Booked in for a Sunday lunch, it was beautiful. The service was polite and courteous. The food was great and the ales were very tasty. Couldn't believe it was a community run pub, which made it all the more enjoyable. Many thanks.

The steak and chips with onion rings was excellent, the steak was soft and melt in the mouth and the onion rings were to die for! The steak is from Jones the butchers in Ruthin (one of the best in the area). We thought the deal was excellent value. The new chef Kate is really making top notch food.

Stayed B&B on recent walking holiday with friends. Good choice on menu, big portions and delicious dishes and lovely ambience. It is run by village volunteers and everyone was friendly and helpful. No breakfast provided but store next door and facilities in room. Lovely bed!

Had been staying in lovely accommodation in the village and had been recommended to visit The Raven especially as it is owned and run by the local community. Recommend you book first as it gets busy. What a great surprise and evening! We were welcomed and spoken to before we even got into the Inn. Friendly attentive staff/locals showed us... More

Accommodation and rooms were very comfortable, and well equipped, - pub was one of the friendliest that I have ever been to, and drinks very reasonably priced. Don't take a meal for granted though, you need to check before hand, as food is not available on every night, and it is set up for you to cook/bring your own breakfast,... More

We live nearby and our village doesn't have a pub so we frequently visit The Raven for great and friendly service, an excellent selection of local ales and ciders, good pub food at honest prices and a devilishly hard quiz on Tuesday nights! Delightful setting with a lovely garden out the front overlooking the church, ideal for refreshing with a... More

Had Sunday roast which was very good with wide selection of vegetables on the plate. Service with a smile and nothing too much trouble. Good friendly atmosphere in the bar and food service. Excellent choices of desserts. Will be back soon.

Visited tonight as a group of four. Three of us had fish and chips which was excellent, my husband opted for the chicken curry which he said was very good. Excellent service and really good value for money.
