Stopped here for lunch on our way to Snowdonia. Beautiful setting in the beer garden, you could see and hear the steam engine go by across the river. I had the posh prawn cocktail which was delicious.

Ate three nights on the trot.Varied menu of excellent home cooked food value way beyond the price. Lovely views of the river Dee from the restaurant with attentive and friendly service. Well worth a detour or even a special journey.

Nice but abit dissapointing as came cold. Chairs very tatty and uncomfortable. The staff work very hard to ensure everything was put right, but they would be better having less on the menu and produce fresh daily produce.As it was packed on Sunday lunch.

Had a wonderful fillet steak here, eating alone is always a bit sad, but the food and service was very good. Brownie with ice cream for dessert was very nice. Thanks for a great meal.
