Blackthorn _ left this review about Owain Glyndwr

A street corner pub in the main shopping area, that capitalises on it’s location is a pedestrianised street with a decent amount of outside seating. Although traditional looking from the outside, it’s got a somewhat more contemporary interior than might be expected.

It’s essentially a single room bar, but divided in to different sections with low level partitions and a couple of steps here and there. There’s wood flooring and the paintwork is mostly maroon, although there is also some heavy flock wallpaper, and one small corner feels almost like a hotel lounge with it’s floor to ceiling wood panelling and a large chandelier. Elsewhere recessed spots sit in the plain white ceiling, which seems an odd combination. There’s a large curved corner bar with wood panelling, and blue lighting behind. A couple of plasmas were tuned to a sports channel.

There was an extensive pub grub menu, divided in to several sections such as Sandwiches & Ciabattas, Pub Favourites, Burgers & Grills, etc. Most of the mains were priced around the £6/£7 mark, but we didn’t sample anything so cannot comment on the quality.

An A-board outside advertised a “Great selection of cask ales” but this should be perhaps qualified with the fact that they all come from the same brewery (Felinfoel). These were Best, Celtic Pride and Double Dragon. Ciders were Gwynt y Ddraig Farmhouse Scrumpy, Strongbow and Magners Golden.
