Visited On the Hill on Saturday evening with my husband and my parents and everything about this place was brilliant. The food was absolutely stunning, and there was plenty of it too. The menu is quite extensive so there's plenty to choose from and a lot of the starters/ desserts are like a small taster plate. It's also very reasonably... More

Imogen told me the lamb was local Denbighshire fayre. Wonderful, do try it! My dining partner had the new Moroccan selection, also really tasty and interesting for vegetarians. Can't wait... More

The food here is beautiful, the staff are very attentive and you will not be disappointed. My husband ordered the selection of fish and struggled to finish it, the steak was amazing and so was the mango and passion fruit meringue. If we lived closer we would visit more often.

We have eaten here several times now and the food is the best there is for miles around. Prices are very reasonable (especially at lunchtime) and the staff very friendly and efficient. I can't think of another restaurant where I have had such consistently excellent meals

I just called in off the cuff and what I found was friendly welcoming staff, brilliant cocktails and amazing food. For this standard of food the price is very reasonable. I don't just recommend it, I strongly urge you to try it. Great experience. I would recommend you book ahead as the place is always very busy.

We booked an early evening birthday tea last Friday, we took our two children aged 5 and 8. The table was booked for 5.45pm and as we arrived we could see that the restaurant was busy with early evening diners. We were shown to our table and drinks were offered immediately. The children were offered anything from the menu as... More

Joined my cousin here for lunch on his recommendation. Blown away. Far, far better than I expected. Food was unfussy and full of flavour. Without doubt, next time I am in the area, 100% going back for more. Service was professional but friendly. Prices for lunch extremely reasonable. I would have happily paid more
