The Bull Hotel is another firm favourite in our list of places that we recommend in Abergele. Here you will find delicious, traditional food served with a smile. You will always be made welcome in this Welsh gem. Dog and family friendly, owners Jamie and Craig took over the pub and put their hearts into making it their own. Alongside their beloved pug, Frank, they can be found in the kitchen and behind the bar, entertaining the regulars and making new comers feel right at home. Nothing is too much trouble and the food and well stocked bar offer everything you could ask for from your friendly, local pub. The Bull Hotel is open from 12pm to 11pm, Monday to Sunday.
