“Well, druncanveasey seems to have hit the mark with his rating. Immediate impression on entering is how ruddy friendly and talkative the landlord is. I'm fairly sure whatever your background is, this guy will have a story or opinion pertaining to it. Which is good, I guess. In many ways it's the perfect landlord, taking an interest in all the regulars and keeping the conviviality up, even on a rainy tuesday evening. Unfortunately he doesn't brew much nowadays, but there are an admirable range of Welsh beers on cask, couple of ciders including Dee. Impressively comfortable setting with roaring fireplace, lots of books dotted about, interesting historical posters. It's a great stop if in the area, though easy to miss (slow down on the bridge, it's basically down a steep dip on one side) and although it doesn't quite live up to the expectations of a CAMRA national pub of the year, it's undoubtedly the best of the area.“

“In a dip in the road where the small river is, this is a traditional multi-roomed pub, and ridiculously busy on the Sunday evening I visited. There was an event in the rear garden area where many people had congregated, but that meant the queue at the bar in the front room of the pub was several deep despite 3 people serving. It’s a worthwhile ale house though if you do get to the bar with seven guest ales on other, but sadly none of their own when I was there, which was the purpose of my visit. Nevertheless it had local specials including from Deva Brewery across the border alongside ales from further afield. It has a car park at the rear as the bend and dip on the main road make it unsuitable for stopping.“

“A friendly welcome, decent selection of ales and some cracking pork pie. Not the best pub in Britain but certainly going out of your way for it. It has it’s own car park and is also very handy for Ruabon rail station.“

“Visited 08/12/12 prior to Nuneaton Town’s 6-1 demolition at Wrexham. Reigning CAMRA Pub of Britain, apparently- my first visit to any such lauded venue. Is it worthy? In some senses, yes; extensive, regularly updated chalkboard of hand-pulled obscurities served in oversized glassware, all immaculately kept; roaring hearths, slate floors, picturesque spot beside babbling brook, stack of board games. Bit disappointed they only had one of their own beers but one had just gone and the condition of the others on the bar more than compensated. It’s glaringly not the best real ale pub in Britain but you knew that and I do kind of get where CAMRA are coming from bigging it up when you consider its unlikely location (in the real ale desert of Wales), newness and unquestionable commitment to The Beer. Well worth a look or minor detour if en route to a thrashing at the Racecourse Ground.“

“CAMRA UK Pub of the year: visited 14th April 2012 before Grimsby played Wrexham. Lovely friendly place, short walk from the railway station. Brewer behind the bar; his parents own and run the pub while he brews behind it. Always some of their own beers available along with local guests. Roaring fire, uneven floor, various styles of furniture, other rooms and overall a very pleasant place to rest and drink in.“
