Glan yr Afon, Dolphin

Lovely food, welcoming and own taxi service if you want to leave the car.

Celtic Arms, Northop Golf Club

More pricey but lovely food and a great outdoor area for children. You need to book.

Red Lion, Northop

Much cheaper and kids eat cheap before 6pm. Great welcome and lovely sweet chilli chicken.

The Britannia Inn, Halkyn

Really nice meal and a lovely walk through the woods. Fab views over the Dee Estuary, can even see beyond Liverpool to Blackpool Tower on a clear day.


Things to do

If you have children under 12, Greenfield Valley is fab. Around £35 for a family ticket and they have great events on every day in the holidays making it excellent value for money. It is also open weekends in the winter.
