The Ty Gwen is worth stopping at. This very old building houses a gourmet restaurant. The food was excellent, the service good and prices were average for what you got and the atmosphere was great.

This inn is a little out of town, and when I walked there to check it out in the afternoon, I said that it had to be very special to warrant getting in the car or walking there in the dark. It was! I can't think that we have been anywhere quite as atmospheric for a long time. It is... More

of the 3 recommended restaurants recommended The Ty Gwyn was easily the best, a full & varied menu, excellent cooking & decent wine list left this head & shoulders above the competition.

Stopped off here on the way home after a cracking weekend walking in Snowdonia. This is a real old pub with lots of character, the menu choices are extensive, varied and reasonably priced. We had the "posh fish and chips" which were very nice, the use of smoked fish in the batter worked well and provided a very different, but... More

WOW! Loved it. All food is cooked to order and uses locally sourced ingredients. Both of us enjoyed the 3 courses we had and didn't cost heavily on the pocket.

This is the best meal I think we have ever had! We had the seafood gratin - it was truly scrumptious - packed with huge chunks of fish and seafood. The vegetables were cooked to perfection, full of flavour with just the right amount of crunch! Excellent service, even though they were really busy and a lovely atmosphere. You do... More

Stunning food, lovely place... Hidden gem, that by the look of how busy they are, it's no secret! Beautiful old, coaching inn. Loads character. Eating is more relaxed in the bar. But formal eating room has a great atmosphere too.

This old coaching house was just perfect. The food was spot on and the service was very friendly. The Lamb is a must.

During our 4 day stay in North Wales, we found the Ty Y Gwyn restaurant to be by far the best dining experience. The menu is extensive & the food deliciously cooked. The service is friendly & prices good value. The restaurant is steeped with history & my only criticism would be that the chair I was sitting on wasn't... More
