Quinno _ left this review about The Fat Boar

A very recent refurb and name change from the Black Horse, this is now best described as an upmarket (for Wrecsam!) pub diner. Diagonal wood planks, undressed brick, black and white tiling, Farrow & Ball shades – that sort of thing, quite well done to be fair. Decent rear garden is a bonus. Four pumps with three ales on, stouts from Boss (a terrible blackcurrant flavoured mess, NBSS 3), Big Hand Dry and more regulation ale in Stationhouse bitter, which was so-so (NBSS 2.5). Noted that the punters in this place had the cleanest shoes in Wrexham and one female specimen who entered during our stay looked like Pete Burns (Big Brother era). Odd. But very Wrexham. 5.5

The "tired" old Black Horse has been transformed into a modern pub and restaurant similar to its "sister" pub, The Fat Boar in Mold. The light, part tiled and part wooden, floor gives the place a bright clean look, but the very rough pointed bare brick wall makes it look a bit unfinished. Three Real Ales are now served, including the house beer Fat Boar Gold. Again, like the Mold version, the restaurant is on the first floor, but I did not venture upstairs for a look.

Not great and people inside generally look bored.
