AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Restaurant menu
Open all year
Dog friendly

This award-winning, 17th-century pub is secreted in a secluded hamlet between the coastal plain and the beautiful Elwy Valley. The original sandstone frontage and mullion windows disguise a contemporary, slightly quirky interior, which features a log-burning stove and an eclectic choice of decor, with pictures and collages by host Tim Cunnah-Watson. Whilst beers from local microbreweries and Welsh cider quench a walker's thirst; hungry guests are rewarded with a stylish menu that has gained two AA Rosettes for chef Chad Hughes. Local produce is the baseline for dishes that can include a starter of wood pigeon breast with braised cabbage, white apple purée and granola. Mains might be fillet of beef, duck liver, pickled carrot, onion and truffle; or hake with cauliflower, trompette and shiitake mushrooms, salsify and pickled grape. Finish with chocolate tart with salted caramel and passionfruit sorbet. Four sumptuous rooms are available for guests seeking to incorporate a short break.
