Visited on a weekday lunchtime in early October and, perhaps unsurprisingly, the place was virtually empty. The restaurant section is at the back of the pub and overlooks the Dee Valley and route of the Llangollen Steam Railway. Staff were friendly and volunteered variations on the menu listed offerings. I made the mistake of having a starter which was substantial and left me feeling full even before the main course arrived. For a main course I had ordered a steak and kidney pie which was excellent: none of the chain restaurant ceramic bowl of gravy with a token piece of meat and a covering of pastry – this was a big slice of real pie with proper pastry and full of meat – proper great big chunks of it. The accompanying veg was nicely cooked too; the problem was there was so much of it and, having consumed a big starter I was left embarrassed by the amount of wasted food I left on my plate. Highly recommended – but remember portions are huge!
