The Michelin Guide’s Point Of View reads: "Covered windows add a feeling of exclusivity to this discreet, intimate restaurant; once inside, you’ll discover an appealingly rustic room with Welsh slate walls, sheepskin-covered chairs and hand-painted animal tiles pointing back to its butcher’s shop days.

"Stephen Stevens’ well-balanced surprise menu offers boldly flavoured modern dishes with original, personal touches, which demonstrate an innate understanding of cooking techniques and flavour combinations.

"You’ll find a wealth of ingredients from North Wales; the portion sizes and pacing are spot on; and you’ll feel eager anticipation for each dish to arrive."

Those who have visited the restaurant also hold it in high regard with Sosban & The Old Butchers boasting a five star rating on Tripadvisor from 566 reviews.

The Anglesey restaurant has been described as a "triumph", "taste experience" and the "best restaurant in the UK" by visitors.

One guest on Tripadvisor, who travelled from Norway to North Wales just for the experience, said: "Fantastic and different restaurant that definitely deserves the Michelin star.

"To see one chef and one waiter prepare and serve four tables was a fun experience. A set menu were served and all courses tasted magnificent.

"With alternative rock in the background the atmosphere was truly special during the meal."
