Lovely place for good quality, locally sourced fresh food

Well worth a visit. Very modern interior but well designed. Staff/owners are attentive and friendly. Dog friendly too if that's your thing. Food was great and well above standard pub fayre. Glass by the wine is good standard too which for me is always a measure of overall quality.

We had a lovely meal here, beautifully presented. Staff were very attentive. Kept asking if we were ok for drinks. Nice to see a specials board. Portions were good. Only down side was that we opted not to have a starter so the main course took an hour to arrive so we were really hungry by then. Bookings seemed to... More

Service was very good but not over fussy. Great food, not your standard pub grub. Wish we had made the effort to book in a long time ago. Kids meal really good quality too. We will be back soon

Travelzoo vouchers purchased for circa £30 per couple entitled us to meals valued up to £52.40 and unlike many voucher venues we were able to pay the difference for higher priced meals. Surprisingly we could sit at any table and not have to sit in "Voucher Corner!" The food and service were excellent, the Perl Wen starter absolutely delicious and... More

The Black Lion is a beautiful pub on a stunning island and the food is heavenly. Having spent the day visiting 'old haunts' we came here for an early dinner just as it opened. Although we were first through the doors, many were followed us and it was easy to see why. The menu wasn't overly big which I love... More

I took my wife here for a meal having also paid for a Travel Zoo discount voucher and I can safely say we had an excellent experience. The food was 1st class and the service was second to none. The owner took time to come over and talk to us which was a nice touch. I would definitely look at... More

We had a fantastic Sunday lunch on Mothering Sunday at this restaurant. Both the lamb and beef were delicious and the service was great too. Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area looking for good food.

Thought we'd try here with the Travelzoo offer. Glad we did, food was great. In fact, be happy to pay full price so will definitely go back. Rump steak was perfectly cooked, chips, onion rings and sauces were perfect accompaniments. Another place to recommend for food on Anglesey.
