Staff are really friendly and have a nice sense of humour. Food is straightforward and sensibly priced. Cash only. There is a cash point close by in the town centre.

We received a warm welcome as soon as we walked in. Cannot praise the staff high enough. Food was fantastic. Reasonably priced. A must to visit while in Llangollen.

Had a lovely meal here with friends. Service excellent. Food 5* Portion sizes very good. Cannot comment on the sweets as did not have enough room for more food. One course was sufficient. Excellent value for money. Will be back again soon.

Called in as an alternative to the Corn Mill. My chorizo and chicken pasta was awesome, and such a huge bowl full to the brim. I would never make myself so much to eat ! And yes, I couldn’t finish it despite a really good...More
