Once more we thoroughly enjoyed the unique dining experience and the incredibly tasty food. I love the non-stuffy, relaxed atmosphere they have here, they put you at ease and make you feel very welcome. 10/10 as usual. Diolch yn fawr!

Everything about our evening here was simply perfect - from the decor to the front of house Bethan who welcomed us so warmly to the amazingly delicious and interesting menu. We are still telling people about the food and how the restaurant was not at all pretentious as some can be and such good value too. We will definitely return... More

We had high expectations of "Sospan" and these were definitely met, even exceeded. Michelin star restaurants can often feel stuffy overbearing and pretentious, not so at Sospan just fantastic food prepared and served by immensely skilled and talented people with an obvious love for their art....

We visited in February. The food was simply outstanding, from the appetisers through to the desserts, every dish really worked, even the water with the charcoal was a wow!! The food was backed up by friendly, realxed, but informative service, and the atmosphere with the 16 or so seats was just right. A night to remember - no wonder there... More

On Saturday 11th March a group of four enjoyed an amazing array of tastes in the understated but exceptional Sosban. The service was delightful with an excellent balance of care and attention and detailed information for each dish. All food was a feast for the eye presented in a wide range of lovely dish ware but as hoped for and... More

Stunningly informal Michelin starred restaurant. Manage to get a booking 4/12 in advance. Had heard good reports and was not disappointed, the food was stunning , 9-10 dishes of varying size but all intensely flavoured and not a single weak dish. Every course left you wanting more of it , too many to discuss each dish but some stand outs... More

We visited the restaurant again six months after the last visit (and now following the award of a Michelin star) and it was a fabulous experience. The food was excellent, from the Reindeer moss appetiser right through to the rhubarb with licorice. The selection of wines was excellent (we chose the paired wines). Bethan, at the front of house, looked... More

After all the hype we were expecting great things. Unfortunately we had eaten better in the Manchester French which hasn't got a Michelin star!! The service was poor, we were left with empty glasses and without drinks for very long time no periods. The food was presented well yet the moss starter was let down by the dry acrid taste... More
