Wrexham Route Revealed with More Pubs!

ANYBODY who’s ever been on the Wrexham Real Ale Trail might find it hard to believe that it could get any better.
With ten pubs, buses arriving at each one every 30 minutes and a ticket price of just £15 each, it’s pretty much perfect for real ale fans or anybody looking for a fun day out with good friends.
But we aim for absolute perfection here at the Real Ale Trail – and we think we’ve just taken a step closer by adding THREE MORE PUBS to the route.

The Black Lion


The Black Lion in Bersham, known locally as The Hole in The Wall, has featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide a whopping 20 consecutive times!
Owned by brewery Hydes, it has recently come under new management but continues to serves great real ale from across Wales and the UK.

This traditional pub is popular with locals and walkers alike as it overlooks the delightful Clywedog River and is adjacent to the Clywedog Industrial Trail.
