The Best Restaurants Near Rivercatcher North Wales

 

A heart-warming stay at Rivercatcher in any season is spectacular (We’re not biased, we're just that good).

But staying with us during the autumn is especially memorable. Our entire grounds become the epitome of cosiness and warmth, a three course meal of crisp leaves, gorgeous views and log burning cabins. And what better accompaniment to this is there than an actual three course meal at one of the many incredible eateries within the surrounding area? Even if you only fancy one course, a quick snack or an award-winning ale, before dashing back to slip on your complimentary robe and lounge by the hot-tubs for the remainder of the evening.

 

Here’s what’s on offer around Rivercatcher:

 

Close to Llandrillo

The Dudley Arms VISIT THE SITE

The Dudley Arms

Being the proud British accommodation that we are, we know that there’s nothing quite as good as popping down to your local pub (there are three wildly popular soap operas on TV built exclusively off that premise).

The Dudley Arms is the perfect location to go off and enjoy some fresh, home-cooked seasonal food – including the popular steak-and-ale pie that’s a winner all year round – with the whole family. It’s located only a short fifteen minute walk away, so you can even treat yourself to a pint of their infamous Station Bitter from the award-winnning Stonehouse Brewery – as no designated driver is required!
