Welcome to The Golden Lion
Legend has it that Jeffrey, a Ploughman, was hanged in Ruthin for the murder of a local farmer. His body was transferred and displayed in a gibbet at Rossett as a deterrent to other would be criminals. A wooden pallet that was used to transport poor Jeffrey's body was used in the construction of the pub. Jeffrey now lives quite contentedly in bedroom 2 upstairs and though still inclined to mischief, is perfectly harmless. Indeed, he has been known to have a sneaky drink on occasion, moving bottles from behind the bar and leaving glasses and chairs upturned.
Inside the pub, the eclectic mix of old and new bring together a comforting homely appeal that is matched by the adventurous menu. The wine list boasts a generous selection of well known varietals with some little known treasures to tell your friends about.
