“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

The best food in town. Very nice old world pub in the centre of Llandudno. The steak and ale pie is to die for.

“Great homemade food in an old charm pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

What a wonderful little gem hidden on the back streets of Llandudno with lots of old charm. Have been here twice now within two weeks and the food and service is excellent. The staff are very friendly and accommodating and the menu has plenty of choice. The portions are large and you wont go hungry! The second time we took our 4 year old and 9 month old and the children's menu is great. My new favourite place in Llandudno!

“A real hidden gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We visited during a recent trip to Wales and having no idea where to eat in Llandudno we turned to tripadvisor and this place came up on the search.

I can honestly say we haven't had a better meal in a pub. The menu might be considered a little bit on the expensive side for some but this definitely isn't the frozen chips and frazzled burger you get in the chain pubs.

The pub itself is a cracking place, very homely and traditional looking right down to the rustic furniture. I agree with some other reviewers that getting a drink at the bar can be a bit tricky but it did strike me that one or two extra pairs of hands would make all the difference to the service.

The food itself was great - so much so that we actually went back later in the week on the route back from Conwy Castle. The scallop starter was perfect and the main courses were substantial but not too bulky. It's not a place I could manage 3 courses at which is a shame as the desserts I did see looked very appealing. Oh, and the lamb wellington was possibly the nicest thing I've ever had. Try it, it's fab!

I could only hope for somewhere as nice as this to go to locally. Even the toilets were clean and presentable which is always a good sign.

My tip would be not leaving it late to book a table for an evening - we saw a lot of disappointed people on Friday evening when they saw all the tables were full. If we ever venture back to Wales this place is definitely on my list of places to visit again.

“Excellent Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Monday night was full and that says a lot out of season. The food was excellent quality and reasonably priced. Pub grub at its best, good quality ingredients freshly cooked. Good selection of beers too. The décor was very much aimed at diners rather than traditional pub-goers and unless you can sit outside you will be surrounded by eaters. That's what we went for anyway so it wasn't a problem for us.
Overall, I think on the basis of food and value for money I am surprised it doesn't rank much higher on tripadvisor. Perhaps the staff behind the bar could be more welcoming?
