This is the second visit we have made to this pub and on both occasions we found it very good value and the staff are exceptionally friendly. If you have an adversity to dogs then it must be said that there are two chocolate Labradors- very well behaved- which roam around. No problem at all for us but some people... More

We found this pub by accident and only had 10 minutes before the kitchen closed. Staff are relaxed and friendly, the service was good, the food was great (both veggie and non veggie). The pub was warm and comfortable with couches, fires and dog friendly which was lovely. Will definately go again.

Met at this proper Pub for a family gathering, walk & meal, not disappointed. We were allowed to park our cars, use the facilities and on our return from our walk the Pub accommodated our large group an hour earlier than we had booked (faster walking than anticipated!). The Service was great, the Staff friendly & efficient especially considering they... More

When I had ordered some drinks, there was an issue with my change. I paid with a 20 pound note, but the staff said I paid with a 10 pound note. So I got change from 10 and not from 20, costing me 10 pound. Will never ever go to that place again.

Not the best advert for Whitchurch. Surroundings not bad but the food and service is more transport cafe than even pub grub. Good carpark.

Dropped having hired a narrow boat from Wrenbury. It was a Saturday night and understandably had a little wait for a table but it was well worth it. Food was great.

Husband had steak and kids had kids meals, sat in a fab little snug, whole pub just lovely. Staff were welcoming and so friendly, small shelf... More

It's always a pleasure to visit this well run eatery just on the outskirts of Whitchurch . The boating fraternity love its position just across the road from the Llangollen Canal. Food and drink are delivered with a smile and a chat from the staff. I'm looking forward to my next visit which won't be too long in coming.
