TWO of Wrexham’s best-known business owners have announced they are bringing a food stall to the town's new arts hub attraction.

Business owners Sam Regan and Alex Jones, both of whom own bars and restaurants in Wrexham town centre, have confirmed they are to open a new joint venture at Ty Pawb.

It will be based in the food court of the markets, community and arts facility which opens on April 2.

Both have longstanding links with trade in Wrexham, with Alex runs The Bank on Wrexham’s High Street while Sam runs The Lemon Tree on Rhosddu Road.

The new venture at T? Pawb, named Plât Bach – Welsh for Little Plate – will deliver a unique blend of tapas-inspired dishes featuring Welsh produce and twists on classic combinations.

Sam and Alex aim to cement T? Pawb’s position in the heart of Wrexham town centre by delivering a high quality, varied and relaxed dining experience, which will complement the offer and style that the arts, markets and community hub will offer.

Sam Regan said: “I saw great potential in the T? Pawb development from the start, and have kept a close eye on the project. I’m really pleased to be bringing another food offer to Wrexham, and can’t wait to see the community coming together at T? Pawb. Our food offer will include tapas, flatbreads and salads which will be ideal for eating in at the food hall, or taking away.”

Alex Jones added: “It’s been a great project from the start, and definitely a step in the right direction as a key performance and event space for Wrexham. With the knowledge of other similar successful projects in other towns and cities, I’m sure T? Pawb will be a great success.

“Our food stall will deliver a tapas inspired dining experience, which we hope will be well received.”

Councillor Terry Evans, lead member for economic performance and regeneration, said: “This is absolutely fantastic news. Both Sam and Alex are well-known faces within Wrexham’s business community, and between them are already responsible for part of Wrexham’s excellent bar and restaurant scene.

“I’m very pleased to hear that they’re coming to T? Pawb and wish Plât Bach the very best of luck.”
