A POPULAR cafe near Llangollen has been named one of the UK’s best roadside diners and cafes.

Later this month eating establishments should be able to welcome hungry guests indoors, and that's good news if you want to stop for a bite to eat during a road trip.

The petrolheads at Select Car Leasing have picked some of their all-time favourites, as well as some of the amazing dishes you can sample there.

Among them is the renowned Ponderosa Cafe on the Horseshoe Pass - known for its stunning views and popularity with motorbikers.

Sitting 1,400 ft above sea level, the cafe is situated on top of the pass, with nearby views overlooking the Dee Valley towards Llangollen.

Select Car Leasing director, Mark Tongue, said: “A road trip isn’t a road trip without a pit stop for some hearty grub.

“And the great thing about these establishments is that many are located on brilliant driving roads - perfect if you’ve got an appetite for a bit of twisty fun as well as great food.”

Others included in the list are Ace Cafe, London, Loomies Moto Cafe, South Downs National Park, Caffeine & Machine, Warwickshire, Jacks Hill Cafe, Northamptonshire, The Oil Can Cafe, West Yorkshire, The Feathers Hotel, North Yorkshire and Hartside Top Cafe, Cumbria.
