My main meal was the cheesey chicken, garlic roasties and chips, naughty but very nice. My wife had the lamb in mint sauce gravy, the lamb was as tender and falling off... More

Some mornings you just need a Full English (or Welsh) and this is the place to go. Food freshly cooked to order and super value, The temptation to have fried bread and toast is too much.

Organised a Christmas party at Jakes on 6th December. This is the second time I have booked a large party here at christmas time. We arrived and they were ready to serve us once we were seated. The food arrived hot and I had a lovely home made veg soup. The turkey dinner arrived after a short wait. We bought... More

It’s a little bistro within the Caernarfon Castle walls and is very cosy and romantic. It is extremely well priced for the quality of the food and it is... More
