Let us introduce ourselves
Paysanne was opened in 1988 by my parents, Bob & Barbara Ross. Mum was a devotee of Elizabeth David and her love of simple, provincial French cookery. While she presented her dishes to the good people of North Wales, Dad kept their glasses topped up with wines sourced directly from small independent French vineyards. They retired to live in South West France in 2003, from where they still regularly dispatch their latest bottled discoveries.
We have shaken things up a little of late. With our chef of ten years, David Hughes, we have started serving Sunday lunch for the first time. We’re also allowing you the chance to start the weekend early with our new Friday lunch menu.
We have over a quarter of a century’s experience in the art of wining and dining our guests. We hope very much that you’ll join us soon.

Great local restaurant. Well cooked food. Great house wine. Not quite as good as my last visit 3-4 months ago but still very good. Only slight negative was the menu du Marche was the same.

Pleasantly located small restaurant with busy clientele. My wife and I went on a Wednesday evening, it was busy and service was slow but well organised, this is not a fast food place rather a venue to savour good food. We had the set 3 course menu which was extremely good value and quality excellent.

Another fabulous meal at a gem of a restaurant.
There were 7 of us for Sunday lunch and we were all bowled over by the quality of the ingredients and cooking, which was truly sublime! One member of our party ordered another main as he was so impressed with the fish cookery.
A big well done to Cai and his team!!!!!?

The best restaurant for miles around. Cai, the host and owner is a very charming English (Welsh)? man. The cuisine is authentic French and very reasonably priced. Excellent wine list. Locally caught seafood. We suggest you book in advance as this restaurant is well frequented. Terry Kelly (Manchester )

Our first visit to Paysanne, but definitely not the last! We had the steak and lamb which were both cooked to perfection. Cheeseboard is defiantly one to go for as well, if you have any room left! Ambiance, service and food thoroughly recommended.

We went for lunch for my husband's birthday last week. This was the 1st time I had Escargot and although at 1st I was not very keen; they were quite good. My husband had the Hake and it was very Fresh and a big thick piece.I had the Guinea Fowl and it was good.The Muscadet , akthough a bit pricey was good and it complements the meal perfectly. The service was very friendly and prompt. Definitely worth returning .

Yet another fantastic meal enjoyed at Paysanne. We don't get the chance to dine out often but we do we want to have the assurance of a great experience - somewhere to enjoy amazing food at an affordable price in a relaxed atmosphere. We like trying out different dishes and this time I've had the sea bream with an incredible sauce and my hubby thought the tart of the day (blueberry and almond tart) divine!
