A RESTAURANT based on Prestatyn’s High Street has received a TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Award 2023, as it prepares to launch its new menu later this month.

Patagonia Welsh Roots, a steakhouse at 96 High Street, was given the award last week, which is based on the reviews customers post on TripAdvisor’s website.

In total, the restaurant has received 144 TripAdvisor reviews, with 124 rating as “excellent”.

Travellers' Choice winners are among the top 10 per cent of businesses on TripAdvisor.

Patagonia Welsh Roots was opened in mid-2019 by Jamie and Julie Hyslop, and prides itself on using as much Welsh produce as possible.

Julie said: “We’ve constantly been getting good reviews on TripAdvisor, which is brilliant. We’re really proud of that.

“We’re thrilled that customers are still coming; we’re still full pretty much every night, and weekend bookings fill up the week before, so we’re really happy.

“We just enjoy seeing people enjoy themselves, because we’re fully aware that, at the moment, there are multiple reasons why people shouldn’t be going out.”

The restaurant’s new menu will go live from Wednesday, October 18, with plans to also revamp its outdoor 30-person garden area.

Its new menu will focus more on “autumnal produce”, with bookings already being taken for Christmas.

Julie added: “We’ve stopped doing the garden now because we haven’t had the weather for it, so we’re going to try to invest in that so that, next summer, we’ve got a bit more leniency in inclement weather.

“We’ve acquired quite a large sail off a ship, so we’re going to put that up instead! It’s obviously windproof and waterproof, so fingers crossed, we’ll get that up soon.

“We’re just going to spruce the menu up a little bit. We’re doing what we do best, and then adding a couple of items for Christmas.

“We’re going to be using more autumnal produce, including the addition of our steak and ale pie, which we had on last year. We’re going to change the starters up a little bit, as well.

“For Christmas, we’re going to keep our regular menu running, as well as a ‘nod to Christmas’ on the specials board – two starters, mains and puddings which will be Christmas-themed."
