Just sometimes life is as good as this

Only once or twice do you find such a near-perfect restaurant. The welcome was warm the building was cosy, the staff were attentive and the menu was sublime. There were 4 of us and in three nights we must have tried nearly 30 dishes and ALL were excellent. The imagination and attention to detail... read more

From the time we set foot through the door to settling the bill at the end this was a wonderful experience. We could have eaten anything on the menu. The wine list is superb with very reasonable prices. The flavours were packed into every dish. We have booked for the next two nights that we are here. Don't tell too... More

Went for valentines/anniversary lunch. Nice to see a full restaurant on a Friday lunchtime....the only downside was that service was quite slow. Would certainly go back again. Just make sure you put enough money on the parking.

Ate here last night with my partner and we both loved it! Service was fantastic and every dish we had was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. We live in Llangollen and the half hour drive to get to On the hill is most definitely worth the trip. Already looking forward to returning.

You'll probably need to book well in advance which to me says it must be popular, and yes it is! For us, it is a "special o ccasion" restaurant with either family, friends or both. We've never been disappointed with the quality of food served and would totally recommend a meal there.

We've been to On The Hill twice for lunch and simply put there is nowhere else within an hour's drive that I'd rather go for lunch - the food, ambience, service and all round experience are all exceptional, and to say it is value for money is no understatement - £15 for two courses is ridiculous, although I guess that...

Food well presented and great taste, excellent value for money. Fisherman's lunch a lovely mix of flavours. Tuesday lunch fully booked and people turn away - they must be doing... More

Not expecting to get a lunch at this very busy eatery we were fitted in by staff making room for the four of us. A relaxed unrushed lunch. Two courses a starter and main for £14.95 was good value opting for the Seafood Salad to start followed by the Belly pork for main. Very well presented and tasty. Service was... More

Booked this for a pre valentines treat and went for the duck, and cheese sandwiches to start and pork for main. The main was a bit on the large side for me but absolutely perfect in taste and who can moan at too much? Everything was gorgeous including the drinks and service and we even got a trio of sides!...
