Love this place. Friendly welcome by staff. Nice ambience. Staff are friendly, helpful but not "in your face". Food excellent. Good choice for vegetarians (I am veggie). No problems ordering extra vegetables if needed. Will return soon.

Visited here while on holiday locally. Visited due to the excellent reviews. Have to say we weren't disappointed. I had the duck and my husband had the steak. Both were lovely. Desserts were delicious also, though I would drop the banana cheesecake (tasted slightly artificial) from the tasting plate. Only reason why I'm not giving 5 stars is due to... More

Very good restaurant with a good choice of fish on the menu. I had an excellent seabass. Nice atmosphere, good service, a little pricey but high quality.

Parking in Ruthin is a bit tricky,so we parked at the bottom of Clwyd Street and walked up the steep incline. The restaurant was quiet when we got there but looked full when we left, with many of the customers clearly regular visitors. The Queen scallop, baby prawn and cod mornay starter was tasty, well cooked and well presented. The... More

Go on, give a go. This has got to be one of the best I know for several reasons. Do you want to know them? Well, alright, but don't tell everyone because its hard enough to get a table already. Well, as I was saying, the menu is great, the food is perfectly cooked and the service is so friendly... More

We visited one weekday evening in September. This delightful restaurant is very popular and booking is essential. Our whole experience was truly wonderful. The restaurant was quite compact, our table was tucked in alongside some railed steps (the restaurant is on a hill so some slight level changes in places) so space was maximised and candle lit. We could only... More

We enjoyed another amazing meal at this gem of a restaurant. We were three couples, and not one of us could find any fault with our meals. Hubby was a bit sad the incredible banana dessert wasn't on the menu, and this was mentioned to the waitress. Later out comes a beautiful " banana surprise ", needless to say he... More

From the street, On The hill looks quite unprepossessing, especially in the daytime. But step inside and everything changes. The bar area is cosy with its candlelit fireplace and the adjacent dining room is very inviting with the wooden panelled walls and old pew type seating. Upstairs there are more rooms done out as if you're in someone's house and... More
