We have just come back from a weekend stay in this Inn. I have had the most wonderful weekend. My birthday treat from my husband; we cycle and planned to go mountain biking in Llandegla Forest as well as take in a few walks.
The hospitality we received from the moment we arrived to leaving was second to none. The Inn is run by the locals; they all 'muck in' on a rota basis to do their bit - the pride they have is utterly without question. We staying for two nights (Fri/Sat) in a self contained studio above the pub. It was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchenette was fully complemented with all the necessary kitchen equipment. We had fresh milk in the fridge for a cuppa with tea, coffee, sugar (not usual for S/C) but as we had arrived late we opted to head for the bar.
Friday is Fish'n'Chip night - Fresh Haddock was on the menu... I'd phoned ahead to make sure we had a table but was informed we had to be there before 8/9pm as they couldn't guarantee they'd have any left - well they weren't kidding the place was packed. So you really do need to get there early as they only have 4 options on the menu and the Inn is so popular the favourites go fast. The prices are very good ! FishnChips £7.95 each and well worth it the Haddock was beautifully fresh served with home made chips & tarta sauce - delicious
My husband likes real Ale he was offered a few small glasses of each to taste and settled for a locally brewed Ale - we settled down to our lovely fish & chips - served by Val & Eira the best waitresses ever !! These two ladies started our weekend with such big smiles and such fun we knew we were in for a real treat.... & it continued to be such all weekend.
I would absolutely recommend this Inn as a lovely base to explore. Don't expect grandeur - its an Inn - if your expectations are for real, down to earth, local hospitality you won't be dissappointed.
