“Menai Bridge - LL59 5EY - 01248 716714 With sister restaurants in both Cricceth and Llandudno, these guys are taking North Wales by storm! Their unique Anglesey venue overlooks the Straits – and all three have gorgeous seaside themed décor. Their ethos is to celebrate the local produce, character & natural beauty of the area – and they do so to perfection! Specialising in homemade pizzas - as well as seafood and locally sourced meat – this place has fabulous sea-views, sells its own products (including sauces, luxury hampers, clothing & Welsh slate ‘boards’ etc) - and has lots of ‘foodie’ events going on throughout the year – including bread, baking & pizza making workshops, wine, gin & whisky nights – as well as food & film evenings – so check their website for details! Open from lunch until late every day of the week – but out of season it’s safer to ring ahead! Booking is advisable during weekends and busy periods. ”

Place to eat
“Fantastic boat trips from Menai bridge along the Menai straight or Holyhead (less often) to Skerries lighthouse. Booking is essential and trips (especially from Holyhead) are dependent on suitable weather. Not for the faint hearted as they really throw the boat around!”

Restaurant
“Menai Bridge - LL59 5DT - 01248 716888 A classic pub serving real food and real ales - with real views and a real fire too! Very traditional in terms of decor and menus. It’s most recent owners have managed to pull this popular pub back up to scratch. With it’s outside decking and conservatory area - with super views of the straits and itsfamous suspension bridge - this place is well worth giving a go! They regularly hold special events - and are more than happy to cater for larger groups. Open daily: 11am – late. Food service times: Monday to Saturday: 12pm - 2.30pm, then 6pm - 9pm/Sunday: 12pm - 4pm, then 6pm - 9pm ”

“Menai Bridge - LL59 5EF - 01248 209952 Using locally sourced ingredients to combine the concept of the Spanish tapas with British flavours & techniques, means this place offers a unique fine-dining experience. The name is taken from the Ren Gills song and album. Usually serving from Mon – Sat: 17.00 – 9.00, and Sundays from 12 – 7pm. With pared-back, minimalist décor – it’s a must whilst in Menai Bridge! ”

Establishment
Bus Station
“The Menai Suspension bridge is the worlds first suspension bridge and the iconic image of the bridge is taken from a lay-by on the Holyhead Road heading in to Menai Bridge. But don't just get out here and take the photo, park at Coed Cyrnol and walk through the woods on to the Belgium Promenade and into the village where you will pass under the bridge. It will give you a totally different perspective. You can also cross the bridge as a foot passenger and you'll get some great views this way too. ”
