Taste Test: Pen Y Bont Farm, Mold


Geraint Jones

PEN y Bont Farm is probably a familiar sight to those who travel around Mold regularly.

Having previously enjoyed a lovely meal there, my wife jumped at the chance for a return visit.

The family-friendly restaurant has a modern yet rustic atmosphere that lends itself well to an enjoyable dining experience.

Situated on Chester Road, off the roundabout and Mold bypass, Pen Y Bont Farm is easy to find and boasts plenty of parking.

Also adding to the overall experience were the friendly and efficient staff.

Glancing at the menu revealed a wide array of dishes and a varied selection of alcoholic and soft drinks.

The specials menu also offered a varied selection of dishes.

After perusing the aforementioned menu, I ordered the 20oz mixed grill, served with salad and chips, opting for a peppercorn sauce to go with it.

The rump steak, gammon, lamb, pork and Cumberland sausage were all excellently cooked, and the meal was


My wife decided on the risotto with cod, salmon and swordfish from the specials menu.

As she is expecting a baby, she could not have the swordfish, but kitchen staff were happy to substitute the swordfish for extra salmon.

She was equally as impressed with her well-presented and tasty main course.

For dessert, my choice was a delicious cherry pie sundae, boasting vanilla and cherry ice cream, sugar dusted puff pastry and whipped cream – finished with a tangy cherry coulis.

The dessert of choice for my wife was a salted caramel, pecan and fudge brownie – and it was another treat for the tastebuds.

How it rated:

Ambience 8/10

It’s fair to say that we both thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Pen Y Bont Farm and will definitely visit again.

    Are you for real ? after visiting this place twice each occasion was a complete letdown poor food presentation poor service . Curries that had been thrown on the plate , two varieties of curry that looked and tasted the same , cold rice cold chips. Long wait for drinks slow service . Tried the place again to give it a chance even worse result ! This time even worse service slow to get asked for drinks and order even when the place nearly empty !!!
