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...

Stopped there for a quick lunch, halfway home from Caernarfon. The bar is nice and light, and recently redecorated Good welcome, freshly cooked food I had a tasty beef burger, and my wife's salad was v large. Good food. 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

We went to the Penrhos for a meal with our husky, really welcoming staff excellent menu choice I had the pie, meat just melted in your mouth and proper chips. Great value for money and nothing was too much for the staff .

I stayed one night to go bird watching at the RSPB reserve at Yns Hir which is about 30 minutes away. From the moment I stepped through the door I knew this was a good choice. The welcome was very friendly. My room was a decent size (the one with the four poster bed) and scrupulously clean. When I went... More

We (myself, partner and 16 month old son) have visited here a few times within the last 6 months whilst staying at our uncles caravan nearby. Our latest visit was 23/04/2015 and I think shows consistency. The food is all home made and delicious and the staff are very helpful!!! Well worth a visit!
