Work colleagues an I had our annual Xmas Dinner here. As it is my favourite restaurant in Ruthin I was thrilled!! We all chose Xmas dinner from the menu - no starter and no pudding!! The Turkey Dinner was excellent - lovely breast with all the trimmings, and plenty of it. Veg and more potatoes were brought to the table... More

My birthday meal last night and our second visit in 2 months. I had chicken and my fiancé had fish. Every mouthful was bliss, I didn't want it to end. Deserts were what we had previously because we knew we liked them. It is definitely the place to dine for a special occasion.

We were in Ruthin for two nights and ate here on the second due to the reviews. On the Hill is a bit of a Tardis. Its small frontage hides a large ground floor dining area and then another, upstairs. Fortunately, that didn't appear to affect the atmosphere or the service, both of which were excellent. The food, too, was... More

What a lovely cosy restaurant hidden away in the Historic Market Town of Ruthin North Wales. Lots of little quaint rooms spaced out over 3 floors. Pleasant attentive staff, but excellent food. Who ever is in the kitchen and the brigade they certainly know how to cook present and balance flavors. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the... More

Every course was delicious and the wine recommended by the waitress was excellent. We had perfectly cooked scallops and homemade black pudding for our starters followed by a trio of lamb and a trio of pork for our main courses which were both really tasty and well cooked and presented. The service was also excellent. My only slight (very, very... More

We have just enjoyed a very good meal at On the Hill but it was spoiled by being seated on a lone table by the door. We were subjected to an icy blast every time the door opened, which was frequently as it is a busy restaurant. As it was so busy no other table was available. It would be... More

Whenever I go I always have a fantastic meal. Service is good. Small restaurant downstairs, but rooms upstairs to cater for larger parties. There is a daily specials board and the regular menu which has a great choice. You need to book for evening meals and well in advance for weekends. A must try if visiting Ruthin.
