A popular pub at the entrance to the harbour with car parking for four vehicles. An amazing view of the Menai Strait. The B&B facilities are in need of much TLC. The corridor carpet was ingrained with dirt and the bedroom carpet was sadly in need of a strong shampoo. The shared shower and toilet were inadequate for the number... More

This was a perfect find, as a stop over between camp sites we were so happy too find this b&b. Breakfast was an amazing fare. Be aware that it is a pub and so late nights with music do go ahead, but if your'e happy to join in its a great little stop over. Thanks for a wonderful trip!

Stunning sunny evening and a few beers over looking the harbour outside a beautiful old pub. That's where the Anglesey Arms charms end. We ordered food. My heart sank as I unrolled the "Treasure Map" menu... I was there for work, so not my call. The menu sounded pretty bleak, several types of burger, my companions all had variations of... More

You could not get nearer to one of the UK's finest historic monuments. This hotel actually abuts Caernarfon Castle. There's a very pleasant view across the port and out into the Menai Straits. Such a shame, therefore, that the furnishings, décor and facilities have been allowed to age and deteriorate. A complete refurbishment is needed. En-suites to replace the shared... More

Called into the Anglesey for lunch and had Fish & Chips which were superb. It was such a lovely day so I dined outside. The setting of this pub is magnificent and the new owners are really putting this pub on the map. Will definitely return to try their Sunday lunch Carvery.

The Anglesey Arms certainly lacks finesse, but it is a great local boozer with open-mic nights, very friendly staff, Sky TV in one bar, a reasonable though basic range of beer. The location is up there with the best in the town, on the sea front right next to the magnificent castle with just the best sunset views. One thing... More

For some reason, the Anglesey has become our base point when we’re in Caernarfon, not because it’s a pub - there are many others around although this is a pretty good one - but because of its location. It’s nestled, or dwarfed, by the walls of Caernarfon Castle, and it’s right on the waterfront. This gives you excellent sunset views,... More
