It's great to say we are back open again!

...albeit with a few new guidelines...

To keep things simple, it’s pretty much as it was before, but it’s now the ‘rule of 4’, instead of ‘the rule of 6’. The positive news is that up to 4 people can meet from different households and this doesn’t include children under 11. So, two couples can meet, along with their under 11-year-old children. Also, if you live in a single household you are be able to have a table larger than 4, so long as you all live under the same roof in Wales. The same guidelines apply for outside too.

It has also now been confirmed that, for tables up to 4 (excluding children under 11), the person who makes a booking will need to show some form of verification of their name. For example, a driver’s licence, bank or credit card. For bookings over 4 (excluding children under 11), all adults will need to show that they live under the same roof. So please bring along something official with your name and address on, such as a driving licence or utility bill.

Tables of up to 4 can be booked online here. For tables over 4, please call us on 01978 869 555.

Just as a reminder, when you visit us, please wear your masks when not seated at your table.

We look forward to seeing you soon.


As the name so clearly suggests, our pub was obviously a mill long before we took over and turned it into what it is today. As you walk through the door you will be greeted by a great jumble of old beams everywhere, and the water wheel turning slowly behind the bar. The decks outside are built directly over the mill race and the rapids, and on the opposite bank of the river, steam trains arrive and leave from the restored station.

Mountains and hills rise all around Llangollen which is a seriously active place for a small community - in July there is the International Eisteddfod, a massive music festival where choirs from some fifty different countries compete; there is an accompanying Fringe festival based in the theatre behind the Corn Mill; hot air balloon festivals and jazz festivals, food weeks and international canoeing competitions... and a great pub on the river.


Our passion lies in finding quality fresh ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure.
