We stopped at the Penrhyn Arms during a tedious journey on the A470. It was four O'clock, too late for lunch, too early for dinner, or so we thought, but we discovered that The Penrhyn Arms serves food all day. We were soon sitting down by a log fire (lit especially for us) tucking into a fabulous meal complete with... More

Two day stay this week.Monday till Wednesday. Enjoyed this visit. Top of range pub food. Staff first class and room very comfortable .All very clean. Bath room ok but two difficult steps if not too nimble. They may have a better one, worth the enquiry. Transport or very good walking shoes a must. Some of the most beautiful country close... More

We visited the pub twice during our holiday and both times the people were very friendly and welcoming, we even had the owners dog come and sit with us for a bit. There was a lovely open fire and the food was great, all cleared plates from us, and it was well priced. We will definately visit again.

Having travelled to this part of the country for quite a few years with a group of friends, I was looking for a good spot for a few ales, good crack and a comfy bed to rest our weary bones after a rigorous day in the beautiful Welsh countryside. What a find! The Penrhos was recommended to me and I... More

I stayed here with a group of friends for three nights. The food was excellent, great choice of meals and breakfasts cooked to order. We were made to feel very welcome - the bar is obviously the social point of the village and was well used by the locals. If you want to stay in the countryside in a home-from-home... More

Staying locally in a tree house retreat this was recommended as a nice change from self catering so we popped down on our last evening. I couldn't have been happier. The staff were lovely and talkative without being intrusive. I ordered the Porter house steak from the specials board with chips. It was fantastic, steak done exactly as I'd asked... More

Staying locally, and having been turfed out of our cosy cottage on a late October Saturday night so that the ladies could watch The X-Factor undisturbed, my friend and I took the short walk to the Penrhos Arms in Cemmaes. I have visited several times over a period of 4-5 years and was interested to find out what this particular... More

We stopped here for our lunch on the way to Barmouth, but gave it a wide berth on the way home! There were locals in the bar who seemed to be at the least unwelcoming and the food was not of a particularly high standard. One of the meals did not come as ordered and the pork on the other... More

Staff very friendly and helpful Food could be better and is expensive for what it is. Room 3 was cold and dimly lit. Room 3 has no soundproofing and you can a lot of noise from the bar below I would suggest that you employ a specialist acoustics engineer such as Penisular Acoustics Did note that extractor fan was still...

Nice rooms and reasonable value. However, room I was in quite noisy. I was woken up at around 2am Sunday morning from noise in the bar downstairs and I was wearing ear plugs! Assume that there was some kind of 'private' party going on.... This wasn't ideal as I had a sporting event to compete in the following day -... More
