Having eaten here a few times recently I have to say each time the food has been very disappointing .Sunday dinner was dry , vegetables so hard they may as well have been raw , roasters small and dry and the Yorkshire puddings were like a supermarkets bargain brand . The pub is wonderful and the staff great but the... More

Came across this pub by chance. There is ample parking. On first entry into the pub we were greeted in a friendly manner by staff.The pub has a very cosy feel to it and the warm glows of the various lights scattered around the venue help complete the atmosphere. My friend and i chose a chicken madras curry with rice... More

We recently enjoyed a walk through this area of North Wales culminating at the 3 Pigeons. It is a great little pub with lots of atmosphere, friendly staff, good food and a good variety of Welsh and English ales. I would definitely go there again.

We booked here for our Christmas lunch, as we were staying in the area on holiday. We had a real warm welcome from the Landlord, Landlady and staff, and the pub was suitably decorated to reflect its character. The food was excellent and considering the amount of covers the chef had to cater for, was delivered to the tables in... More

We are here with a big group of friends for a Xmas night out. The place has great character & the staff were helpful & friendly. The food was delicious - the pork got rave reviews but everything was tasty. The Timothy Taylor Landlord beer was in excellent condition & they have other beers on hand pump too. Highly recommended.

Went for our Gardening Club xmas dinner, after a series of poor service events during the meal the final straw was when the owner tried to charge our organiser for more courses than we had, luckily our organiser was so efficient with our order and payment details she stood her ground and refused to be brow beaten by 4 members...

I was most disappointed to read your review and would appreciate a little more information. a review like this can seriously damage a business and we feel that we work very hard to keep this Inn alive and open. Firstly, I was under the impression that your Caffreys was replaced by a gin & tonic by Llio who brought it... More

I booked to take my elderly mother for a celebration lunch based on the reviews. We travelled 30 miles to the inn only to find that the chef had not turned up for work and the restaurant was closed. The owner had tried to phone but only 30 minutes before the booking time and due to poor mobile signal in... More

Sincere apologies for your wasted trip. I would just like to explain the circumstances. Unfortunately on that day the staff were not made aware by the chef that he would not be . He sent a text message to us, (we were in Scotland), half an hour before service was due to start. The staff got a message to you... More

Mied feelings after our dinner here. Wanted a cosy pub dinner by a fire but when arrived was told there was no fire lit, so we were moved to a table in the restaurant. Chair seat was uncomfortable and felt like it had partially sagged leaving me sitting on the frame, so just swapped it one from the adjacent vacant... More
