The Glynne Arms, Hawarden, to reopen after revamp

A HISTORIC village pub will reopen its doors next week after a massive restoration project.

The Glynne Arms in Hawarden is a 200-year-old traditional coaching inn steeped in history.

Now, following a refurbishment costing hundreds of thousands of pounds, it is to become a haven for foodies across Flintshire when it opens its doors on Thursday.

The project has been driven by Charlie and Caroline Gladstone, who opened the award-winning Hawarden Estate Farm Shop three years ago. They have restored the pub inside and out to bring it back to life.

Charlie said he had high hopes for the venture and told the Chronicle: “You’ll find a warm welcome, a relaxed, easy environment and tasty, fresh food all day in the Grand Old Man Restaurant and also the bar, where there’s masses of space and some quiet corners if you just want to sit, relax and read the paper.

“Visitors are encouraged at all times, whether it’s for a quick drink or a long one, a coffee morning, a cosy dinner, a village meeting, a play rehearsal or a Hogmanay fling. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble.”
