Halkyn is a tiny little village in the North Wales county of Flintshire, close to the River Dee and a short drive from Prestatyn and the beautiful coastline of the Irish Sea. Within Halkyn is the rather unpretentious 18th century pub known as the Blue Bell Inn.

The Blue Bell Inn is the perfect retreat for any visitors to the area, offering a warm welcome to all who step through its door. If you feel like getting to grips with the local language, why not drop by for one of their evening Welsh conversation classes? Or simply stop in for a pint with live musical accompaniment.

Expect to find a good range of local beers on tap here, as well as a wide variety of award-winning artisanal perries and ciders. Similarly to the alcohol selection, the menu is filled with dishes that use local produce. A nearby farm supplies the buffalo that you’ll find in the stew, for example, and all of the fish on the menu is caught using line and pole.

And best of all – the Blue Bell Inn is a dog friendly pub, meaning you can enjoy all of its many pleasures with your canine pal at your side. Find out more at:
