Nice cafe too with well priced food and a good RSPB... More

Lovely reserve with well maintained hides and a stunning view of Conwy Castle as you walk the back part of the reserve by the mud flats. Lovely tea room too!

They loved looking under... More

Stopped off here for lunch after the Conwy Half Marathon - a very pleasant cafe and shop awaited. The cakes and snacks were lovely and the service was efficient and friendly. I would go back if I was in the area.
