Part of the Whitbread family, Table Table restaurants aim to bring great value tasty pub food to an ever increasing eating-out public who like well prepared and genuine food served by friendly staff in relaxing surroundings. If that sounds too much like a dream come true be assured that at Table Table they also walk the talk, and are pleased to have the chance to prove it.
Their well located restaurants are spread across a wide range of decors and styles, and all of them share a determination to provide comfort, warmth and relaxation. Their buffet menus for special occasions are remarkable value.
In keeping with modern trends they provide dishes to nibble or share as guests consider the spread of options on a menu that could be described as British with welcome incursions. So as you share long Italian flatbread, and dough balls and dips, or a sharing platter with an imaginative range of finger food starting with garlic and breaded mushrooms, it's time to think about the relative merits of aromatic duck parcels, a prawn cocktail, breaded Camembert or sticky chicken goujons to name but a few.
Many an innocent dish from the past has been hi-jacked in the best possible sense into becoming what is now called a 'pub classic'. Wiltshire cured ham with eggs is served with chunky chips and beef, mushroom and ale pie, or chicken and chips are all familiar with British tables, be they in the dining room or the kitchen. Now they have been added to by chicken fajitas, a sweet red pepper, crème fraiche and fennel tart, a leg of duck slowly cooked and served with a Bramley apple and cider sauce, or chilli con carne with basmati rice, sour cream and guacamole and nachos. So is the humble burger with six enticing toppings.
The point is they, and others, are all here at Table Table, well prepared with quality ingredients, and presented in a way that makes you hungry even if you thought you weren't.
Getting down to the more serious side of the table keep an eye open for the seafood pie, a delightful assembly of things fishy including crayfish, red snapper, prawns and clams. Many of their steaks are 28 days matured, including a 7oz fillet. All steaks are served with watercress, roasted cherry tomatoes, a flat mushroom and chunky chips. A choice from 4 sauces adds the final touch of enjoyment.
Pastas and salads embrace some well known and loved names, but for sheer enjoyment the hot smoked salmon salad takes some beating - flakes of hot smoked salmon mixed with a house salad and soy and ginger sauce. A real winner.
Snacks aplenty cover hot baguettes with the like of grilled pork loin and Bramley apple sauce, sandwiches filled with Cheddar cheese, or prawns and Marie Rose sauce, and jacket potatoes with such temptations as chilli con carne. Add a bowl of chips for only a little extra.
A well travelled wine list offers helpful advice for the uninitiated and there's an impressive choice of draught and bottled beers and lagers. All in all it would appear that Table Table are more than achieving their aims, providing the opportunity for people to eat out enjoyably, with excellent value for money. Long may they continue to do so.

Eagles Meadow Development, Wrexham, LL13 8DB [Map]
With quality food, friendly staff, quick service and excellent value for money, Nando's is a great place to eat. Don't expect identikit, pre-fab restaurant interiors which are usually a staple of the larger chains; each restaurant is tailored to its local surroundings and customers, offering up a unique restaurant experience to go with the equally unique taste of legendary, Portuguese, Peri-Peri chicken.
Your peri-peri chicken, when the chips are down so to speak, is a fresh A grade chicken that has never seen the inside of a freezer, but having made the supreme sacrifice is butterfly-cut, marinated for 24 hours in a secret brew called - you've guessed - peri-peri, and is then cooked to your choice over an open flame.
There are, of course, many variations on this broad theme, numerous plays on words such as Nando's experi-perience, peri-peri good reasons why you should eat at a Nando's, and all one hopes is that for their sake chicken never goes out of fashion. New Nando's are opening all the time, peri-peri quickly in fact, the spicy bastes become hotter and more daring, and the full platter offers a whole chicken, large chips or spicy rice and Nando's salad or coleslaw.
