About the Pub

Saved after a lot of hard work by the local community, the Tyn-y-Capel at Minera reopened in April 2013. It is an ancient coaching inn with records dating to 1250 AD and described as a 13th century monks retreat. The monks on their pilgrimage from Valle Crucis Abbey would visit the site and it is thought that they would stop to feed the lepers who lived on Minera mountain in the caves, through the mullion window in the wall of the pub. The oldest part of the pub is the stone flagged porch entrance. It passed into private hands in 2017 but is still staffed mostly by local people. Outside is an extensive seating area that affords great views of the Esclusham Mountain. The house beer 'The Cat in the Capel' is brewed by Facer's. The 3 changing guest ales often come from microbreweries both near and afar. The pub is building a reputation for good food which is available every day from a varied menu. A new conservatory is planned.
