“A lovely lunch but....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We were eager to return to The White Eagle having really enjoyed our last visit last Autumn. The food and service certainly didn't disappoint. The standards were just as high as they were on our last visit. The only difference I could comment on was the general look of the place, in particular the high stack of half a dozen highchairs in our line of vision. We couldn't understand why these were given such a central position in the restaurant area as looking around we saw a number of nooks in which they could have been stored. Child friendly is great but when dogs have to sit out of the way in the snug - can't really understand this, by the way - we think that it shouldn't be overplayed.

“Great atmosphere and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

It is not easy to find good food in Wales. The White Eagle is a real marvel in the middle of nowhere (well, there is a nice beach nearby). We went there twice on a trip to Anglesey after looking for shelter due to to heavy rain - and then spent a good part of the afternoon there.
We liked the food and atmosphere, the waiters were quick; only when you enter you feel a bit left alone as you are not greeted nor seated.

“Fantastic in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We visited here on recommendation whilst staying across at Llangefni. We were only going to eat there for one night and were then going to eat at our hotel on the second evening, however we enjoyed our meal so much we went back and ate at the White Eagle on both nights! You really shouldnt miss this pub... really excellent service [there are lots of staff!] and amazing food!! Enough said!

“Simply the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Enjoying a great meal with family and friends should be one of life's pleasures. I can say with certainty that every time we visit the White Eagle, it is a real pleasure! The warm welcome by the staff, the fabulous menu (always cooked to perfection), the stunning views over Rhoscolyn bay and the wonderful wine list all conspire to draw us back there time and time again.
Well done White Eagle, keep up the good work. I look forward to parting with much of my hard earned money with you once again this year!!

“very poor food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

went on sarurday with some friends, the food was mostly inedible. The White Eagle had been recommended by a friend who has eaten there a number of times. She would have been very disappointed with the food on saturday. However the staff were pleasant and tried to be helpful, albeit the food was delayed
