About Us
The Nant y Felin
We’re an independent family-run gastropub comprising of husband and wife. Rob is Head Chef / Patron, whilst Vicky heads up the front of house team.

Meet the Family

Vicky and Rob have both been in the restaurant trade for a number of years and have now decided to take on the Nant y Felin together to create their family business.

Rob is a very passionate chef with the motto ‘simple execution of good technique.’ He’s been in the trade for over 25 years working in a variety of high end food establishments, always with an emphasis on fresh homemade food.

Vicky is local to the village of Llanrhaeadr, having lived in Ruthin for the first 20 years of her life and then in the surrounding villages since – always calling Ruthin ‘home’.

Our Food & Drink

Rob is a keen forager, therefore most of our garnishing herbs are grown and picked from our garden or sourced carefully from our local environment.

We bake all of our bread in house, including our popular sourdough which is nurtured and baked daily. We also make our own ice cream by hand on the premises, including flavours such as rhubarb ripple, nougat and marmalade!

Our menu consists of a large amount of gluten free options and we are also happy to cater for any other dietary requirements if made aware in advance.

We believe in the quality of Welsh produce, so we use CLD Meats of Denbigh to supply all of our meat as they can tell us exactly where it has come from – which is often a local farm.

We also serve a fine selection of beers, wines and spirits, including our very own Nant y Felin Pilsner on tap.


We have some artwork for sale around the restaurant which are photos taken by a local photographer, Pete Owens. The photos are all taken in North Wales, many of them in Ruthin and the surrounding areas. For more information on Pete’s work, you can visit his website: www.bagofstripesphotography.co.uk

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Take a look around and we hope to see you very soon at the Nant y Felin Restaurant and Bar!

Best Wishes,

Rob & Vicky

"Outstanding food, exceptional service, beautiful decor"

… Michelin star food brought to Denbighshire. An elaborate menu is nothing unless you can pull it off and this place really does.

"Delicious and locally sourced!"

This is a lovely family run restaurant! First time visiting for me… Really tasty wine, and delicious food. I had the black pudding & the liver – cooked perfectly, perfect portion sizes too. Very accommodating to customer needs, friendly & approachable.

"Best vegan meal I’ve ever had"

I cannot overstate how stunning our Sunday lunch was here, what culinary talent and warm hospitality we found in abundance at Nant y Felin, an absolute gem in North Wales.
