See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This old coaching inn in the centre of Chirk is situated on the former Holyhead to London road. A large wooden sculpture of a Welsh dragon presides over the lounge bar, where the real ale handpumps are located, and bar food is served. Meals are served in the classically-styled restaurant. The old brewery building behind the hotel is now converted for functions. The Salopian Shropshire Gold is on permanently, and the other two taps change between other micro breweries and national brands. There is a caravan site nearby.
