Excellent food, great setting.

Like - the food, setting right on the canal, always good service even when we visit with our baby, not too expensive. Dislike - short opening times, place is usually fairly quiet which is a real shame. Tip - as its a bit out of the way, phone first to check its open.

Nicely located on the Llangollen Canal with moorings out the front for us canal travellers. A place full of character and charm. Excellent service, good meals and snacks. We have been here on numerous occasions, and it has never let us down.

A very nice Inn, near to the canal, we have had several meals here, and have never been disappointed. It is nicely located, and makes a pleasant change to come here for a nice meal and drink.

We were passing on a narrowboat contemplating a tuna mayo sandwich for lunch and we spotted the Jack Mytton. It is very cosy inside, extremely welcoming for customers and their dogs. A variety of Real Ales were served and the two I tried (no vigorous drink driving laws on the canal!) were spot on. We both had the beef in... More

This is a very old quaint pub serving food with a friendly local atmosphere. The menu is traditional english food difficult to find anything light but good choice and well cooked.

We stopped at 'Mad Jacks' after slaving away on the Llangollen Canal from Ellesmere heading towards Chirk. Telephoned ahead to check open & booked a table - very friendly and efficient staff served us the best plate(s) of whitebait ever! This was a generous starter & followed by pub grub style Cajun Chicken,etc. Good food for hungry sailors, sluiced down... More
