Review on The Hand at Llanarmon
The village of Llanarmon D.C. is reckoned to be the jewel in the crown of the beautiful Ceiriog Valley, and the Hand Hotel is a centuries-old one-time drovers' inn that serves its community well. A carved wooden hand greets visitors at the entrance, while the interior is suitably atmospheric (think rustic furnishings, exposed stone walls, a crackling fire and low beamed ceilings).
Food aims to please, whether it's local sausages and mash with cabbage and gravy, ploughman's or Helen McArdle's renowned steak and ales pies. If you're in the mood for something more fancy, the kitchen can oblige with the likes of grilled red mullet with celeriac and ginger purée, slow-braised salt marsh lamb shank, or confit of duck with sherry sauce and pan-fried wild pigeon breast. For afters, try chocolate bread-and butter pudding.
The hotel is also noted for its scrumptious Welsh breakfasts - and you don't need to be a resident to take advantage of these splendid repasts.
