Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Carmarthenshire Restaurants Awarded Best Sundays Lunches in the UK


Carmarthenshire is the place to be for Sunday lunch according to one of the UK’s largest newspapers.

The Guardian has named Wright’s Food Emprorium in Llanarthney and Llansteffan’s Inn at the Sticks in its top 50 of eateries in Britain serving up the best weekend meal.

The county food providers were two of only three Welsh businesses singled out by the leading newspaper’s food and drink experts.

It comes after figures recently revealed the value of tourism in Carmarthenshire has increased again and is now worth a staggering £370million to the local economy.

Carmarthenshire County Council received its annual figures from STEAM – the Scarborough Tourism Economic Activity Monitor – which provides an official trend map of tourism throughout the UK and gives a clear picture of the money being spent locally by visitors.

Figures showed that the value of tourism, the impact it has on the local economy, went up by 2.7 per cent in 2016 compared to the previous year.

The council’s executive board member for leisure, culture and tourism, Cllr Peter Hughes Griffiths said:

“This is wonderful news and fantastic coverage on a national stage. It is the icing on the cake following the recent tourism figures. It’s appreciated even more when out of only three eateries in Wales Carmarthenshire is the location for two of them. We really are holding our own in a hugely competitive and diverse tourism market, which shows that we are offering something very special to our residents and visitors.”
