A taste of national media success for Rhyl’s 1891 restaurant

Rhyl’s flagship restaurant 1891, which opened in late 2017 to great reviews has been honoured as one of the best seaside eateries in the UK – by a national newspaper.

Journalist Andy Lines from The Times chose his top 30 places to eat by the sea, with 1891 appearing at number 7 in his top restaurants.

The review reads: “Floor to ceiling windows at this contemporary seafront first floor restaurant and bar at Rhyl’s recently restored Pavilion Theatre offer sweeping views along the north Wales coast, from Rhyl’s two-mile golden beach to Llandudno and the Great Orme. Dishes made from produce sourced from within a 30 mile radius include the Foryd: whole plaice with wild mushrooms, toasted seed gremolata and brown butter”.

Leader of Denbighshire, Councillor Hugh Evans OBE, who is also the Lead Member for Regeneration, said: “1891 is one of the flagship developments that is forming part of our waterfront regeneration in Rhyl. Taking pride of place in the newly refurbished Pavilion Theatre, the restaurant has earned a strong reputation locally for providing top quality local produce in contemporary surroundings, with one of the best views.

“We are delighted that the tremendously hard work of the whole team behind 1891 is paying dividends and that it is being recognised by industry journalists as being one of the best in the UK, up there with the likes of Devon and Dorset. We are delighted with this recognition in a national newspaper and we hope more people will experience fine dining at 1891 for themselves”.
