Britannia Inn  

The Britannia inn was built in the 14th Century by the Monks of the nearby Valle Crucis Abbey. The Inn is situated at the foot of the Horseshoe Pass and has a commanding view of the Vale of Llangollen. Well known throughout the area for it's good food and hospitality, the Inn is a favourite for locals and holiday maker's alike. As well as featuring in all the quality Food and Hotel guides it has also featured in many publications abroad, more recently it was favoured in the L.A. Times as the place to stop in North Wales. Another attraction for visitors to the Inn is it's award winning gardens, credited with no less than 15 Wales in Bloom awards. Many visitors seek out the Head Gardener for advice on plants, flowers and hanging baskets and more than a few go away clutching a cutting or two and smiling broadly. Many of the flowers in the garden are rare as they were grown experimentally by the gardener for Dobie's seeds. The Inn has accommodation and each of the seven en-suite bedrooms are individually decorated and furnished to a high standard. All the rooms are decorated in a cottage style and each double or family room boast either a four poster or half tester bed. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and a colour television. An iron and ironing board is also provided. If you have a preference for either bath or shower you should ask when booking. Fine foods, wines and hand pulled real ales can be enjoyed in both lounges. The food menu offers a wide and varied selection of home cooked foods. Fresh produce and attention to detail have made the Britannia Inn the first choice for many a local and hungry traveller. From the ever popular Britannia Homemade Steak pie to our Stuffed Plaice Royal, they guarantee you a pleasurable dining experience, whether it be in the comfortable surroundings of the two lounges or weather permitting, outside on the garden terrace. For your comfort one of the lounges is strictly no smoking. The beers on offer are Theakston's Best and Theakston's Old Peculiar. They also offer wines from throughout the world and a variety of bottled beers. Both lounges abound with antique brass, can you guess what the object is above the main fireplace? Accommodation: rooms from £65. There are also bargain prices for longer stays, please call for latest prices. Plenty of walking in the countryside about. To get here from the A5 turn right at the lights in Llangollen then left at the end of the bridge, follow the horseshoe pass road, we are a mile past the Valle Crucis Abbey (just look for the flowers). From Chester follow the signs for Wrexham, take the wrexham bypass then follow the signs for Llangollen. Once in Llangollen, drive past the Bridge on your left and they are a mile past the Valle Crucis Abbey.
