A popular restaurant with rooms in North Wales has put some of its catering equipment up for sale after taking the sad decision to close for good.
Plas Bodegroes Restaurant with Rooms has been operating for more than 30 years, having first opened in 1986, and is owned by Chris and Gunna Chown.
They now plan to convert the property into a holiday let business, which they hope will be available by the spring.
Mr Chown took to Twitter to reveal that the business has several pieces of commercial catering equipment, including Pacjet and Thermomix units, that it is looking to offload.
The property was home to 10 bedrooms and won multiple accolades over the years including a Michelin Star from 1991 to 2008, Good Food Guide UK restaurant of the year 2003 and Sawdays Hotel of the year in 2015.
Mr Chown’s Twitter post has been met with messages of goodwill by former guests with fond memories of staying at and dining at the property.
Meanwhile, a statement on its website reads: “Plas Bodegroes Restaurant with Rooms has now closed down. We would like to thank all of our staff, and guests from near and far who have enjoyed our hospitality over the years and made Plas Bodegroes such a unique experience.
“We are reverting the property to a private house. Upon completing the work Plas Bodegroes will be available to let as an entire house – watch this space!”
