“Absolutely fantastic, very happy we chose this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

we booked a table for two at this restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor. we were in Ruthin for one night staying up the road at Ruthin Castle.
Our table was ready on arrival and we were given menus, full of fresh produce and lovely welsh dishes to choose from. I opted for a chicken risotto starter and my husband chose the sweet chilli prawns. we were also served fresh bread and this was topped up as we were enjoying it so much. There was free flowing water on the table which we never had to ask to be refilled. the starters were full of flavour and plentiful in portion.
For main I chose the welsh lamb three ways, and my husband went for beef two ways, these were served with a large bowl of vegetables and side bowls of the potatoes we chose. Both main dishes were absolutely fantastic, and cannot find fault with any of the food we had. It is deifinitely one of the best meals we have had, and we were both so full it was shame we had no room to try a dessert as the ones we saw come out looked exquisite.
If you are visiting Ruthin we cannot recommend this restaurant enough. we spent about £60 for the two of us, with two courses and drinks. Great Value for money.

“Where have all the lovely chips gone?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

Have been going to On The Hill for a few years now. I've always been impressed until this month.........what's happened to the chips? Overcooked, way to thin and tasteless! Such a shame as they've always perfectly complimented my meals in the past. Please, please can we have your old style chips back?
