We had heard about this establishment but never been there before. Walking through Llangollen on a cold miserable evening we happened to be passing and looked inside and tried the door. Unfortunately, we were 45 minutes before opening time!!! However, the door was unlocked and we were invited in - a lovely touch. We chatted to the owner (nice welcoming... More

Me and my partner went here after it being recommended to us. Atmosphere was good inside, front of house was very welcoming, we were sat on a table for 2. However the menu was on a chalk bored out of eye shot so we had to get up and walk across the restaurant to find it. The menu was small,... More

Have used the wine bar every so often for many years. Welcome and service couldn't fault. Menu is a bit iffy. Settled for steak. Ok but nothing special. Given homemade horseradish sauce. No taste but full of salt. Wine as usual very nice. Need better menu and better food. Shame as love coming here. Hopefully just a glitch.

I have been visiting Gales since the mid-1990s, and found it pleasantly bohemian, with tasty food, and a great selection of drinks. Unfortunately, on this occasion (my first for 2 years, now that I no longer live in the area), I found rather a few thing lacking. The waitress was very pleasant and amenable, but was hampered by a surprising... More

We have eaten here a couple of times, the food is good, friendly staff and the surroundings provide a nice dining experience. Both times my steak has been overdone, so if you like medium, I recommend asking for rare, you can always ask for it to be cooked a bit more. Otherwise this is a great place to eat!

Try the 28 oz steak if you dare lol. Wine excellent and sharing boards of the meat and cheese an excellent idea. try a bit of wine tasting too.
