Busy bistro-style pub with inventive all-day food, nice décor and wide choice of drinks
The good pub guide review
This red-brick house set in beautiful lawned gardens is cleverly laid out inside to create plenty of nice quiet corners with a mix of informal, attractive country furnishings: rugs on bare boards, shelves of books, house plants, a warming fire and plenty of close-hung homely pictures. Formerly judges' quarters for the local court and then a farm, it now dispenses the likes of Phoenix Brunning & Price Original, Facers North Star Porter, Hobsons Best, Muirhouse Pirates Gold, Purple Moose Snowdonia Ale, Timothy Taylors Boltmaker and Weetwood Cheshire Cat on handpump, alongside 20 wines by the glass, around 40 gins and huge selections of rum and malt whisky. The wooden tables on the large front terrace are a restful place to sit, providing sweeping views of the Clwydian Hills. Disabled access. Theatre Clwyd is just over the road.
