Place came recommended but sometimes places don't live up to their reputations do they? This place does. We ate at a nice restaurant in Chester last weekend and I thought I'd had the best steak ever there, but the one I had last night at 'On the Hill' was as good. Lovely place with a great atmosphere. Attentive staff. Will... More

Have visited many times and lunch this week was superb. Lovely flavours and all meals were perfectly cooked.The 2 or 3 course lunch (we have never managed three) is good value. Usual good service as well. See you soon. The Fisherman's lunch is a great option.

Called in for lunch on Saturday after looking on Tripadvisor for somewhere near me as we were in the area and it's as good as the reviews say! Very busy but the staff were brilliant - really friendly and attentive. There's perfect amount of choice on the menu, the food is superb, you can tell the chef has a passion... More

Found On the Hill by chance whilst on location filming Escape to the Country and what a find! If by any chance we get a house in the area we will definitely be returning to eat there again

We had lunch for six people and enjoyed it very much. The menu was quite varied and the food was excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. We chose to have only two courses each (main + desert) at a very reasonable cost of less than £15 each. The meal was excellent value. We also had a very good red wine.... More

Arriving in Ruthin Wednesday afternoon we explored the pleasant town centre and found this quaint little restaurant which was unfortunately full, so we booked a table for Thursday. On arrival we were taken to a our table and after studying a very comprehensive menu we ordered sea bass and plaice with a tasty bottle of Chardonnay. The meal was excellent... More

I'm a reasonably regular visitor to On the Hill, but feel compelled to write another review because last night's experience was so outstandingly good. The delightful restaurant was packed full on a Thursday evening. As ever, the staff were hugely welcoming. We ate upstairs and it was excellent. Terrine of crab and prawns was followed by a trio of local... More

The service was second... More
