Whatever I write here will never come close to describing the experience at Sosban. From the welcome and the home made bread, to the excellent wine selection and at ease ambience, Bethan makes you feel like you're in a Michelin starred restaurant in Menai Bridge....More

Amazing lunch. This restaurant ranks with the best of them. Simple layout. Uncluttered. Unpretentious. Doesn't scream fine dining at you. And don't let the menu put you off. Sure there's no choices. You have what they provide subject to any intolerances or allergies you may...More

My husband and I had our second evening at this cosy restaurant. We didn't expect it to meet up to our expectations following our initial visit last year. What a delicious surprise, it surpassed our previous visit. Fine dining indeed. We were brought 10 different...More

Visited for lunch with family. Had five courses plus two amuse Bouches, and a couple of bottles of very reasonably priced white wine. All in around £180, which I reckon is one of the bargains of the decade. Brilliant chef and charming front of house....More

Well what a fabulous meal!!! The food was outstanding. The fusion of flavours were mouth watering, I especially loved the taste and the presentation of the smoked beetroot and raspberries with pistachio nuts. If you love fine dining on a small intimate scale then this...More

Hi I think they are now taking bookings for Jan 2018 and as its a tasting menu, so no choices, when we there 5 of the nine courses were fish or meat.
Very kind and generous friends have booked to take us to Sosban in August, as a foodie I am extremely excited about going. My concern however is that my husband has a couple of fairly severe allergies, nuts, duck eggs & fish ( ok with shell fish products ie: Thai fish sauce). I appreciate this is a tall order but are you able to accommodate him?
