This place never fails to impress me. Been here a few times now and we have never had any course that has not been perfect. You can always tell how good a place is by having to book well in advance, so book well in advance. .....well worth it.

Had delicious lunch here in this snug but cosy little place. As a vegetarian I'm very often disappointed by the lack of effort and imagination of most chefs. Not here though. I chose the Indian inspired meal which was a delightful selection of tasty textures and flavours. What a wonderful change. Lovely nibbles to start with and good coffee. Unfortunately... More

We visited the restaurant as an end of holiday celebration, with my brother and his wife. We were made very welcome, and the suitable wait for your food is in a wonderful atmospheric dining room. The service was superb and the food delicious well thought out and deserving of much wider acclaim. My food was expertly cooked, and with interesting and... More

I've been to on the hill 4 times now as I live in Ruthin and although the food is good the atmosphere and layout are not. It describes itself as "casual and cosy" but it's more sweaty and cramped. I took my partner here for our anniversary in November and was surprised how close together the tables are, so much... More

We have been here a few times over the past 4 years and this little "fantastic" restaurant has never let us down, the food is tasty, beautifully prepared and presentation was top notch, and I think very well priced too, we both had the fillet steak one with Blue Cheese and the other Diane, the wine list I found to...

I went to On The Hill as part of a large group having heard so much and expectations were high. The choice did not disappoint, plenty on the menu and, when it eventually arrived, a couple of tasty looking options on the specials menu. The food arrived promptly and was as exceptional as expected. No one in our ground had... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend of a friend who has good taste in food so we decided to give it a try. Six of us visited for a birthday lunch and I have to say everything was superb from beginning to end. The restaurant looks unassuming from the outside but once inside we couldn't have been treated any... More

Have eaten here on several occasions and have never been disappointed. On this occasion I had the Asian prawn duo as a starter and it was divine. For the main meal I had the Asian chicken which was excellent. Each one of our group had various starters, mains and some had desserts and all were complimenting the food served. The... More

Had our works Christmas Meal here back in December, spoilt for choice, so many lovely things on the menu. Went back for lunch with my daughters between Christmas and New Year, so was very fortunate to try some of the other amazing choices of food, definitely best in the area, well done On the Hill.
