Great food, friendly atmosphere

This is a great pub/ restaurant and brilliant if you are out with the dig and fancy lunch or a drink, as they are pet friendly and allowed dogs in the bar area. The lunch menu consists of sandwiches and main courses and all made fresh with great produce. The menu changes quite often which is nice... read more

This pub was recommended to us - and quite rightly so! We love old, country pubs (being city folks) so this was just perfect location and ticked all the right boxes. The menu is wonderful with so many exciting things to choose from, making it very difficult to choose indeed. I went for the pork belly and the roe deer.... More

The Kinmel Arms is a bit out of the way but well worth taking the trouble to visit . We would advise booking as it can get busy as you would expect with a place of this quality. You can relax and have a drink whilst they take your order then go to the restaurant to eat. There is a... More

The Kinmel Arms comprises a traditional pub, complete with log fires, oak and slate decor, and also a superb restaurant. The chef is imaginative, there is a regular change of 'specials', and the service friendly and welcoming. In addition, for those lucky enough to stay, there are individually designed and super-comfortable bedrooms. The location is rural, and very beautiful -... More

Had a very good night last night - great food and wine. I can see that some people might think that the portions are small but for us it was just fine. If you want big portions and cheap food this is not the place for you - Enochs Fish and Chips in Llandudno junction is where you need to... More

My wife & I have just returned from a very enjoyable 2 night stay at The Kinmel Arms. We had a very enjoyable, relaxing stay. Tim & Lynn are wonderful hosts. The ambience of the Dining Room in the conservatory is just right. We had an excellent evening meal on both evenings. I had a main of Roe Deer on... More

My Wife and I recently had a lovely lunch at the Kinmel Arms and the atmosphere, service and food which we always find to be very good. They serve excellent local ales as well as using locally sourced produce in the kitchen and appropriate to the seasons - starters of pigeon breast with parsnips and granola and partridge breast and...
