Myself and my wife stayed at Ruthin castle recently and we were very impressed with the hotel in general. It still has a castle feel to it, but with all of the modern day essentials. We were not too impressed with the restaurant itself. My...More

Proper food! Good choice and everything tasted fresh. Must have an excellent chef! The actual restaurant decor was just ok but if you’re not bothered about that then food and service is great.

Ate twice at the restaurant. The food is excellent though the menu is limited. Choice of three starters, three mains and three desserts. These never change, same menu every night.
