We were recommended the Vaynol Arms by our hosts at Hendy Felin. The pub was what I would term a traditional country pub. The menu was good and the food was wholesome and tasty. The staff were very friendly and welcoming

While staying at the fantastic B&B, Plas Tirion, across the street, Michelle made dinner reservations for us before we left the States. The nightly special roast plates seemed to be the nicest. The Lamb Shoulder was very tender, tasty, and plentiful. My wife's beef plate was similar. Owner Karen and her staff were good about checking to make certain we... More

This is a nice friendly pub serving huge portions! I had the deep fiend Halloumi which I didn't like but that's my personal taste and nothing to do with the way it was cooked. The waitress even came back after she had cleared our plates to make sure the food was Ok as they had obviously noticed I had left... More

Whilst staying in Bethesda was looking for a near pub for meals & drinks that was dog friendly. Already hungry, we rang to see if food could be served in the public bar as we had the dog. Yes was the response and we were there half an hour later. A table had been set for us in the public... More

The pub has very kind waiters. I liked the fact we didn't have to make any reservation. We enjoyed the food, tasty and value for money

The staff were welcoming and obliging. The food was tasty - especially the chips which were crisp on the outside and lovely, fluffy potato on the inside. It was a reasonable price in relation to what we had and a far better alternative to our motel's on-site Little Chef. A very pleasant evening

Staying nearby we were recommended to The Vaynol Arms and went three consecutive evenings. The first two we had some very good food, but on the third, 'Steak Night' it was very poor indeed. To look at the positives we had fish the first two nights, sea bass was excellent, the sweet chilli salmon likewise and a venison chilli pate... More
