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

Having read some good reviews and staying just down the road whilst on holiday, we were looking forward to giving this pub a go. However we were disappointed. Many husband had T-bone steak from the specials, and I had Welsh lamb off the main menu. The steak was meant to be medium rare but was very rare and it was... More

Good food and friendly staff! We heard really good things before going, and we weren't disappointed. Really good choice of vegetarian food as well! Love the veggie "fish and chips" with halloumi idea. Would definitely return!

Really lovely pub/restaurant. Staff really friendly, great service, and good value for money. If we'd found it earlier, we'd have made better use of it on our holiday.

This establishment was recommended by a previous visitor who had stayed at our holiday accommodation. On arrival, dining was progressing at a number of tables and a group of 15 had just arrived. Despite a turnover of diners finishing and others arriving I found the experience here faultless. The staff were of a very high standard, extremely attentive, efficient and... More

Stayed in the B and B across the road so popped in for a quick drink. Robinsons Wizard and Unicorn were very tasty, staff must know how to keep the beer. Lots if people were eating, couldn't hear any complaints.
