There are lots of wonderful places to eat on Anglesey (not least at our very own Deck House!), however, sometimes it’s nice to get out and about and experience the other delights of the island.    Here are our pick of the best restaurants in Anglesey, we think you should visit them all and hope that you enjoy every last morsel!

White Eagle

The White Eagle’s reputation for fantastic food and drink stretched far and wide, it even appears in the 2014 Michelin Guide. This fantastic pub, a mere walk away from Silver Bay, was refurbished and extended in 2007. The surroundings are idyllic, it’s dog-friendly and the beer is refreshing. Owner Alex Timpson has succeeded in creating the perfect pub for the family or just for you and that’s just why it’s on our best restaurants in Anglesey list.

Marram Grass

A delightfully quirky restaurant, a renovated potting shed, where all the food is homemade (even the mayo) and the staff are incredibly welcoming, attentive and friendly. The entrance is somewhat hidden to the side of the driveway to a caravan park, but this place is absolutely worth seeking out. The menu is varied and bursting with local produce at brilliant prices. The food is marvellous here, in fact the whole place really is an unexpected joy and we can’t recommend it enough!


Dylan’s Restaurant

This absolute gem sits on waterfront beside the Thomas Telford bridge in Menai Bridge. A beautiful, modern two story building with breathtaking views from every table across the Strait. The food is locally sources and the specialty is pizza (made on the premises using traditional techniques) and seafood that comes directly from the Strait, including the world famous Menai mussels. It is a warm, friendly place to enjoy the finest food with all the family.

Tavern on The Bay

Originally built as a marine cottage in 1924, the tavern has become, over the years, one of the premier dining locations in Anglesey. Its recently had a £700,000 refurbishment and is now an absolute joy to visit. The coastal views over Red Wharf and Benllech Beach are spectacular, the menu is creative and varied and this is a place where you can sit back, truly relax and take in the scenery. Fabulous on every level, giving it a very well deserved place on our best restaurants in Anglesey list.


A 5 star pub and restaurant with rooms if you fancy staying over (and why not when the environment is as lovely as this?) The Seacroft can be found in Treaddur Bay where you can soak up the spring sunshine on the tiered decking after a walk on the coastal path or simply because you fancy a pint and something splendid to eat. The food is wonderful, fresh and local. The prime steaks are sourced from local butchers and aged for 21 days, there’s a pizza oven and the pizzas (including the famous ‘all day breakfast pizza’) are rolled out to order. Lovely stuff!



There is so much to do on our beautiful island, some activities are well known, others less so. In this series of blogs we intend to advise you of the hidden gems that our residents love, all are close enough to visit from your perfect base at Silver Bay Holiday Village.


South Stack Cliffs Reserve

South Stack is a beautiful small island situated just off the north west coast of Anglesey. The historic South Stack Lighthouse adorns the coast and is open to visitors for a tour of the engine room and the exhibition area. You can then climb to the top of the lighthouse and take in the truly spectacular view. The cliffs that line the 400 stone steps down to the footbridge that accesses the lighthouses are a walkers dream. The view is stunning and the air is fresh, you can observe thousands of breeding seabirds including puffins, razorbills and guillemots.


The Harbourfront Bistro at Holyhead

The Harbourfront Bistro is a family run, fully licensed restaurant and bar perched on Newry Beach, where at high tide the sea stretches to reach the underneath of the restaurant deck! Inevitably the view across the sea is wonderful, however it isn’t the only attraction. The food is outstanding! As far as is possible the food is locally sourced, you can enjoy Anglesey rump steak, lamb shank and burgers procured from the local butcher. The team work hard to provide the best possible dining experience and they nail it every time. This is a truly brilliant hidden gem that deserves full recognition for it’s wonderful food, view and staff.


Aberlleiniog Castle

Situated near Penmon in Anglesey Aberlleiniog Castle is a little known ancient monument nestled at the bottom of a woodland nature reserve. Built between 1080 and 1099 by the 1st Earl of Chester it is its history is rich and varied; Norman overlords, Welsh Princes and Viking raiders have all paid visits for different reasons! See for yourself the location of a great siege in 1094 where 124 Norman defenders died in battle. The castle is surrounded by natural beauty is free to visit and is open all year round. This secret castle fully deserves a mention as a ‘hidden gem’.


Silver Bay Beach

Silver Bay Beach is a hidden gem to the general public, but is the jewel of the Silver Bay Holiday Village crown and freely open to our residents. The golden sand stretches quietly along the coast, leaving everyone who steps upon it with a feeling of freedom and relaxation. It boasts a Green Coast Award and is recommended officially by the Marine Conservation Society. The sea itself is perfect for swimming, fishing, sailing and surfing, even in the winter months our residents can be seen taking a ‘refreshing’ dip! All of this natural beauty is on our doorstep, and we couldn’t be more proud of our private slice of heaven.


Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens

These ‘hidden’ gardens are an open secret amongst the good people of Anglesey. Situated close to the Menai Bridge, this restoration project has introduced a spectacular transformation and the gardens have been restored to their former glory. Covering 10 acres there is plenty to see and enjoy, there are three gardens to enjoy including a secret valley garden with a river and three waterfalls. There is an upper woodland garden with stone outcrops and lastly, an unusual walled garden with curved walls and a pool. The traditional tea room is there for you to enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake, whilst you sit back and let your eyes feast upon your beautiful surroundings.
