Well what can we say!! This is a gem of a restaurant tucked away in Llangollen. We visited with another couple during a few days stay at a nearby hotel. My husband found it after reading the excellent reviews. The staff are great, really pleasant and knowledgeable about the food and wines, there's an excellent vegetarian choice for me. All I can say is you need to eat at this restaurant to realise why it gets all the excellent reviews. Superb food, superb wine, excellent service, be prepared to go home satisfied and full.
Make sure you book beforehand so as not to be disappointed

Standard fare available in the many places to eat in Llangollen but little that is standard here. We were able to experience many of the offerings by choosing the "starter" rather than the main from a selection of dishes. This worked well and although some were not what we expected all were well prepared and interesting. Wine choice amazing and Pip Gale is a fine host.

I can only give 5 star because I couldn't fault the place. After being unpleasantly rejected by another place right in the water we wondered around Llangollen looking for a decent place to have a nice food in a proper classy restaurant rather than a pub food. So we ended up here. Not only the food was fantastic and even better than the original place we were meant to go to but also the staff was very proper and polite, took time explaining things and you didn't have to drag every bit of information out it was just given to you like they knew exactly what you would want. Really enjoyed our time. The atmosphere was very cosy and warm. And yes the food was amazing.

We stayed for 8 nights, during a very sad time for us and the Gales family. We definitely felt an epithiy as we were all grieving.
Pip and all the team made us very welcome, it helped us cope during this difficult time, even though they were feeling the same.
I can’t praise the Gales highly enough, the fabulous rooms, food and company is second to none.
We both were thinking of you on the 9th April and hope it went as planned, the sun hopefully shone on you all.
We were made to feel like family.
We will see you again very soon.
