Description: This stunning, 16th century public house has been at the heart of Llanfwrog life for several centuries, having served travellers and locals on the outskirts of the beautiful medieval market town of Ruthin for nearly 500 years. Our historic Grade II listed building has recently undergone a major refurbishment, bringing the inn and the facilities on offer up to date without losing any of the charm and character that have made it such an enduring and enchanting feature of the picturesque Vale of Clwyd for hundreds of years. We also have a brand new beer garden with 6 individual patios, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. The bar itself offers a fantastic selection of draft beers and lagers - including locally produced ales from the renowned Buzzard Brewery - while our impressive wine list has been hand-picked for us by our very own wine importer.

Gorgeous food in a relaxed atmosphere. Decor is lovely stylish shabby chic . Couldn’t fault the food or service. Will definitely visit again soon. Very classy place to spend time with family and friends. Thank you.

I recently visited Ye Olde Cross Keys in Ruthin. I had the most fantastic warm welcome. The food was outstanding ad the service couldnt be faulted. The choice of specialist wines was a bonus and I will certainly look out for the next wine or gin evening as they are well worth travelling for. Looking forward to my next visit

We have been to the Cross Keys before but this time the service was awful. We had booked 1.30pm on Mother's Day but were not seated until nearly 3; the meals were inconsistent and a long time coming. There was little choice for vegetarians on the set menu and we were not offered any other menu. The waiting staff hardly came to the table so we were without drinks most of the time, and when asked about missing Yorkshire puddings, we had finished the meal by the time any staff came back and so cancelled them.
The quality of the food was OK, but the delay caused problems for homeward travelling.
It won't be high on our revisit list!
