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.

Paysanne was just wonderful. Great food, perfectly cooked. Loved the fish stew starter and hake main course was amazing. Nicest meal out all year. Wish we lived nearer as we'd be regulars!!

This was our first visit to Paysanne, from the moment we arrived the service was outstanding. We had the fixed price menu which was excellent value and also delicious. There appeared to be no difference in quality, quantity and presentation between our meal and those we could see from the a la carte; sometimes this occurs in restaurants of all types. All in all an excellent evening and we would definitely visit again if in the area.

It has to be one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. The attention to detail was first class. The food was very well cooked & very well presented.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paysane to anyone (in fact I already have)
If you get the chance to dine there you should. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

This is such a lovely place. Highly recommend.

The food is always excellent, the service is warm, informed and helpful.

The size of the restaurant is just right.

I can't praise it enough. It is a favourite to come to when I'm visiting family.

Long may it continue and prosper!

Arrived slightly early, no problem. The maitre de called us by name and gave us a choice of table. The food was first class and not too overfacing. This is the second time we have been here and the standard was consistent.

A small, family run French restaurant. We pre-ordered lobster thermador which was cooked to perfection and served with potatoes dauphinois and a good selection of other veg. Good selection of desserts and wine. Also endless supply of good coffee which is so rare in this country. A very pleasant evening.

Excellent food ,very tasty rustic french food ,we arrived early but was shown to our table immediately,we quickly ordered our drinks which we had the house red,very nice it was too.We had 3 courses which were all excellent,we discovered that our veg had not been served,so at the end of the meal upon asking for the bill,the waiter gave us the deserts free of charge which was a nice gesture,even though without the veg,we were both stuffed.Nice atmosphere we got the feeling lots of people were repeat diners which is always a good sign,overall excellent would definitely book again if we were in the area.

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!!!!!?
