Great attentive reception on arrival. Offered a table where we could peruse our menu and have a drink before making a decision. Order taken, shown to our table in a Coservatory area, away from the bar. A marble topped table, real napkins, beautiful selection of breads and olives, with olive forks supplied. A first for us! I had an amazing... More

We ate here with friends, and I have no real complaints. The food was good, well presented and tasty. The desserts are over priced for what you get , however once again they are very nice. The staff are ok, not that attentive, but friendly enough. Not sure about cats in the dining area, however I don't mind dogs in... More

Both courses were... More

Really friendly, fantastic food (perhaps aiming for a star or two?), not over-expensive but not cheap. Starters - pigeon breast; partridge and pear; scallops; soup Mains - Ribeye steaks; duck breast; Sea Bass Desserts - cheeseboard for 4; pear delice; ice cream Highly recommended

The Kinmel Arms is back at the top of its game! I Highly recommend this restaurant for quality food, lovely friendly staff, amazing choice of wines and... More

Finally made the time to pay a visit to the Marble Church with friends and decided upon The Kinmel for lunch - a place I have been to a couple of times in the past and always enjoyed. Pleased to report that the standards of both food and service were as high as ever. The fish pie is to 'die... More
