We've eaten here a few times and it never fails to disappoint. The early bird menu is great value - so many vegetables and potatoes! The staff are polite and welcoming, the surroundings lovely. Would highly recommend.

We visited Watsons for a family birthday celebration. I didn't know it existed but I am so glad I found it and will definately be visiting again when I am next in the area. There were 15 of us and had pre-ordered some of the meals. All of the food came out together and was piping hot. Excellent menu, good... More

Had the free range chicken, the best chicken we've ever tasted, fabulous. Lovely friendly staff but unfortunately the service was very poor and it was quiet at the time of our visit, such a shame.

We've dined at Watsons' Bistro over three times now and on each occasion have been served top quality food. Faultless presentation with finishing touches that really are sublime. Well done Chef!

visited on good Friday for the lunchtime deal. Soup was great, fish and chips were excellent. 2 x courses for £11.00 cannot be beaten. Atmosphere is nice, staff are always very pleasent and the servive is always good. This place is No1 in Conwy on Trip advisor and rightly so. We visit there around 5 or asix times a year... More
