“Beautiful venue, very nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I went here for Sunday lunch with my family. The venue and the setting are both beautiful, the dining room/conservatory is lovely and it backs on to a really nice garden with views of the beach. The service was also faultless, with a lot of friendly and capable staff.

Sunday lunch was £17.50 for two courses and £22.50 for three. Both included a ticket to Portmeirion itself which is actually very good value. The food was nice, very good roast meat and generous portions, well worth a visit.

“Lovely food in lovely surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We've eaten at the Portmeirion hotel in the village, and at its best it can be superb, but have never tried its sister hotel just outside the village. It's an imposing building and the interior is amazing. The lunch menu was varied and very reasonably priced, and the service was first class. The food when it arrived was all that we could have hoped for, and the portions were generous. Our fellow diners all commented favourably on their food. And as a bonus, the price of a two course lunch ( our bill came to £28 ) gets you into the village ( normal admission £10 each ) for free, and if you visit Clough Williams Ellis family home at Plas Brondanw ( lovely gardens, views and cafe ) you get in for £2 instead of £4. Almost the legendary free lunch.

“Lovely setting, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

The views from the windows are equaled by the menu and the service. If you have a two course lunch here, you also get complimentary tickets to Portmeirion and there is a free minibus to drop you at the entrance.

“Nice atmosphere disappointing food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

The atmosphere here is relaxed and pleasant but the meal was disappointing. The choice is limited and the food was less than enjoyable with the strong flavours of the accompaniments drowning the main item. The chef here is definitely inferior to the one at the Portmeirion Hotel.
