In doing so, the team raised almost £4,000 for charity (Crohn’s & Colitis UK).Now, we are busy preparing for a second adventure. This will see the team drive through all the coastal counties of England, Scotland & Wales in just 7 days! The route will see the team leave base camp in Tenbury Wells on July 11th 2015, travel south towards Monmouthshire before undertaking a clockwise tour of the UK mainland coastline which will be 2,158 miles in total - assuming we don’t get lost."
We've only just found out about this mention in Stella Magazine...
"The BlackLion Llanfaethlu, Anglesey (01407 730718) Anglesey produce, including meat from the owners’ farm, plays a starring role at this renovated 18th-century pub. Try the haddock and salmon fishcakes with laverbread aioli (£6.95) before a comforting courgette-and-ratatouille bake with Perl Las blue cheese (£12.95)"
We are very proud to be part of the Great British Cookbook which features 200 chefs from 10 different regions from around the UK, including Rick Stein (OBE), Anna Hanson (MBE), Michael Caines (MBE) and Richard Corrigan.
Our Head Chef, Wayne Roberts' signature dish, braised shoulder of Anglesey lamb with root vegetable rosti, garden greens and a redcurrant and lamb jus, is the recipe we chose to feature in this book, and is also currently on our menu.
The aim of the book is to raise £200,000 for MacMillan Cancer Support and Hospitality Action by Christmas, with all proceeds from the £12 eBook download going directly to the aforementioned charities.

The book is amazing, with fantastic photos of all the dishes including information about some of the small local producers that also feature in it, and would make a great Christmas present for anyone interested in food.
