Booked to stay and decided to eat in the restaurant on the first night, the staff were welcoming and chatty i wasnt sure what to have, so the waitress recommended dishes, citing whether they were light or rich, we ordered the lambs liver with bacon and mash and vegetables, and the lasagna she recommended a side order of chips and...

We were staying at the nearby caravan site and decided to go here for a meal on a Wednesday evening. It was very quiet as it was early January; we ordered drinks at the bar while we had a look at the menu. Once we'd ordered we were asked if we wanted to eat where we were seated, which we... More

Tried a lunchtime snack. Have to say the two meals for £10 were good, and nothing to complain about there. Unfortunately, there were three of us, so one person had to chose off the normal menu and ended up with a meal costing £10 in itself and hardly much difference to the size of the half price meals. That said,... More

Four of us went for dinner on New Years Eve and ate from the al a carte menu in the restaurant . I'll cover the food first.....The starters were good in terms of taste (game terrine, mackerel pate and mustroom filo parcels though there were very few mushrooms actually in the parcels and there needed to be more toast for...

We popped into The Hand as it's fairly close by and we could take the dog with us in certain parts of the bar / coffee area. We reserved a table and was served quickly and politely. We both went for the steak burgers. They were fantastic, excellently presented and tasted amazing. Reasonably priced considering the quality on offer. Plenty... More

The initial wait to be seated took ages... but after that it was all positive. The food was delicious and our waitress great. "is this a welsh restaurant?" - yes in so far as its in Wales - produce may be locally sourced but tbh didn't look.

Recently stayed in Chirk at the campsite and went in for a meal. However we ended up just staying for a drink and then leaving. Bar staff didn't seem too interested. Rubbish cider (as seems to be the norm in Wales sadly) and the carpets had seen much better days (badly stained). We definitely won't be returning or recommending it... More

We were staying in chirk .in our touring caravan. Long way from home. The Hand Hotel was local to where we were staying. As were many other eateries,so after scrutinizing many sites we settled on the Hand, we were not disappointed. We had not booked. And were offered a table very quickly. It was very busy and obviously popular with... More

I have lived in Chirk but I have never been in the Hand Hotel. My friend and I decided to give it a try. It is very deceiving because the car park which leads into the bar area looks nothing fancy. It's only when you walk into the lounge/dining area that you see the true picture. It has a lovely... More
