My wife were staying at the nearby Castle Hotel and we're recommend this restaurant by a member of staff for dinner. By no means plush, the dining areas were quaint but basic, well used tables & chairs. But the saving grace was the food, fantastic liver & onions with real mash potatoes, and the superb posh fish platter, cod, haddock... More

Under new management and well worth visiting this popular local and village inn. The food is excellent and you'll receive a warm welcome and pleasing level of personal service. Parking is easy, plenty of room and you're only five minutes from the centre of medieval Ruthin.
