The wedding-cake stucco facade of the Imperial is a landmark on Llandudno's seafront. On a balmy day, alfresco dining on the terrace with a splendid backdrop of the bay is on the cards. The kitchen turns out menus of classically-inflected modern cooking featuring a sound showing of fine Welsh produce: slow-braised ham hock with pear and cider jelly, salt-and-pepper crackling and home-made herb brioche might open the show, while labour-intensive mains run to loin of Welsh lamb wrapped in leek mousse and prosciutto with crispy lamb breast, pea purée, pommes Anna and rosemary jus. Desserts bring on classic crème brûlée with roasted pineapple.
