We both needed a relaxing break after Christmas, so we heading back to the Grapes @ Maentwrog for 3 nights. As always Simon and his staff were genuinely welcoming . The food was better than ever, on all 3 nights we ate there. As a trip out, we would highly recommend a drive to Harlech and a walk along the... More

A group of us went for food here and it was a lot nicer than we expected. Last time I ate here it wasn't that nice but now its under new management I thought I'd give it another chance and I'm glad I did. The food was nice and the price was more than fair. The staff were all lovely... More

Spent the night here while working in the area and wished I was able to have stayed longer. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, the room was very comfortable and tidy with a separate shower and bath. The food was of a high standard and very good value for money as was the real ale. Couldn't have asked for... More

Went to the Grapes a couple of weekends ago for a meal with my hubby and daughter. We were taken through the bar to a room at the back that looked like it was used for breakfasts for residents as there was a fridge at the end of the room with cereal on top. The room was cold and lacking... More

Stayed here 1 day a week for 6 months. Finally decided on the best item on the menu, and it's the Cajun Chicken, closely followed by the gammon. Great place...alas non of the bedrooms could get the Wi-Fi, you need to stay in the bar.

Thoroughly recommended place to stay. Staff couldn't be friendlier or more accommodating. Great atmosphere in the bar with friendly chatty locals as well as residents. Food is great - nothing flash but a good selection (including Veggie), all freshly cooked from quality ingredients and nicely presented. Rooms are very nicely appointed with modern decor combined with original features - someone... More

Fab Food, Fab Beers, Fab Staff, Fab Manager! All that you could ever want from a local pub. The food is getting better and better and I can highly recommend the homemade Burger and homemade Pie. This is a lovely traditional pub full of character and charm and we are always guaranteed a warm welcome. Would recommend you book for... More

WHY I WILL NEVER RETURN TO THE GRAPES HOTEL, MAENTWROG: What kind of hotel turns away a young family at 11.25pm on a cold night who were running out of fuel? The Grapes 'Hotel', Maentwrog. THE MANAGER(I've since learnt) who greeted my partner and I said he wasn't going to check anyone in at that time, saying, 'THIS ISN'T A... More

This is a lovely pub in a wonderful setting , the garden and building are really old and full of charm. I've read the other reviews about friendly staff and would have to disagree. We have been in several times recently on a Saturday and whilst the beer is great and the pub itself charming our experience of the service... More
