One of the highlights of the week, tried to visit here a couple of years ago but couldn't find it as it's below eye level (also suspect the pub sign was off the wall being re-painted).

Although fairly busy the owner took time out to come and have a chat, and having established we weren't staying close (in Chester) gave us some good advice about where to eat.

Only down side was there weren't any of their own (McGiven) beers on so had a pint of Facer's Flintshire Bitter, which was pretty good.

I was due to be travelling through Ruabon with possibly time for a stop-off, so I had a look in the GBG to see whether they had anything listed, and spotted this place. Very glad I made the decision to drop in.

As expected it is next to the bridge on the main road – but also about 5 or 6 feet below the level or the road, and the grandly named “Bridge Street” (the official address) is very small and insignificant. On entering through the front door, you are immediately presented with a choice of unmarked doors – to left or right ? Choose the one to the right, as that leads to the main bar, which is long narrow and low beamed with (as per the season), a roaring fire at the far end.

There was a choice of 6 or 7 real ales on tap, most of them of some interest. I went for the McGiverns Matt Black a 5.3% stout, brewed on the premises that was very nice.

There wasn’t any room to sit at the main bar, so I was ushered through another door into a smaller room at the back, on a higher level. This also had a fire, and also a hatchway to the bar, though you weren’t allowed to order there (a notice said so). Both rooms had newspapers, brochures, leaflets and bookcases full of well thumbed books. Very much a living collection.

I’m not sure about food. Nothing I saw advertised any, but when a couple opposite me got up to leave, they cleared some plates away. I suspect the food might be of the “pork pie” variety ?

7/10 – a warm welcome, I will be back

Stopped off here a couple of weeks ago to check out last year's national pub of the year. This is a pleasant little village local a few minutes walk from the railway station and home to the McGivern Brewery. Whilst a good pub, I think there are better pubs around the country. The bar staff were friendly and eager to impart their excellent knowledge of beer. Locals also seemed to be well up on their ales. Beers on were Salopian Darwin's Origin, Hobsons Mild, McGivern Bridge Bitter, Bridge Pale & Pyramid Porter, Tatton Blonde & Montys Moonrise. Ciders were Abrahalls Thundering Molly & Rosies Triple D. A good pub and certainly worth a visit if you're in this neck of the woods.

Visited again this afternoon, really good to see it busy mid-afternoon on a Sunday.One McGivern beer on (Decipher). Beer quality good, except for Orme Best, which tasted like it had a brewery fault, rather than cellermanship.
