Upmarket Burger Bar set to open in Mold

Upmarket burger bar coming to Mold… and more planned for North Wales


Bosses say they want to open several more after Burger Shed 18 starts trading next mont


The owners of a new gourmet burger restaurant in Mold have said they already plan to set up even more in North Wales.

Burger Shed 18 is set to open on Wrexham Street on Tuesday, February 13, if all goes to plan.

The burger bar – which already has a sister restaurant in Chester – is the brainchild of entrepreneurs Ian Wade and John Roberts, who is from Ruthin.

Mr Wade, 46, said that they had targeted Mold because it was an up-and-coming area but appeared to be too small for the bigger gourmet burger bar chains to be interested in.

He said: “Mold already has the Fat Boar, that tapas place and a Costa Coffee, and those guys really do their homework on places.

“But it doesn’t have something like this. The area has been overlooked by the It’s too small to be on the radar for Bryon and the like.”

The licensed restaurant which is aimed at the younger market 18 – 30 market, has taken inspiration from London eateries Honest Burgers and Patty and Bun.

It will serve burgers, which will start from around £6, hotdogs and chicken wings. He said the place, which will have an “quirky industrial up-cycle” interior, will be licensed to sell booze.

Mr Wade, whose career in the hospitality industry began in the 1980s setting up raves, said they hoped to expand over the next few months.

He said: “The idea is to roll them out so that we get about five or six restaurants within a 40 minute drive of Chester.

“That way it’s accessible enough for us to keep an eye on them.

“It will only have 40 or 50 covers and will be predominately sit down but we do a lot of takeaway as well.

“We use Deliveroo, which has only just come to Chester and we do a lot of that around there.

“But it hasn’t come to North Wales yet, although I expect it will soon as they are looking to expand.

“The timing is right, Mold seems to be up-and-coming, there are a lot of first-time buyers coming here. It is easier for young people get on the housing ladder and they like to socialise without having to go too far.”

Mr Wade said that he had been impressed by the quality and enthusiasm of his 14 new recruits, all from the local area.

The place will be open seven days a week opening at 11.30am except on market days of Wednesday and Saturday when it will open at 9am to cash in on the breakfast trade.

Local councillors, who have spent more than a decade securing the town’s reputation as a foodie hub, are said to have welcomed the move.
