You have a great selection of beers on - what a pity Arriva have stopped the X94 Chester to Barmouth via Llangollen! It now means a 3-bus journey for me and more time and expense so I rarely venture into Wales now.

It is well worth the effort. The beers are ALWAYS on top form. I often try them all in the 1/3 of a pint glasses and never had a suspect one yet, even when there are more handpumps than customers! :drinking: :drink: :drunk:

Is this just a winter bus time table or a permanent fixture?

Permanent. 2 or 3 years ago the X94 Chester-Barmouth service was reduced to X94 Wrexham-Barmouth.

When we go to Chester we take turns driving, but if I had no car or we all wanted to drink we get a taxi or bus to Chirk or Ruabon and get the train from there, easy :wink:
