A COUPLE who have run a successful restaurant since 2018 are to open a new dessert and cocktail bar in Deganwy this summer.

Sonny Walker and wife Monika, who set up Indulge Restaurant six years ago, are hoping to welcome customers to Number 8, at the former site of The Waterfront, next month.

It is planned to be open four days a week, and will not affect business at Indulge, which currently serves customers on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Initially based in Conwy Valley following its 2018 opening, Indulge moved to Llandudno following the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Monika said: “We don’t have an opening date set yet, but it will be before the summer holidays; hopefully the second half of June.

“There have been challenges (in the last few years), but if you have a passion and you love what you’re doing, you can overcome those things.

“Sonny’s an amazing chef, so will be doing the desserts, and I always wanted to have a cocktail bar - making lovely cocktails and recipes really excites me.

“We’ll be doing some savoury stuff, like cheese boards using local cheeses, pickled cockles and mussels, as well as cocktails, spirits, wines, and coffees.”

Monika added that she and Sonny also want to host events such as birthday parties and baby showers at Number 8.
