“Good food and good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We ate here as a large group on two nights. The food was good and the service was excellent even though the pub was busy on the first night, there was fair in the town. The staff looked after us well.

“Decent dinner - if you like traditional fayre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We called in here for dinner one damp n breezy evening whilst on a caravanning trip in Llanystumdwy, a village close to Criccieth where the Lion Hotel is situated.
It's a very traditional dining room and quite clearly caters for the 'coach holiday' traveller as when we asked for a table for 4, the waitress' first question was whether we were staying at the hotel. I think that's because there's a separate menu for non-residents.
We ordered the roast of the day and although it was an evening dinner, it could just as well been Sunday lunch but without the Yorkshires. The roast potatoes were glorious!
All in all it was very calm atmosphere and the service was very good. There was some light entertainment that evening in the form of a classical guitarist playing whilst we dined which was also very pleasant.
We also felt that it was good value for money.
