Always wonderful!

Fantastic food always! You need to book in advance as word gets round how lovely the food is. There are lots of choices especially the fish dishes! Imogen & Rowen have made this THE place to have a special meal in Ruthin.

We've been for two meals, one midday and one evening and both were excellent. Particularly noteworthy for the fish dishes and the puddings. The building has lots of character and is situated in the heart of the town. Service is efficient and prices are reasonable. I found the restaurant a bit hot and stuffy in the evening, so be prepared... More

Went to this place after seeing it highly recommended on many sites. It didn't disappoint. You get bread and olives when you sit down, bread was fresh and very tasty. I had the black pudding and crispy fried poached egg to start and it was one if the nicest starters I've ever had. I had the pork as a main... More

Lovely food, amazing service. I had a lovely creamy tomato soup followed by a vegetarian trio. My partner had the black pudding which he said was the best he's ever tasted, followed by scallops and beef medallions. Service was brilliant, meals came out quick and piping hot. Didn't want for anything, glass never empty. Would highly recommend this place. A... More

I have eaten here on four occasions and every meal ordered by me and my co-diners has been excellent! The atmosphere, especially upstairs, is warm and welcoming, and the staff are very friendly, helpful and polite. It is so good it can be difficult to book a table, so prior booking is highly recommended and well worth the effort. You... More

We were staying in Llangwm and the owners of the cottage recommended this restaurant. We were lucky they could squeeze us in after they'd had a cancellation. The food was phenomenal and the service was the best! Very professional but laid back and friendly. I have considered driving from where I live in Cheshire just to eat here again, that... More

Visted on a Wednesday evening as a group of two couples - we had a reservation and were seated upstairs. As we sat I mentioned that I had forgotten my glasses and the host brought a tub of glasses that had been left behind, so I could borrow a pair to read the menu. As I read the menu my... More
