The Springs Spa in rural North Wales is a destination for those coming from all over the UK in search of relaxation and a taste of the good things in life. Their location, just off the A525 between Denbigh and Ruthin, in the rural hamlet of Llanrhaeadr, allows them some seclusion from the hectic modern world, and the buildings themselves – they’re built in the stables of a 15th-century coach house – allow you to truly experience what they offer at The Dining Room: which is British fine dining, Sunday lunches, afternoon teas, breakfasts and barista-brewed coffee, done brilliantly, and with the utmost attention to detail. Book your table now.
The Dining Room accepts American Express (Amex) among other forms of payment.
The Dining Room, set inside The Springs Spa in North Wales, is the perfect place to indulge whether you’re after a simple cafe break or full-on restaurant fare. After a day taking advantage of the spa – their grounds may date back to the 1400s, but their health facilities are resolutely modern and have a five-star rating – you can sit down to a superb meal. Kelvin Parry, their chef, is a local product, and his menu at Llanrhaeadr – between Denbigh and Ruthin, just off the A525 – takes the best of British and puts it on a plate for you to enjoy.
The a la carte menu is packed with the local products that make welsh cuisine what it is. That means lamb rump and beef fillet from Conwy Valley, just to the west of their location between Denbigh and Ruthin, as well as locally-sourced breakfast (Welsh Rarebit, of course, is there) and Black Mountain smoked chicken Caesar salad, for those wanting something lighter. Take a trip along the A525 for a British meal in luxuriant and relaxing surroundings at The Dining Room in Llanrhaeadr.

Excellent meal, good service, pleasant staff. Would recommend lunch at Springs to anyone - 3 courses or less or even a sanwich - your choice.
Amazing Mother’s Day lunch fantastic food and brilliant staff! We’re looking forward to going again. Keep up the good work!
It was my first visit to this beautiful place but will certainly not be my last. A warm welcome, delicious food and attentive service all in delightful surroundings.
Good tasty food and well presented. Perfect location. Staff were very accommodating and polite. Good options on the menu for food intolerances but had to double check on one occasion as an ingredient I couldn't eat was served on my plate but I just asked and they were quick to check ingredients. This has happened before so if you have any dietary requirements, just double check if you do go. To be fair, I could have called beforehand to make things easier. Still very tasty and would return without doubt. Enough options on the menu to suit most people and budgets. Sandwiches were delicious and main meals just as nice if you wanted to spend a bit more. Good location. Easy to park. Beautiful setting with views of the Clwydian Range. Dining room was busy enough but very quiet and it was easy to hear other people's conversations at first. The tables are just a little bit too close together to be able to have a private conversation with someone. However, they turned up the background music and that was much better. As it got busier, it was much more comfortable. Worth a visit and I for one shall return most definitely and possibly take advantage of the Spa as well. Over all it was very good and definitely worth a visit.
9.00am Saturday morning ! Greeted by the friendly Chef Garrant , we were 1/2hr early but he was quite happy to tend to us personally , we gave him our order he went away organised a member of staff from the Spa to make us a pot of tea and he returned 20 minutes later with what I would say is the best Clwydian Breakfast I've ever had ! All freshly prepared local produce Black Pudding , Bacon and sausage from Williams the Denbigh Butcher , local farm Eggs , freshly baked granary Toast and melt in the mouth Fried bread as well ! Topped with fresh mushrooms "oh" and a separate ramekin of Baked Beans for the purists who don't want there Beautiful Breakfast contaminated by Beans! All this and friendly staff for the Grand Total of £7.45p plus a pot of tea . We will be back to give Sunday Lunch a try . David Sutton
A very busy restaurant, the all round high standard remains constant and The Dining Room has become our 'go to' eatery in the area. Following a warm welcome by the owner Harry, he will ensure that you are well looked after and you will soon be seated at your table. Delicious canapés are served, the quality gives a clue as to what treats are to follow from the ample menu.
We had a very pleasant meal at the restaurant. There were a couple of things that would have made it better. The food was all fine. The table we were sitting at had a foot rail underneath that was at just the right height to bang your shins and it was difficult to avoid this. The staff were very pleasant but if anything were over attentive. I think that they were not aware that more than one member of staff was checking on us so our meal kept being interrupted. The only other thing that marred the otherwise good meal was the length of time we were kept waiting, especially for our starters. I appreciate that we were in at 12 but that was a bookable time.
A quirky and imaginative rural venue, compacted in a transformed low-level shed, has blossomed into a widely-acclaimed destination for a dining experience with a difference. Its modest rustic lay-out and wooden tables belies the promise of a memorable culinary experience. The wide-ranging menu of starters, mains and puddings, although not inexpensive, encompasses most discerning dinners desires and the fact that casual callers, who failed to invest in a reservation, are often disappointed to discover the price of their unfortunate presumption, testifies to the popularity and reputation of this appealing and consistently pleasing enterprise.

Beautiful setting, fantastic service, a very warm welcome. Delicious food served on piping hot plates. My choice was lamb, which literally did melt in the mouth. Most food is locally sourced. A couple of small criticisms; although I was quite happy, my husband felt that he had to wait a little too long for his meal - he had skipped lunch and petit-fours promised with the coffee did not arrive. This is a new venture and the crew is young and very enthusiastic. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun. We will be returning.
