A DEE Valley restaurant has been short-listed for a major accolade.

Llangollen’s Three Eagles Restaurant has been short-listed for a Go North Wales tourism award.

It is one of the nominees in the ‘best place to eat’ category.

The awards, now in their fourth year, were created to celebrate and recognise excellence in the region’s hospitality and tourism sectors.

They showcase and celebrate the achievements, hard work and dedication of those working in the industry.

Opening in December 2018 following an extensive building renovation, the Three Eagles has seen rapid success throughout 2019 and has already established itself as Trip Advisor’s number one restaurant in Llangollen. Featuring the culinary talents of executive chef Adam Gaunt-Evans, who himself recently featured on BBC1’s Gareth’s Great Welsh Adventure, the venue has been garnering healthy reviews for its quality, seasonal food offerings and popular cocktails.

Director Tracey Owen explained how being shortlisted for this award is testament to the incredibly hard work of the entire Three Eagles team.

“We are all so delighted to be shortlisted for this award and we really hope we can go on to win," she said.

"We are working hard to ensure that this is North Wales’ best place to eat so to be recognised for that, it would be such a great achievement.

“Our chef Adam and his kitchen team have developed a range of exciting menus which guests really seem to love.

"We ensure that excellent service provided to customers is a priority and all of our front of house staff must take credit for the way that they look after our guests.”

Winners of the Go North Wales tourism awards will be announced at Venue Cymru, Llandudno on Thursday, November 14.
