I've been here on a number of occasions with various people with everybody complimenting the food and the high standards. The lunch time menu is good value for money with plenty of choice. The evening menu is also very good with a great choice of specials. Overall I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for quality food... More

One of the best meals we've ever had. Went here for our wedding anniversary whilst staying at Ruthin Castle. We have highly recommended this restaurant to friends and family and will definitely go back again. Lovely staff attentive staff and warm and pleasant surroundings.

I booked after reading the reviews, it was a last minute booking and they were able to fit us in. We had a very warm welcome, excellent service and even better food, would highly recommend this restaurant and if we were ever back in the area we would be sure to eat there again. Fantastic time had.

Have been here on a number of occasions for birthdays and retirement meals and have always had a superb meal. Strangely, my husband and I have always been here in a large group of people, this week it was a group of 24! Food and service is excellent, and testament to this is that every time we have been the... More

This was our first visit to On the Hill, it had been highly recommended by one of our friends. We were advised to make a booking as it is very popular and can get busy. We phoned at short notice to book and where very happy to be offered an early table, as the restaurant was fully booked later in... More

What the other reviewers have said about the restaurant is all true. It is an amazing dining experience: service, presentation of the meals, and taste. This restaurant is truly a treasure of Ruthin.

I was treated to a meal out at this place when leaving my previous job. It was my first visit and I was delighted with the place. As I walked in I saw a fish dish being served at a table and thought how beautiful it looked and that is what I ordered. I didn't even consider the fact that... More

We had read reviews of the restaurant and decided to go there for a meal when we stayed in Ruthin - we were not disappointed. The food and the service were both excellent and we would echo previous reviews and cannot rate this restuarant highly enough. Truly the jewel in Ruthin's crown.

I love this place! The atmosphere is great. The food is excellent with a good choice. The wines are good also, again with a good selection to choose from. I often go with a group of x-colleagues as we all think it's the best place to eat in Ruthin. If they can cope with us they can cope with anyone,... More

We have been to this restaurant before and genuinely all i can say about all of the courses we had and the service was 1st class and it would be very hard to find an establishment that can better this place. Thanks for an enjoyable evening!
