Outstanding food. The best food in North Wales if not further. Far superior food than the nearest Michelin restaurants. Waitrose Food Guide has unfairly marked low at 4 for the cooking. Should be a couple of marks higher. Service was delightful. Found chairs a bit uncomfortable but I do have a back problem.

Excellent food and wine. We will be going again soon as it's on our doorstep; and since discovering Sosban we no longer need to travel to Manchester or Chester for wonderful food.

Surely worthy of a Michelin star in the very near future - exceptional cooking. Brilliantly cooked, exciting food.

We had excellent and unusual food, obviously prepared with considerable care, and served with style and panache.

Lovely food, owner staff very friendly will go again soon most likely in the spring. We hope to take some friends when they come to visit Anglesey.

Although there were elements of the set menu that I enjoyed, the lamb dish was undercooked with no question as to how we might like the meat prepared. I found this rather arrogant and quite irritating. While I can accept that the chef may have his own views as to how lamb should be served surely as a paying customer... More

This is a short review. Because words can't accurately describe how beautiful, imaginative, innovative and inspired this dining concept is. You must go there. It is a culinary experience you will never ever forget, Sublime!

The welcome is warm. The attention to detail is breathtaking. The food exceeds Michelin Guide standards. It's only 5 min from my house. What more do I want?

With my wife and I being massive foodies and dining at many Michelin/Rosette restaurants when we booked our trip to Wales naturally this first thing we done was book a restaurant. Sosban and the Old Butchers came as a recommendation from a friend who had visited a few years back. We booked the table months in advance knowing we would... More

We only just managed to get a booking 5 weeks in advance and we now know why. It was well worth it. The food was excellent; well presented and such a variety of flavours, and the service was great too. Biggest disappointment is that it's not closer to home, otherwise we'd be back sooner.
