Six of us dined here on a thursday night. Ive never eaten here before but i will definately be coming back. What a gem of a place. Gorgeous, quaint three storey place. Staff are attentive without being in your face and nothing is too much trouble. The food is out of this world and the portion sizes are brilliant (i... More

Not knowing where to eat in Ruthin, the owner of a small boutique recommended we try On the Hill. Luckily we were seated without reservations, which apparently is unusual. The menu was varied, and for our pescetarian tastes, there was a fabulous choice. At lunch time there is a one, two, or three course selection at amazing value. The food... More

Have eaten here on a few occasions and food is consistently excellent. Nice atmosphere, relaxed environment and good staff. You need to book a good while in advance generally as the restaurant is very popular. Highly recommended.

Really not welcoming in any respect. Cold, unfriendly & baffled as to the recommendations I have previously received.

2nd time I've had the pleasure of eating at this establishment. There is a lovely atmosphere. Plenty of laughter from people enjoying themselves. The food is to die for, especially the banana desert. There is always service with a smile and you definitely get value for money. I'm almost reluctant to advise you to go and sample the food here... More

I eat out on a regular basis, so am not easily impressed. On the Hill is a most excellent restaurant for many reasons. Imaginative and varied menu; perfectly cooked and beautifully presented food; friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff; welcoming atmosphere & decor; with prices that are reasonable for the quality. This was our first visit, but will definitely not be... More

The standard of cuisine at On The Hill seems to continually evolve and consequently the standard and presentation is superb. The dishes are all prepared with imagination and thought and the flavours complement each other really well. The portions are just right and with the new changes to the decor and lay out the atmosphere is extremely good for a... More

This is one of the best meals I think I've had eating out. Quality of the food was fantastic, so much variety on the plate and on the menu. Everything on the menu was nice. As a family we tried each other's dishes and they were all fantastic. Prices were good when you compare to some places that charge the... More
