Dinorben Arms, Bodfari

Dinorben Arms
A historic country pub is to reopen eight years after it closed when the owners went into administration. The 17th Century Dinorben Arms in Bodfari, near Denbigh, Denbighshire, has been acquired by the Brunning and Price group. The Dinorben was put on the market for £175,000 when it shut in 2007 after a period of decline in trade. Bodfari was once famous for St. Deifar’s holy well, where children were dipped three times ‘to prevent their crying at night’. Some people believe that this well is the one on view in the ‘Well Bar’ of the Dinorben!

Church of St. Stephen
About three miles to the North East of Denbigh, in the settlement of Bodfari is the striking Grade II listed Church of St. Stephen. Although the main body of the church was extensively rebuilt in 1865, it has a large medieval tower, thought to date back to the 7th century. This peaceful Church consists of an attractive West tower, nave, chancel and south isle with a south porch, and a vestry at the eastern end of the isle. All of which can be visited by booking a prearranged visit.
