As if being housed in a 16th century building isn’t enough, Rowand and Imogen have gone above and beyond with the interior styling of On The Hill, with beautiful exposed dark wooden beams, oak floors, intimate, muted lighting and the beautiful paintings of Rowan’s great-grandfather adorning the walls, giving On The Hill a homely touch while still remaining stylish. Open for lunch and dinner, you’ll find an array of British dishes using only the best quality and local produce from around Ruthin. We told you this town centre space goes above and beyond.
As for the menu, well, On The Hill changes its menu depending on seasonal supply, and to showcase the very best of the team's culinary prowess. You’ll find dishes like king prawns, sauteed with garlic, chilli, sambuca and served with crispy calamari and risotto cooked with chicken, home-cured pancetta, leek, peas, spinach, cream and parmesan for starters. While mains include On The Hill’s take of British classics like local char-grilled steaks with all the trimmings, goat cheese Wellington, you’ll also find creative dishes like Asian-style duck or the Italian-style chicken trio.

You’ll find it on Upper Clwyd Street in the town centre, just be sure to reserve in advance to avoid disappointment.
Staff are very attentive, great atmosphere, and needless to say food was delicious as always! We highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to going back again soon.
We came for a meal for my birthday with our 4 week old baby. They were very accommodating and helpful with putting us somewhere I could feed and room for the car seat. Food was out of this world. Couldn’t recommend this place more. Lovely staff :-)
A most enjoyable lunch with friends, lovely atmosphere, and excellent service. Food was perfect as on our previous visit. We will return in the near future. Edna Thomas, Gwernymynydd
