The Wayfarer


Visitors like the interior of this restaurant. Hostesses and waiters work at height. Here you can try the lobster and shrimp burger, lobster salad and avocado. Steaks choose only red roasts or very red , in this case they are unreal tasty. There are also beautifully decorated dishes.

The Quarry


Beautiful place with flowers and shrubbery. In the centre there's a lovely pond with a fountain in its centre. Wonderful place definitely deserves to be visited . It's also a good place for a quick or long walk and serves for a good picnic place. Near there is also a nice but longer walk next to a canal with a peaceful path that leads over the canal.

The Cross Foxes


Very good local sourced food! Staff are pleasant and polite.There is a lovely beer garden and veranda closely situated by the River Dee, in the summer it's one of the best Gardens to be in, lovely views up the river! Only drawback with it, following to the visitors review that it being so popular and car parking is rather limited.
