Find My Dine at Christmas
Well, you won’t win any prizes for picking 2020 as ‘the single year I’d most like to forget, thanks.’ One you’ll be happy to see the back of, for many reasons, we are sure.
So more than ever, Christmas represents some sense of hope, something to look forward to. A time of indulgence, some little respite from 2020. Which for us means good food and drink.
We’ve got you covered. We will be updating this constantly over the next few weeks, as we hear what our Welsh independents are offering this December.
