“A nice quiet evening for us in there.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

A big pot of tea for me and the chance for a talk. Nice low background music. Very busy in the day but after food service stops it was lovely.

“Brief,to the point,But we found better,so thanks.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

All things happen for a purpose,and when one door closes,another opens.So the fact at 4,45pm on a Tuesday afternoon,(yesterday)upon entering Llandudno,s London Pub,Upper Mostyn Street, (,we have eaten here often,on and off),the bar person informed us that there would be no food till 5.pm,the chef wasnt around,it seemed,it didnt phase us.Ok,it was a pain.Ok,we now no its best to avoid this venue at that time,so wont be back there at that time of day,and as,in the past,its not been a great venue to eat at,anyway,not bad,but not great,and as,due to the London not having a chef at 4.45pm on a Tuesday afternoon,and time,like life being too short to await the chef,s appearance,we left and discovered the SPLENDID Cooneys Irish Pub a couple of doors away,where a chef WAS present,and we found Cooneys utterly splendid,The London was not a venue we missed too much.But,as I say,we now know when NOT to go there!,

“Choose somewhere else !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

My wife and myself paid a visit to the London on a quiet Monday evening (7.20 pm) after reading the menu outside and seeing the sign that said "home cooked food" at the time there were about 20 other people in the pub and one member of staff behind the bar. We chose our meals and ordered and paid, we were not told of the waiting time, our meals finally arrived after 40 minutes,I chose the fish and it arrived deep fried to a very dark colour and almost to a crisp and chips were under cooked. My wife chose the Lamb and Leek Pie but could not detect any sign of leeks, it was quite obvious that all the food on offer was frozen or pre cooked so how could the get it so wrong, the table where we were sitting was the one nearest to the kitchen and all the time we were waiting we could hear constant arguing and bickering to the point where someone shouted take the ******** menus off the tables so at least we had some entertainment while we waited.
The only good thing about this place was a young man called Peter, he delivered food, cleaned tables served behind the bar and generally did everything else that was needed, I think that without him the place would have to close.
All in all there are many places to eat in Llandudno so do yourself a favour and CHOOSE SOMEWHERE ELSE.

“dissapointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We recently re visited after an excellent meal earlier in the year,what a let down the food can only be described as awfull.The fish was dry and the chips were like carboard.I genuinely hope this was just a one off on an off day.We may try again if we visit later in the year but if no improvement will complain (not something we do readily as it further spoils the occasion somewhat)

“Not one of the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

We tried The London Hotel for an evening meal expecting to find a similar experience to many other pub restaurants. There seemed to be only one member of staff on duty despite the place being quite busy. He was looking after the bar and also serving the meals and not surprisingly there was some waiting to be endured. When our meal arrived it was warm, not hot and clearly of the pre- cooked chilled variety. Edible was the only adjective I could use about it. This was a first visit and almost certainly the last.
