Where we ate in Llangollen

If you follow me on social media you might know I recently got back from a trip to Llangollen in North Wales; it was amazing, and one of the main things we did was eat... a lot! If you're a foodie planning a trip, here's some of the best places to eat in Llangollen.

Corn Mill

This is a Brunning & Price pub right on the River Dee; it has an outside terrace which I imagine is amazing in the summer, but we sat upstairs when we visited. It had a very calm, peaceful and friendly atmosphere, and it wasn't too busy during our visit. We got drinks first (a pink gin and a pint) while we pored over the menu. Everything sounded lovely, and in the end we went for the Malaysian curry and the braised lamb shoulder. Both dishes were the perfect size, and everything was so well-cooked. The flavours were an absolute delight, the textures were spot on, and everything was just so enjoyable. It's not the cheapest place you'll ever eat, but it's so worth it. This easily comes top of my list for the best places to eat in Llangollen!

Dee Bistro; Corn Mill

Also situated right on the river is the Dee Bistro, which is a really homely place that we went to for lunch. The views were incredible! We both had a baguette with chips and a side salad; they were standard but really tasty, came out super quickly, and were pretty big portions. This is an ideal lunch spot, and I think we paid around £20 for the two meals and two cokes - about what you'd expect for somewhere so central with these views. Spot on, if you ask me.

Three Eagles

Three Eagles

Hidden down a little courtyard area is the Three Eagles, a lovely warm pub which has an extensive menu including some great offers and a wide range of cocktails. They're dog-friendly and even have a pup menu; there is seating outside and they have a separate loft bar area, and the food was utterly delicious. My girlfriend has fish & chips while I opted for a big juicy burger and fries, and we also had a pint each followed by three cocktails between us. The bill was £60 which felt completely fair for the amount we ate and drank. The decor here is really lovely, and the staff were brilliant too. Definitely add this to your list of places to eat in Llangollen!

Fouzi's; Cottage Tea Rooms

Cottage Tea Rooms & Bistro

We came here for breakfast one day - sausage butty and a full English - and it was all good. Standard food and standard prices, cosy interior, really central location. I can't remember what we paid but it definitely wasn't too expensive, and the full English came with a free pot of tea. Definitely somewhere to consider if you want a cooked brekkie during your stay!


Labelled as a cafĂ©, bar and pizzeria, this is an Italian restaurant just off the bridge - we legged it here in torrential rain from our little holiday cottage on the other side of the bridge, so the location was ideal as it's one of the first restaurants you get to in town. Anyway, we'd already perused the menu but when we got there and saw the specials board, it all changed; my girlfriend went for the lamb chops, and I order the chicken and chorizo risotto minus the chorizo. The staff were friendly and the portion sizes were huge; mine annoyingly did come with the chorizo in, but I just picked it out with my fork. The dish was delicious other than that, and Kate absolutely *loved* her lamb chops. She got a hot chocolate to take home and I got a Belgian waffle to go, and it all came to under £50 for all that and three Cokes.

Oggie Shop; Corn Mill

Llangollen Oggie Shop

I had never tried a Welsh oggie, despite having been to Wales probably 387 times, so I vowed to try one - and where better to get one than the Llangollen Oggie Shop?! I opted for the beef, swede, potato & black pepper oggie which I believe is very similar to a Cornish pasty. It was delicious, and I can't wait to get another one when I get back. I had mine heated up and if I remember rightly it cost me three quid - and it was really filling. Lovely stuff!

So that's everywhere where *we* ate in Llangollen; I think we did pretty well, and there are still a few places left for us to try out on our next Welsh break. There are so many places to eat in Llangollen, and definitely options for every taste and budget. Where would you opt for?
