THE town centre of Wrexham certainly boasts a wide selection of cafes and restaurants, and the Crafty Dragon has become a popular destination, both as a social nightspot and for those after a good meal during the day.

My wife and I were both feeling pretty hungry after a busy morning walking around the town, so a hearty meal was in order and the Crafty Dragon definitely did not disappoint.

Customers were a mix of couples, families and football fans watching a pre-season tournament encounter between Liverpool and Leicester City.

As an Everton fan, I kept one eye on the game, rooting for the Foxes while enjoying what turned out to be a great meal.

The staff were friendly and professional, and our meals were served in good time.

We opted for the five dish Saturday Sharer as a starter, choosing nachos, fries, chicken goujons, meatballs and cheesy garlic bread - all of which were delicious.

For a main course, I chose the Brunch Burger, which came with a free soft drink, along with a £2 “go large” option of an extra burger.

The burger already came with chips and was topped with a sausage patty, bacon and a fried egg - so in hindsight I can see why I didn’t quite finish what was a very tasty meal.

That was in no way due to the quality of the meal, which was excellent.

My wife was similarly pleased with a 10oz smothered rump steak with peas, onion rings and a tomato, topped with peppercorn sauce.

Overall, our visit to the Crafty Dragon was a very enjoyable one, and the food is highly recommended.
