Three traditional pubs you must try in Llangollen

Our trip to Llangollen involved a lot of delicious pub food – not complaining – and you can find a selection of our favourite places below. One thing to point out is that all pubs we visited were dog-friendly and we had no issues whatsoever travelling with our fairly bulky dog.

The Bridge Hotel

We went to this pub to have lunch after climbing the Castell Dinas Bran (you can read more about it here). I don’t know whether it was the cold or the tiredness, but I had sausage and mash, and it was the best I’ve ever had. The gravy to mash ratio was impeccable, and it only got better once I made the bold decision to order a sticky toffee pudding. Blake had a burger, and that was delicious too. The only downside was the slightly longer wait (35ish minutes), but the food quality made it all worth it. On top of that, the location is excellent if you’re on your way to visiting the town centre.
 

The Sun Trevor Inn

As I mentioned in our previous Llangollen blog post, we stayed in one of the cottages owned by this pub’s landlord, so it was pretty handy for us to stop there a few times.
Their menu offers a variety of meals from a reasonably light panino (I know you call them panini in English, but that’s the Italian plural, and I really can’t get myself to comply!) to some heftier traditional meals like fish and chips or a roast.
The main event, though, was – without a doubt – the Wednesday night pub quiz. Give it a go, and let us know if you do better! We came seventh out of ten, which was a poor result, but we had great fun.

The Telford Inn

Last but not least, we had a banging fish and chips at the Telford Inn. This pub is convenient if you’re on the way back from your aqueduct visit. Both the food and drinks offered were excellent, and we were all pleasantly surprised with the portion sizes (we were starving, as usual!).
On top of awesome food, there’s a pool table and quiz machines for some healthy wind-down entertainment after the walk.
We had our dog Headrow with us, and there were no issues for us to bring him in and let him lie under our table.