Since chickens are vegetarian it seems logical you can order veggie or bean burgers and patties, and still feel the heat from the peppers. All in all, Nando's is hotly recommended for those occasions when you have a large following of permanently hungry children, or adults even, to keep happy - the only thing taken really seriously is the quality of those peri-peri good chickens.
Nando's is a place for bright people who love to laugh and love to eat, and is guaranteed to spice up your taste buds. Their fun approach to life means that when you visit Nando's you can fully relax without the airs and graces associated with more starchy dining out.
For the location of your nearest Nando's restaurant and a host of details about menus, parties and drinks, a click on their Website will reveal a Pandora's box of information.
Unit B12, Eagles Meadow Shopping Centre, Wrexham, LL13 8DG [Map]
Pizza Express remains a hugely popular bedrock of casual eating. Its popularity is testimony to the fact that across the country, they have restaurants where you will always be guaranteed a good nosh, with children's tastes being well catered for.
Pizza Express has gone even more Roman, and following the success of that particular example of listening to their public have introduced Romana pizzas, including the scorching Etna and the hearty Siciliana.
These pizzas are now thinner, bigger and crispier, and if that sounds like a marketing line, it is. However, unlike many such lines, this one is true, and their quality is always consistent, though cleverly they have still managed to retain a homemade feel to their pizzas.
As an alternative to pizza, try their pollo pesto - cavatappi pasta with torn chicken breast, mushrooms, red onions and mozzarella in a creamy gruyere, parmesan and pesto sauce and finished with grana padano - or the niçoise salad with mixed leaves, yellowfin tuna, free range egg, green beans, potatoes and tomatoes with olives, anchovies, capers and house dressing.
Many of the big chains have come a long way, and Pizza Express is certainly amongst them. One of the first to be quoted on the Stock Exchange - in 1993 - Pizza Express is not a franchise operation and retains tight control through its own staff.
Their wine list - though short - contains some surprisingly good offerings, especially their intense Australian Chardonnay, and a big, full-bodied Merlot from Cusumano, Sicilia.
Pizza & Pasta
29 Rhosddu Road, Wrexham, LL11 2LP [Map]
It offers a wide range of menus to suit all, from take-out coffees and muffins in the morning, to a wholesome breakfast. Lunch is a selection of favourite pasta dishes, tasty salads and filled ciabttas.
As the sun goes down, the restaurant transforms into a glamorous place to enjoy a fantastic Prosecco cocktail, an ice cold Continental lager or a wonderful authentic Italian meal. The weekends are not to be outdone and an International style brunch with frittata, Italian style omlettes, savoury and sweet crepes and waffles could be helped along with an Illy coffee.

Actually the sign shows two crossed foxes, not surprising really; how could even foxes be cross in such a beautiful site as this, alongside the River Dee, hence a real haven for anglers and for those who just want to chill out surrounded by spectacular scenery and great hospitality.
The Cross Foxes is part of the modestly sized and very effective Brunning and Price Group, operating mainly in North West England with two in the South East, each place with its own very individual persona, but all 14 following the same high standards. As with all their houses the emphasis is on good wholesome food, well-cooked but not complicated, with a decent wine list and mainly local draught ales to keep everyone happy.
On the menu expect to find smoked salmon and wild mushroom roulade, beef and wild mushroom suet pudding with red cabbage, bacon chop and free range eggs with handcut chips or tiger prawn and red mullet jalfrezi with fragrant rice and naan bread.
Amongst the lite bites is the best ploughman's lunch for miles around with a choice of three cheeses, pork pie, apple, Scotch egg, tomato, pickles, chutney and chunky bread, or a 10" Overton sausage baguette with roasted red onions, spicy ketchup and handcut chips.
Puddings include bara brith bread and butter pudding, waffle and vanilla ice cream with chocolate fudge sauce. A well rounded wine list completes the pleasure of this attractive gastropub.
