Night out with a friend

Good steak and chips at a reasonable price with good service. Recommend the pub for a good pint of beer as well.

Second visit to this quaint pub in Tregarth .... Visited last year whilst holiday-ing & just done the same again this year. Food was superb (again), hospitality was very friendly (again) & couldn't find any fault at all .... Please visit if you get chance it's very pleasant & excellent food

We were staying in B&B across the road from this pub (that's a different review!) so on the night we arrived we headed straight over to get an evening meal. When we ordered our drinks we asked if they were still serving food, they were, so we were offered a tab and shown to the dining room. Here we had... More

Typical pub food in a typical old pub--which was warm and welcoming. No problems with parking. Service was on the slow side and pretty average. There was plenty of food on each plate with lots of gravy--but underneath it was filling but average.

Didn't feel welcome here, food was ok but service average. Felt in the way near closing time, landlady's body language was folded arms waiting for us to leave half an hour before last orders!!

Very quaint pub, full of history, great surroundings, lovely food and service, worth a visit, if you are in the area, its a bit out of the way but there is a great B&B opposite if you want to stay nearby.

Ate as a family of 5 on Sunday tea time, nice friendly pub with a relaxed atmosphere. Good quality food with decent portion sizes. The Dragon Chicken was excellent, the childrens portions were perfect. If anything slightly over priced, but all in all we would recommend.

The Vaynol Arms, Pentir is a little gem of an old fashioned pub on the outskirts of Snowdonia National Park. We went there tonight for an end of holiday meal out and we were very happy with the food, and with the service. My partner went for the boar burger with Damsen jam, my little girl had the kids gammon... More
