Our youngest granddaughter came to visit for the first time after 3 years studying at uni. We booked her and her partner in at the Penrhos Arms as we don't have a spare room. Both of them said that it was the best B & B they had visited and they travel a lot. They went for a walk before... More

My family and I stopped for lunch here on the way to St Asaph. We were welcomed and were very surprised at such good value food. The food arrived quickly despite the pub being busy. My son loved the lovely chips. A real gem of a place, fantastic value for money and a lovely atmosphere.

Visited this venue on our way back from Lake Vyrnwy and had a starters and a main course. The food was very good value and filling. Well worth a stop. The formal restaurant looked nice and we presumed it was for the evening menu. Friendly and welcoming staff.

WOW!!! We stopped off here en route to mother in law's house. We both ordered the breakfast and it was amazing!! We will definitely be going back there again. The young gentleman who served us was polite, charming and very welcoming. Wish we lived closer!! A very full and varied menu, atmosphere relaxing, portion sizes extremely generous!! Definitely worth stopping... More

Popped into the Penrhos whilst on our way to Borth y Gest from Bristol. In need of refreshments & toilet stop after 3.5hr drive, we couldn't have had a better welcome! The young chap behind the bar was incredible - it was 11pm & we tentatively asked about any food/bar snacks. He kindly offered chips & bread whilst telling us... More

This place was empty of staff when we visited, we waited by the bar and eventually a sour faced woman turned up. We ordered paninis and they were nice enough but the bread was toasted and not the fillings which was a bit unusual, we had a side of chips which were amazing and a much friendly staff member was...

Looking at the menu which was simple and prices looked very reasonable. Will pop in again when we are in the... More

If we ever find ourselves in this area again I would definitely go back. We visited here during our last night at Gwalia farm, we called in for a couple of drinks and stayed to play pool. And at 50p a game who could blame us! It's a gorgeous place but watch out for the low doorways my new husband... More

We were staying nearby and this was walking distance. The second you walk into this place, you are made to feel welcome. Customer service is a top priority and they really can't do enough for you, but not in an overwhelming way. Everyone is treated like part of the family. The portions are not small and are great value for... More

We visited twice while on a weeks holiday in June 2015. We had a meal both nights and received a warm welcome with our 2 dogs, my partner said the beer was top notch ( he's very critical ) and both times our food was faultless. Will definitely be visiting again very soon, and may even try the hotel facilities.... More
