Called in on a Saturday night, two choices of ale and a few lagers on tap. Friendly staff, unusual setting of a modern building but with decor of an old pub with various antiques hanging from the ceiling. A little more relaxed than the Bull on the main street but beer is 50 pence a pint more.

Amazing looking restaurant and decor. The waiter who served us was new and hadn't been trained. He served me a warm proseco and at £6:50 that was unforgivable. Our soup was delicious so no problem there. On asking for 2 espressos he had no idea how to work the machine and the boss wouldn't help him! After some assertiveness on...

We have had 4 days at the Bensons in Llangollen and we have stayed here before and I'm pleased to say that it hasn't lost any of its charm. Room 6 and 5 look over the river Dee with very big balconies it's totally stunning to sit there taking those views in. The restaurant serves very tasty home cooked food...

We stayed here myself and partner for one night in June and was a last minute walk in booking! The room was OK however very old fashioned and in need of a good refurbishment. We stayed in room 5 which didn't resemble anything like it advertised eg jacuzzi or water bed but we were not interested in that anyway however...

Providing you don't expect to receive anything more than you are paying for, you will be perfectly fine in this hotel. The rooms are simple and a little dated, I stayed in room one and suggest the bathroom could do with renovation. Particularly as I had hotel staff banging on my door in the morning whilst in the shower, as...

Stayed here for a stag recently .... I don't want to be too critical of the place as the staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble however the hotel requires some significant improvements! The rooms are really dated and the shower is literally just a squirt. The tap was leaking and squirting all over the bathroom. In summary,...

Had a couple of steaks with a bottle of wine for £25 it was ok and we had a lovely view of the river Dee. Staff were friendly and were very approachable. There were comfy seats by the faux fire and a good selection of food and local brews. Great views and comfy seats.

Arrived mid-afternoon on a Saturday with a view to watching the Wales v Australia Rugby World Cup match. We had tried various other pubs looking for a combination of having a bar meal in sight of a TV set. Looking in through the glass front of the pub we saw just what we were looking for, lots of seating i.e....

Visited here this month as we was staying in Llangollen, the interior decoration was beautiful, drinks were reasonable priced, and the food was delicious especially the vegetarian lasagne, must say alot nicer than other known places for food in Llangollen . The hotel is on the river so views from dining room are wonderful! Staff were very friendly and welcoming...
