Lovely spot in a quiet valley. Excellent meal by the fireside for my 89 yr old mum in law. My wife and I took her for lunch. Starter and mains nicely cooked. Service just right. Best egg custard ever. Superb all round

Beautifully appointed room. Warm, friendly atmosphere. Great choices of beer & cider in the pub. Nice amenities. Delicious breakfast. The owners Jackie & Jonathan were very accommodating & helped us find us our room for the next night in another area. Warm & comfy. Quiet village. Would highly recommend! :-)

Having seen the reviews of the Hand at Llanarmon, I knew instinctively that it would provide me with the peace and solitude that I needed. From the moment we walked through the door, we realised that we would be taken care of in every way. The pub/hotel is run by a lovely professional couple - Jonathan and Jackie Greatorex -... More

Nothing bad to say about The Hand. The room was gorgeous and overlooked a field full of sheep and everything so clean. We were given a wonderful welcome when we arrived and made to feel at home straight away. The food is delicious if a little overpriced but that is because of where it is. Despite that we had a...

We had a red letter day gift and gave friends the choice of which of the selection of available hostelries they fancied a long weekend at. They chose The Hand. I was a bit surprised but well pleased with what we got. Lovely ground floor rooms for us all, great as we have some mobility problems, and we weren't kept... More

The owners and staff were very attentive and polite. The accommodation is very clean and finished to a high quality. Extremely comfortable bed. I am 9 months pregnant and we had a superior room, which was lovely. I needed extra pillows and de caf tea and all were supplied no problem. The restaurant food was delightful, and decent sized portions.... More

Lovely Sunday lunch here - and a bit different from a standard version. I chose the pork loin and it came on a gorgeous pearl barley risotto. Beautiful little village, very picturesque and the pub is in the centre. Would recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hand is an ancient hostelry with all the attributes you'd expect - bags of character, a cosy, relaxing ambience and a warm welcome from your hosts, Jonathan and Jackie Greatorex. As soon as you arrive you feel the weight of the world dissolving as the surroundings work their magic. All the classic ingredients are here - old beams, roaring fireplaces, a casual mix-and-match of pine and oak furniture, real ale and good food. The latter is seriously good. Thanks to the talents of Head Chef Grant Mulholland and his team, The Hand is renowned for award-winning food, an inventive marriage of country fare and sophisticated metropolitan cuisine. The bedrooms, in a variety of sizes, reflect similar influences, with rustic decor and sparkling modern bathrooms. Country lovers just love the location. You can walk in the Berwyns for hours with only the sheep for company and the ever-helpful Hand can arrange many country pursuits, including horse riding, fishing and shooting. You may be away from it all, but you'll also be in the swing of things; this gem of a country inn is so much a part of village life that locals and visitors mix in unaffected harmony. ... more   less