Old Wrexham Road, Gresford, Wrexham, LL12 8TY [Map]
A typical Welsh manor house with lovely views and plenty of historical features. The list of awards reads like a roll of honour, which indeed it is. Pant yr Ochain is clearly a popular destination, particularly with families, and helpings are legendary.
Head Chef Jonathan Barkley is described as a Chef's chef and certainly produces the goods. For a starter the rillettes of salmon and smoked trout, served with warm toast and lemon oil could hardly be bettered, though the spiced chick pea and coriander cakes with a roast pepper salad and coriander yoghurt dressing are in the same class.
10 oz Welsh black rump steak comes with a plum tomato and red onion salad, pesto butter and unashamed fries, but you might be equally tempted by the poached fillet of salmon on a Greek salad with buttered new potatoes. Lighter main courses, such as smoked haddock and salmon fishcakes with a salad made from tomatoes and spring onions, are also listed.
Amongst the various mouth-watering puddings many will want to home in on the morello cherry and frangipan tart with a berry compote.
A483 Ruabon By-Pass, Wrexham, LL14 6YY [Map]
Gulab Ali has been in the hospitality industry for twenty-one years before opening Khazana, a dining venue through which he aims to provide authentic Indian cuisine to the Welsh Borders town of Wrexham. A unique and distinctive décor creates a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere and the seating area is furnished with a huge curved sofa set, well cushioned and comfortable, alongside a low table providing a perfect setting to enjoy a relaxed evening with friends.
At Khazana, innovation in the preparation and presentation of food is notable and prawn salad served with lettuce, melon, cucumbers and beetroot or eggs stuffed with spicy chicken served on a bed of green salad feature on the summer menu. Other popular dishes include shami kebab, spiced minced lamb patties covered with a thin omelette, and fish dupiaza, a medium Bengali dish cooked with fresh tomatoes, chopped onions and coriander. You could choose from a list of puddings and ice creams to conclude your meal.

Rossett Hall Hotel, Chester Road, Rossett, LL12 0DE [Map]
Oscar's Bar and Restaurant makes fine dining room for this imposing town house cum hotel, which caters for large social functions as well as the smaller and more intimate occasions. From amongst the starters the fresh mussels with white wine, lemon and garlic cream and the Chinese spiced belly pork with hoi sin sauce stand out. Their steaks are memorable and clearly a feature of the dining room but I would be tempted by the medallions of fillet steak supported by a shallot and mushroom tartlet, a vegetable parcel and chateau potatoes. A comparatively well-travelled wine list has clearly had some thought given to it and the house wine at £9.95 a bottle, or by the glass, makes for easy drinking.

Ellice Way, Wrexham, LL13 7YH [Map]
QH Hotels' first Ramada franchise opened in Wrexham, offering 85 air-conditioned bedrooms, and for matters of inner comfort the Fusilier Lounge Bar and Zara Restaurant is available to guests and visitors alike.
Typical starters may include crab and crayfish risotto, and warm French bean and chorizo salad, or pan fried langoustines. Fillet of Welsh black beef with trimmings, carries the flag for Wales, as does local rump of Welsh lamb. Other main courses include pan fried red mullet served with basil and lemon linguini, confit of belly pork with crushed new potatoes and seared duck breast with duck leg salad and orange reduction. The range of desserts is a source of great pride to Head Chef and his brigade, with Zara's crème brûlèe and homemade bread and butter pudding leading the list of in-house delights. Yet, despite all the care and inspiration taken over these dishes, a glass of fresh strawberries served simply with pouring cream still tends to outfox the pastry chef's best efforts. There's no justice!
A short but inspiring wine list is designed to catch all tastes, with three house wines by the glass. A selection of New World brings the customary crop of uplifting names - Mill Cellars, named after a great outback surveyor, or Cullinan View Pinotage, offering a further contribution from South Africa's up and coming wine industry, with a good fruit and smoke character.
Ramada at Wrexham is clearly making a real effort to capture the restaurant business in the area and on present form should succeed.
