The Aqueduct Inn
Standing beside the busy A5 the pub reopened in 2013 as a freehouse and has been revitalised as a consequence. It’s a simple three-roomed affair with small central bar, small games room and comfortable lounge with wood burner. Rear verandah decking offers panoramic views not least of the Llangollen canal as it approaches the eponymous world famous aqueduct. Food includes Sunday lunches and is very popular. Additional parking down the lane. Passing bikers are welcome.
Revisiting this memorable pub was a delight and the welcome was just as friendly and warm as ever from innkeeper Nick, who is extremely keen on showing off his upgraded premises, and he’s every right to be proud. This former coaching inn on the A5, near Llangollen, has not only an extremely rich and varied history, it actually gets its name from the tallest aqueduct in the world, which is right next to the pub and this 18-arched Thomas Telford Masterpiece has a footpath running alongside, probably best viewed before you sample one of the pubs fantastic artisan beers, of which there is a magnificent choice. There is a relaxed, happy atmosphere in this extremely popular inn, serving delicious food including a huge Sunday lunch. With classy upgrades in the rooms and bar room, it makes a perfect place to stay.
