Great atmosphere generated by Matt, Gill and Peter and their staff. Constantly changing selection of proper beers on offer. Thai buffet yesterday was excellent quality and value. If you're anywhere near pop in and experience what a local pub should be like.

The Bridge End is a truly brilliant, traditional pub. The annual beer festival is a great event, and the selection of beers this year was second to none. Having been to quite a few festivals, the beers and atmosphere at the Bridge End was one...More

This is a decent pub just a few minutes walk from Ruabon train station with bags of character. It has a good range of beers, and a beer festival every year over the August Bank Holiday. I go to several beer festivals each year and...More

Fantastic array of craft beers to try at a very reasonable price. Great atmosphere. Get there on friday or Saturday to avoid disappointment as the popular beers run out!
