We didn't stay here but, if the Sunday lunches are anything to go by, then this pub has dramatically improved over the last few years although some TLC is still needed to really smarten it up. There are several rooms on the ground floor, including a small bar (with card players), a pool table room popular with the youngsters, a dining area with football on Sky TV and a dedicated dining room complete with tablecloths which is where we sat. Choice of 3 roasts for £7.95 and these were excellent value (loved the parsnip shavings as the decoration as they suggested the chef cared about what he was serving). The Offa's Dyke Thirst Brew was in very good order, Black Sheep was also available although the Doom Bar had run out. Would certainly consider re-visiting and its current rating of just over 4/10 seems way too low to me.

We stayed at the Wynnstay over new year, the barmaid who had the unfortunate accident with the hair dye was a delight, her sister was a disappointing barmaid who seemed more interested indrinking the profits. The landlord, what can i say, he was a wonderful entertainer and took care of all the staff personally, then disappeared for long periods suffering from insults hailed from the barmaids. There was also dancing on the bar which i must say whilst surprising brough coyote ugly to llangollen !!!! cant wait to go back, its was fawlty towers and people should pay good money for that !!!!

Had the misfortune of staying at this hotel recently. Very unfriendly place. Landlord was a right miserable git, as was the barmaid who seemed to have had an accident with a bottle of red hair dye. The young barman was nice enough though, but couldn't compensate for the dirty, overpriced hotel rooms, the foul tasting lager (don't think the pipes have been cleaned this century), or the stale smell of piss from the older locals who were huddled in the corner drawing us dirty looks. There are plenty of better places to stay/eat/drink in Llangollen than this cess pit. Have given it a rating of 1 out of 10 only because it is marginally better than the truly horrendous Benson's across the road from it!

Nice traditional 400 year old multi-roomed pub/hotel in the centre of Llangollen. It was formerly a coaching inn.

On the left as you go in, up a few steps from the street, is a games room, served by a hatch from the main hotel bar on the other side of the entrance. This main hotel bar is cosy and comfortably furnished, and is evidently used more by locals than hotel residents. On my recent evening visit, it had quite a lively, but friendly and welcoming atmosphere. There's several other characterful drinking/eating areas on the ground floor, but these were virtually deserted, leading to a rather strange atmosphere as a whole.

There's an outside drinking area at the back where horses used to be stabled overnight.

After several minutes of vigorous pulling on the handpump, the barmaid concluded that the Adnams Broadside had run out. Neither the Speckled Hen nor the GreeneKing IPA were available either, so, in the absence of any proper beer, I decided to suffer a half of John Smith's Smooth. The pub was last in the GBG in 2007 - but perhaps there is less commitment to real ale now?

As pubs go, I quite liked this place, but they need to get their act together on the real ale front.

Yes it has high steps to enter - these were designed so you can easily dismount your steed or step from your carriage without having to step in the road. These front steps are even worn with the footsteps of the perhaps hundreds of thousands of people who have entered the building over its long history and itís a pleasure to add oneís own to that tally. While the wooden bar its self is new the original ground floor room layout remains, and it is not modern - it is stepping back in time! Good luck to the landlady Liz. The place is worth a visit.
