Our outside space is now open – Hooray!
We can now welcome bookings from groups of up to 6 people from mixed households (excluding children under 11 and carers), to enjoy some alfresco eating and drinking. We do have outside areas that can be booked online from April 26th and May 17th or alternatively, we are keeping some tables aside should you just want to pop down and enjoy a drink or a bite to eat without a booking. (Please note, during busy times, there may be a wait for tables without a booking. Also, from May 17th when we’re able to open inside the pub(!), you won’t be able to book outside tables online. Any bookings made from May 17th will be for inside the pub).
Whilst we are obviously all keeping everything crossed for good weather, it’s best to come prepared for every eventuality, so wrap up warm, bring a blanket and perhaps even an umbrella, just in case. If the heavens do open, we’re really sorry but we won’t be able to allow you to shelter inside the pub. We can't wait to see you all again.
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.
