Was treated to a pre birthday meal here by my family. I had the fruity chicken Korma, it had tiny baby tomatoes and cashew nuts in it. It was delicious, fresh and hot. Service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. I will defiantly be visiting again and will recommend to my friends

As an Australian on holiday, I was delighted to come across this wonderful pub, tucked away in a picturesque village in the Vale of Clwyd. I loved the concept of a community run pub. Food was fantastic, as was the friendly service. The slow cooked beef pie was one of the tastiest I have ever had and the veg were... More

Sadly we missed dining there as the chef has Wednesday night off, but the community shop a few doors down was well-equiped and had... More

Can't praise enough, stunning rooms,friendly people,just sorry we went on a night when there was no dining. Would be a super base for travelling around Wales. Will return as must try the food if the standards of everything else are anything to go by it will be amazing.

Last Sunday I was invited to a 'birthday' lunch at the Raven. I was really looking forward to it as I've been to this fabulous pub on a number of occasions. It was a party of 19, no mean feat for a chef to accommodate. Well the meal was wonderful, you would not get a better Sunday lunch anywhere. We... More
