ACCLAIMED chef Bryn Williams will launch a restaurant at North Wales’ famous Theatr Clwyd.

The Denbigh-raised chef, who already owns Porth Eirias in Colwyn Bay, is set to open the new Mold restaurant in 2025 following completion of a vital redevelopment project.

Williams also runs Odette’s in Primrose Hill, London, The Cambrian in the stunning Swiss Alps, and The Touring Club in Penarth.

Bryn Williams said: “I am thrilled to be returning home to my native Wales, to work in partnership with Theatr Clwyd, an organisation I have known and loved since being a child growing up locally.

“I can’t wait to share my culinary passion for our distinct and dynamic region and its produce with my community."

Liam Evans-Ford, Theatr Clwyd’s executive director said: “We are deeply excited to be working in partnership with Bryn on our food and drink offer at Theatr Clwyd - including restaurants, bars, and in all our event and retail spaces.

“We always aim to work with people who are world class at what they do, who share our values, and who have strong links to our locality.

“Bryn delivers on all these, and we look forward to working with him to make Theatr Clwyd known as a food and drink destination, as well a venue for world-class culture and communities work.”

Williams and wife Sharleen Spiteri, lead singer of Scottish band Texas, have close ties to the area, with Bryn from nearby Llandyrnog and the couple getting married there.

He has previously said Spiteri would move to his home village “tomorrow” after falling in love with the area during lockdown.
