Review on The Corn Mill
The Corn Mill certainly lives up to its name. Walk through the door and the first thing you notice is the splendid jumble of weathered beams and the mighty water wheel turning behind a glass panel. Outside, on the decked gangway of this renovated eighteenth-century building, you can watch the mill race and the tumbling rapids of the River Dee - or gaze across the bank to the steam trains leaving restored Llangollen station.
Drinkers congregate in the two superb bars, done out in genuine style with slate floors, pews and up to six real ales (mostly from microbreweries) on handpump. Those after solid sustenance tend to head up the striking open stairway to the pine-floored dining areas, where potted plants, prints and big picture windows set the scene and a lively modern gastropub menu awaits.
Food is served throughout the day, and the choice ranges from ploughman's, sandwiches and burgers to more ambitious stuff along the lines of home-smoked duck breast with melon and black treacle dressing or seared sea bass with crab bisque and watercress mash. In between, expect roast topside of beef, tagliatelle with smoked salmon and braised shoulder of lamb, while puds span everything from mulled fruit strudel to chocolate truffle torte.
