An old established hotel on the historic London Holyhead route. Visited several times in the last week of August for drinks and quick snacks whilst staying at a local caravan site. There is a “public bar” and a hotel bar open to all, the latter being quieter. Local real ale is served and a range of food from full restaurant... More

I came here with group of ramblers. We "booked" our dinner only on the morning of our walk in the area. The restaurant managed to serve our last minute party of 20 (and other guests) with only one waitress. The food was basic fare done well - supplemented by reasonably priced wine and an array of real ales (Shropshire Brewery).... More

Nowhere else offered food and it had been a long drive so from the outside, looked like a traditional building with character and promoted food options, so it looked as if it'd suit. How wrong! The barman walked in the oppsote direction when we walked in. The waitress took customers to the dining room then went to her pals and... More

We arrived and they had no record of our booking and of the two rooms booked one was incorrect i.e. Double not twin. The other double was so small that you could touch both walls. One room had broken windows and a dirty sock under the bed. Breakfast was horrific - frozen veggie sausage, mouldy bread, sour milk and overly... More

A friendly hotel with nice acceptable rooms given the price point. Bar good and breakfast fine. We had a large dinner for 10 people and we were advised that we needed to place or orders before 7pm which we duly did and then moved into the excellent dining room. Staff were flexible to re arrange the tables for us. What... More

I have previously written two reviews of this establishment, having enjoyed it immensely, being very positive about the place. However, knowing you always get a good quality meal at The Hand Hotel, we called early on a Saturday afternoon. Horror upon horrors, the menu had changed totally and the prices had rocketed. Nothing at all on the menu inspired us... More

All the other pubs around were packed , so we took a chance and stopped at the Hand Hotel. We spotted they had a large garden alongside... More

We were staying in the are and decided to visit the Hand Hotel in Chirk on Tuesday 27th May as it was our wedding anniversary but regret it. The food was average pub food, the portions were small, the service was painfully slow and the prices expensive. All in all we wished that we had not made the effort and... More
