We visited the Blue Bell Inn whilst on holiday in the area and staying in a cottage nearby. What a great pub! Extremely friendly and welcoming hosts who have turned this into a fantastic local which now doubles as a post office at the bar! Doesn't serve food but does offer a good range of beers, ciders, Wrexham lager and... More

Recently had a short break staying in Halkyn, we spotted the Blue Bell Inn on the Web before going away and decided we would pay a visit. The real ale on offer was excellent with four choices which changed on a regular basis, they also offered 'real cider' again with a good selection. The atmosphere was generally welcoming and the...

Steve and Ness celebrate 10 years at this fantastic pub on the 6th of april. In this time they have had 893 Real Ales and 199 Ciders, which is some statistic. This is our second visit and we can't wait to return. The cocktail of good entertainment, real fires, quality beer and ciders and a warm welcome is beguiling. The... More

Selection of real ales and organised events for walkers and general tourists. A cheery and warm welcome from 'Mine Host' who is a mine of information about the local area and Halkyn Moiuntain in particular.

The landlord has gone to great pains to offer his guests a wide selection of (mostly local) real ales and ciders. Very limited food offering but they do nice pies.

I went at around 6.00 p.m. on a Thursday so had a Wrights pie, and took some home. Landlord and landlady were very friendly, helpful and informative. Bill was also friendly. I checked out the St Asaph Catherdral/City question when I went home and it was granted city status in March 2012 as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations so... More

Been there quite a few times with friends, family and on my own. Warm welcome everytime. Real pub. Great beers & ciders. Loads of activities put on by the staff from walks, welsh classes, pub quizzes and support of local charities. An absolute pleasure to visit to witness the management taking pride and delight in offering a fabulous community resource.
