Former Michelin-starred restaurant Plas Bodegroes to be turned back into a house

Plas Bodegroes, once a Michelin-starred restaurant and hotel led by Chris Chown, is to be turned back into a home.

Planning documents show that the local council has agreed a proposal from Chown to change the site in Gwynedd, Wales, from a "restaurant with rooms back to a dwelling house".

The 18th-century grade-II listed building has operated as a hotel since 1985. It held a Michelin star from 1991-1998 and again from 2001-2008 under the stewardship of Chown and his wife Gunna.

For a time it was Wales' only Michelin-starred restaurant and its only five-star-rated restaurant with a hotel.

In 2015 Plas Bodegroes was listed as a hotel with auction house Christies for £1.5m, but was not bought.

The council has stipulated that the premises must be changed to a residential property within the next five years.
