About Us

The Blue Lion sits at the crossroads of the lovely village of Cynwyd which nestles between the town’s of Corwen and Bala in beautiful North Wales.  It’s a Grade 2 listed building which we have very tastefully renovated to accommodate the old values of a proper local pub and also a quiet, intimate place where you can sit and enjoy a delicious meal prepared by our award winning chef.

Through to the bar we have more space for you to enjoy. Our games room holds darts, jukebox & games machines. Our main bar room boasts our 55″ TV screen showing all our Sky & BT sporting events live.
We then offer our bar lounge area with comfortable seating for socialising, dining or simply just fireside relaxing.
If something quieter is to your liking you’ll be taken through to our sumptuous restaurant where you can enjoy our a la carte menu, or weather permitting have it outside on our terraced garden.
We cater for all dietary requirements and have a well stocked bar of both local and national beers.
We are walker and biker friendly so pop in on your way past for a coffee and cake, or just to fill up your water bottle.
If you would like to stay longer and look around our beautiful village, or use it as a centre for one of the many walks around the area, then we have three apartments to rent upstairs.
For dining and the availability of rooms can all be booked online or just give us a call.
