Sadly this pub doesn't open until 5 and if you're in Llangollen for a day and have trains to catch home then you're not gonna get much time in here. Which is a shame because it is a good pub.

A very popular pub on the A5, just 350 yards east of the town centre. The large main room has two open fires and is slate tiled. The stage to the left of the lounge hosts live music, usually Jazz on a Thursday and Rock or Blues at the weekend. The limited edition Yellow Submarine Jukebox entertains when the band is not playing.

There is also a back room 'snug' with attractive cut-glass mirrors above the bench seating. The door leads to a covered outside area which has large screen TV and three large ornamental flying turtles! Often described as eccentric? Yes, thats why its so good!

Six changing Real Ales are always served. See the web photo for latest selection at sunllan. com which is updated regularly.
Now open at 12noon every day until late for the summer (Winter opening time 5pm, but customers are encouraged to use the landlords other pub, The Ponsonby Arms, just across the river, that opens all day, and serves 10 changing guest ales and 2 real draught ciders).

Owned by the same people at The Ponsonby,this pub is aimed at a younger crowd but delivers the same high quality real ale experience from the six handpumps.The front room is square and open plan with some supporting iron columns while to the left side is a raised area for a pool table,yellow submarine juke box and table football.Behind the bar was a back room but inaccesable on my trip.We headed here after quaffing in the Ponsonby and were pleased to see a number of their customers ,several of the bar staff and guv'nor make the same journey.It was all together more lively despite the non appearance of the band due on at 9pm.
The ale choice was from Salopian Hop Twister (excellent £3.20),Kelham Island Pale Rider,Ulverston Rule Brittania,Three Tuns Stout with a cider on a pump.
I really enjoyed my visit to this GBG listed pub and I would always make it a double header with the Ponsonby whenever in Llan.
