    It doesn’t explain why this is a peculiarly Wrexham problem, though. Shrewsbury, where I live now, has a dozen or more lovely restaurants in the town centre,

    It’s simple really, Shrewsbury is a nice town.

    Errr, thanks Andy. The tenner’s in the post yeah?

    Someone earlier said something along the lines of ‘have you seen that spoof beer posted up?’

    Pointed out it is actually proper! Any pointers where to tell people to get a pint?! :)

    Only delivered one cask so far (the rest is going out next week to the usual cask beer suspects) but it will be on in the Royal Oak on the High Street from tonight.

    It doesn’t explain why this is a peculiarly Wrexham problem, though. Shrewsbury, where I live now, has a dozen or more lovely restaurants in the town centre, and even Mold has the Fat Boar which is a great deal classier than anything in Wrexham (with the possible exception of the Lemon Tree, which is after all just on the wrong side of the ring road).

    No one factor will explain why there are no good eating places in Wrexham. As Adam has explained, there will be on-going evaluations of Wrexham by the major Restaurant chains and they will look at everything from the perception of the market place to rates, parking, local income assessments, whether as Sheefag has argued Wrexham is a nice place, and so on. You mention Shrewsbury, which has also managed to retain its Independent shops sector in the side streets, and it is no coincidence that the two things exist as realities.

    Agreed the lack of quality eating venues is disproportionate to the size of the town. Chester on the other hand has a disproportionately large amount as it sucks people in from North Wales and Cheshire.

    Wrexham can support a greater number- I am sure it will come, but will take time.

    That said, Old No 7 is a very nice setting and although has become a bar downstairs still is a small but decent restaurant upstairs. ZaZa in Overton arcade closed a few years back but looks due to reopen as a Portuguese restaurant shortly. Hopefully this will be supported by locals as a single venue doing great business can really encourage others to open.

    My mum did a cracking egg & chips, but sadly the chip pan is now cold – just like her, she passed away.

    Ate at the Lemon Tree yesterday and very nice it was too. Good menu, nice table staff, nice atmosphere and good food.
