High Street Feeder

8 High Street, LL13 8HP, Wrexham

Ever since I covered the opening of this place back in June and had a glance at the menu, I was determined to try the food here. Finally, I had the chance to head down to Wrexham city centre and give it a go.

I’ll state the obvious – the High Street Feeder is located on the High Street in Wrexham and unless you had prior knowledge of the place, you’d probably be forgiven for not being aware of the great food options available at this hidden gem.

One thing I will say about The Feeder is that there really is something for everyone. The menu, though not overly expansive, will please most people with its range of burgers, pasta, salads, sandwiches, and paninis; whilst also offering a breakfast menu served between 8.30am and 11.30am with the option available for choices to be made vegan.

Owner, Ashraf, is a friendly host and makes it clear that he will cater to whatever your dietary need may be. 

When I arrived, I was greeted with a smile as long as the High Street by Ashraf as he showed me to my table at the small, but cosy venue.

It didn’t take me long to decide what I was going to eat, as being a huge pasta lover, the chicken and bacon topped penne in a rich creamy white wine and garlic sauce (£6.95) was an instant winner for me. Despite being advertised to include mushrooms (which isn’t for me), Ashraf was more than happy for me to go without.

I was eager to try one of the coffees too, so I placed an order for a latte (£2.75) which is also available with a selection of syrups for just an additional 50p.

My coffee arrived soon after and it looked the part. I was truly impressed for the price I paid – and it was really good too! A bowl of packet sugars was already on the table when I arrived which implied that The High Street Feeder is just as happy to act as a local coffee stop, and I can see why.

Then came the main event, and I must say it was incredible. This bowl of pasta topped with spinach, chicken, bacon, and a white wine garlic sauce would hold its own in a fancy Italian restaurant it was that tasty. If I’m being totally honest, I was surprised at just how good it was. For just £6.95, it was amazing – a generous portion size too, which left me pleasantly full.

The fact it was so nice and filling perhaps made up for the fact there weren't any sweet treat/dessert type items on the menu, but I’m willing to look past that as the food truly was outstanding.

I would strongly recommend the High Street Feeder, there is something for everyone. I came away from The Feeder thinking about how good the value was more than anything. For less than £10 I had a coffee which was of the highest quality and a delicious bowl of pasta which was as fresh and tasty as any pasta I’ve had at any Italian eatery.

Though not the biggest space in the world, nor the biggest menu, the hospitality and quality of what I received for the price I paid was fantastic.

I can’t wait to try something new on the menu next time.
