Machine House restaurant in Wrexham - named Wales' Restaurant of the Year at the AA Hospitality Awards 2018 - has closed its doors.
Chef Kevin Lynn had opened the restaurant following stints at Belle Époque in Knutsford and Shrigley Hall in Cheshire.
Announcing the closure on social media Lynn posted: "Wow what can I say apart from thank you, its been a huge pleasure. I've had an amazing journey meeting so many amazing people who have become great friends and almost like family. You guys made this such an enjoyable experience for me, I will never forget this and what we have achieved here."
He added: "Hopefully we will see you again soon."
An AA Inspector had said of Machine House restaurant: "With its sturdy oak beams, bare stone and whitewashed walls, the setting may speak of another era, but the modern British cooking in this intimate restaurant is bang up to date. The kitchen has strong supply lines to outstanding local producers, then dials the flavours up to 11 in lively, sharply executed dishes."
