unless you are starving and haven't eaten for a week.........then please do not waste your money by spending it on food at this pub. It states that the steak pie 'is famous'......for what I ask as my portion was served with uncooked pastry, it was tasteless and again that word......terrible. The food is also way too expensive for the quality, There was water dripping from the ceiling and we were told that it only happened that day...yeah right....is that why the wooden floor was swollen? What can I say about the decor and atmosphere........yes that's right absolutely nothing as I cannot think of words to describe the dusty pieces of awful junk that were just lying on shelves.......probably since at least the 80's. I can only think that the management think that they have a captive audience as it is the only pub on this part of the canal. Oh and before I forget.....my partners beer was off and when he questioned this he was told that it was at the bottom of the barrel....no replacement offered so we wouldnt even return for a drink! Shame as we were looking forward to eating here as looks so nice outside.

Staying over the canal at a cottage, Good location for boaters, and on a nice day watching the boats go by. Staff friendly and helpful. Pub could do with a make over. Our meal two adults and one 11 year old. Three starters, two prawn cocktail, quite nice, chicken wings, were ok. One liver and bacon with new potatoes, potatoes hard liver bearable. Two scampi, bland. Bread was vile. One shandy, 2 large wine, 2 j2o, Approx £65.00. Such a shame, but you can understand the owners, if your on a boat, moor up and want to eat at this location, there is no other pub within a reasonable distance. We did not use this pub again to eat.

Conveniently located at the end of the Pontcysyllte aqueduct with spectacular views down the canal, this pub has the potential to be a great place to visit. Sadly, when we arrived we found a slightly run down pub serving traditional bar meals which were nothing special, but generally good value for money. The ham salad was nice at £6.95 and the meat pie was genuinely home made and quite filling.
There's nowhere else to eat in Trevor at night within walking distance of the canal basin, so on the whole it's OK, but if you're expecting gourmet food - don't bother.

Lovelly location, pleasant staff but let down by food/ chef
We ordered 2 ham and tomato sandwiches , the ham was fine but on 2 of the thinnest pieces of bread I have ever seen and about 10 pieces of cress and 1 slice of cucumber .
For the price they should have provided decent bread and some salad, a total rip off!!!!
