This imposing dining pub enjoys magical views from the gardens over the Alyn Valley towards the rippling hills of the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The edifice was originally a judge’s country residence, converted some years ago by the Brunning & Price group. Their hallmark style of polished wood, country and quirky prints, quality antique furnishings and largely wood flooring complements the building’s original Arts and Crafts style. The pub’s real ale pumps find Purple Moose Brewery and Timothy Taylor side by side, and there’s a great wine selection to match the plates of fine pub grub coming from the kitchen. Typical of these are a starter of pheasant, rabbit and prune faggot with celeriac purée and wild mushroom gravy; and Sicilian fish stew with salmon, prawns, mussels, squid, and red mullet served with aïoli. There is a choice of children’s meals and smaller portions of some adult dishes. Beer festivals in March and October coincide with national food weeks.
