Strain forces Chown to sell Welsh outlet

The difficulties involved in running two restaurants more than 100 miles apart have caused Christopher Chown to place Plas Bodegroes, the only Michelin-starred restaurant in Wales, on the market.

Mr Chown, who bought the Hole in the Wall in Bath last year, said he had also achieved all the goals he had set himself when he bought Plas Bodegroes in 1986.

He vigorously denied rumours that the business was losing money, pointing to last year's healthy £79,000 profit.

He also dismissed suggestions that running a Michelin-starred restaurant in a remote location had been a problem, adding that the star had greatly helped his business.
