Attractive looking pub. I called in on a Saturday evening when it seems to attract a younger crowd - younger than me at any rate! The Hobgoblin was OK if nothing special. The real problem to me was the music, which was awful and deafening! I would call again but not on a Saturday night!

While its not the best pub in Llangollen it is one of the more down to earth pubs. A narrow pub with a courtyard to the rear. Like a lot of pubs of its ilk there is cheap and cheerful food available. 2 handpumps on the bar but only Hobgob on on this visit (and all previous visits to be honest).

On the main street in the centre of Llangollen is The Bull Inn, a former coaching inn with an attractive tiled exterior still referring to “stabling”. It’s a long single room with the bar servery running down the left hand side and the usual mix of seating options that one invariably seems to find nowadays. At the far end is a TV and a pool table. I suppose that, by today’s standards, it’s a reasonably traditional generic town centre pub feel. A door at the rear leads out to a large covered courtyard, which is where, I imagine, the stabling facilities for horses used to be.

Various attractions such as Karaoke and D J’s are advertised and, although there is some effort to attract town visitors, there’s something of a rather downmarket rough and ready feel to the place.

A former Burtonwood pub, it’s now in the Marston’s stable and, on my recent evening visit, was offering Hobgoblin and Burtonwood. The Pedigree gave up the ghost well short of a pint, so I had to make do with Hobgoblin - £ 2.89p – which, in fairness, was pretty reasonable.

I didn’t particularly dislike the pub, but there’s better options readily available close by

Long narrow fronted one room bar on main street.
Now serving Hobgoblin Real Ale.

Edit: Real Ale now removed "For the Winter" as they claim not to sell enough of it.

"Summer" Edit: Real Ale back on for tourist season but now on Banks's Bitter.
