little restaurant that you might walk past without a second thought. It has, however, just been awarded a Michelin star, and for good reason. Run by married couple stephen and Bethan stevens (he’s the chef, she the perfect hostess), it’s intimate and unpretentious. the menu remains a surprise until you arrive and what follows is a spectrum of innovative, mouth-wateringly irresistible courses, each better than the last. You’ll want to book: this place is fast becoming a hot ticket and, considering the Michelin star, is really affordable at £59 per person for around eight courses. Fine dining, spectacular landscapes and cosy pubs with roaring fires? Hello, anglesey.
