Stayed for two nights in room 2. The room was spacious and well furnished. The whole hotel is exceptionally clean. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The management and chef bent over backwards to accommodate my wife's dietary needs and preferences. Meals were delightful and they have an excellent wine list. Can't fault this place, it ticks ALL the boxes, very...

I often call at the Hand for either a meal or a drink. It's an idillic retreat. The food is 10/10. The presentation and service, are something they pride themselves on. I'm only sorry that I live 10 miles away, as this is the type is place I would like to stay. It would be a great place for that...

We've eaten at the Hand many times over the years and it's always fabulous. Portions are generous and the menu always appeals. It's quite a drive into the heart of the Ceiriog Valley, but well worth it, as the scenery is stunning and the food is delicious. Highly recommended.

Terrific food, comfortable rooms and friendly staff, roaring fire - what more could you ask for? Good range of breakfast choices all cooked to perfection. Guest real ale available. The place is also clearly part of a lively local community.

We had a wonderful one night’s stay at this extremely comfortable Inn. The bar area is welcoming and cosy and we immediately felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. The very friendly owners, Jonathon and Jackie greeted us and gave us the key for our room. We were pleasantly surprised how beautiful the rooms were with...

Called in for lunch(last visited 20+yrs.ago!) last week with the new dog. This is a friendly welcoming establishment run by professionals,lunch was taken from an interesting menu that did actually use top quality locally sourced produce, unlike many establishments today that use the "local" branch of Brakes! Well presented by enthusiastic staff,great portions and sensibly priced. Can be a problem...

This was a last minute booking as we needed somewhere to stay in the area. We have stayed before but in one of the rooms at the back. This time we had the gorgeous room at the front of the pub with an enormous king size bed. It's that beautiful one in the photos. We also had dinner, although we...

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
