A PUB with new outside facilities has been officially opened by the mayor of Rhuddlan.

The New Inn Hotel Rhuddlan re-opened in line with Covid relaxations on April 26.

The venue now has nine pods and 30 tables in its beer garden. There is also a new children’s play area.

Cllr Arwel Roberts, mayor of Rhuddlan, said: "We wish Steve Gill, the owner of the New Inn in Rhuddlan, and his family all the best in the future and all other businesses who are now re-opening."

The venue is taking bookings for all the covered seating areas and pods.

The Welsh Government hope to give the green light to the hospitality sector - bars, pubs, restaurants and cafes – to open their indoor areas from Monday, May 17, together with all other tourist accommodation, indoor entertainment and attractions.
