Sixteenth-century inn ‘the Pant’ (as owners Brunning & Price fondly call it) occupies a substantial, “very comfortable” Victorian property a short drive outside Wrexham; and its conversion has created “a great pub: warm and bustling in the winter, loads of outside space in the summer” and offering a “reliably good beer selection” too. Given its high standards, the odd reporter this year did quibble with the food, but overall this “very busy” destination remains a “favourite year after year”.

This “cracking pub” – a spacious and rambling sixteenth-century inn from the Brunning & Price group – feels “like having your own country club!”. It’s “very comfortable, with good beers” and “excellent ever-changing food served in generally substantial portions”, plus “warm service and a big garden for the kids to run around in”.

This sprawling sixteenth-century inn is set in “lovely surroundings” with sweeping lawns and gardens outside Wrexham, and serves “super gastro-pub meals”. Part of the Brunning & Price group, it makes a great place to “break for lunch on the way to North Wales”.

"Very comfortable, good beers, friendly staff, however their food hasn't quite come up the normal high standard on our last four visits. Good for beer, comfort and good company!"
