The Rhug Estate covers 12,500 acres in the rugged Dee Valley, championing organic farming and animal welfare with Lord Newborough at the helm. Set aside an hour to enjoy the estate’s play area or free farm walks, or to browse the shop’s 3,000 Welsh, organic and sustainable products. Snowdonia cheeses, Penderyn whisky and Rhug wool duvets are highlights.
The dedication to planet and people can be tasted in every bite, from family-friendly meals in the award-winning café-grill to a burger to go. Laurels are not rested on here: stone-baked pizzas, an ice-cream parlour and an Instavolt charging hub are new additions.
On The Hoof (the classy fast-food hatch) is a cut above, with burgers, dirty fries and breakfast baps on offer; the bison, lamb or vegan burgers really are splendid. The drive-thru blows your average chain out of the water with hot drinks and snacks that can be ordered from the comfort of your car, though you're sure to want to stretch your legs here instead.
