Dining

Meet the Chef

Head Chef at The Loft, Andy Tabberner, was named 2015 Junior Chef of Wales, and deservedly so. He is passionate about working with local producers to create monthly menus that are not only unique and innovative, but showcase the very best of what North Wales has to offer. Working extremely closely with an Anglesey fruit and vegetable supplier, Andy makes frequent visits to pick the best quality and most interesting seasonal produce. He’s keen to make vegetarian dishes stand out from other establishments and allow the vegetables to speak for themselves on the plate.

With the Bull Inn superbly located on the south east coast, a stone’s throw away from the Menai Strait, you can expect to find delicious fresh crab and mussels on the inn’s menu – straight from the sea to the kitchen – as well as firm favourites Anglesey lamb and Welsh beef.

Out & About

Just a stone’s throw away, Beaumaris Castle is one of the finest surviving castle’s in Wales and is a must see for any visitor to the area. Its impressive stone walls and turrets date back to the 13th Century when it was first erected on the Welsh coast. It is the perfect location to spend an afternoon meandering around the lush grounds, winding through the small passageways and looking out across the glimmering moat and sprawling mountains that disappear into the distance.

About 25 minutes from the inn is Plas Menai outdoor activity centre – the perfect day out for those looking for an exhilarating water sports adventure. Try your hand at windsurfing, kayaking and much more with regular lessons and courses for all abilities.

Alternatively, those looking for a bit of history won’t be leave disappointed… found at the southern end of the Menai Strait between North Wales and Anglesey is the fortress of Caernarfon Castle, which is sure to impress any visitor with its enormous structure and formidable appearance. One of the most architecturally impressive of all the castles of Wales, dating back to the reign o Edward I, this is a historical site not to be missed.

Classed as a World Heritage site, Conwy Castle is amongst the finest surviving medieval fortifications in Britain and is only a scenic 35 minute drive from The Bull’s Head. From outside the castle walls its distinctive outline appears to almost emerge out of the rocky outcrop it stands on, then once inside the battlements you can see the breath-taking views of sea and mountains.

Only 45 minutes from The Bull’s Head you will find some of Wales’s most stunning coastline with gorgeous coastal towns nestled inbetween the green marshes and golden beaches. With delightful harbours, rugged cliff faces and most importantly welcoming pubs along the way to stop at, the 870 miles of the Wales Coast Path is perfect for walkers of all abilities and a great place to go whatever the time of year.

However, if you crave adrenaline, relish heights and love scrambling then head to Mount Snowdon and take 7 mile ‘Snowdon Horseshoe’ route. Or, if its tranquillity you’re after, try climbing the shapely ridgelines of the ‘Rhyd-Ddu Path’ and descending on the knee-friendly contours of the ‘Snowdon Ranger Path’, which explores 8 miles of the quiet west side of Snowdon. Chances are the only walkers you’ll cross paths with will be at the summit!
