“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

my family all 14 of us booked a table during the Christmas break at the White Eagle, we arrive a little early for our 4 o'clock booking and the place was buzzing with customers. we were met by the manager Adrienne Owen and her colleque on arrival and she said our table was not quite ready which was fine, we got ourselves a drink and settled in to soak up the atmosphere. and soon we were shown to out table for our much anticipated meal. We all had different starters and different main courses, I had the Rare fillet as a starter it was perfection, for the main course I had the lamb loin , again it was a beautiful example of how good food should be cooked.I canvassed the opinion of all a my family from our 9 year old grand-daughter to her 66 year old grand-dad and all were of the same feeling that we had a near perfect meal from start to finish, we were looked after by number of staff and all were very friendly and very helpful, the 3white Eagle offers very good value for money. we only visit the eagle once or twice a year as we live so far away, but I do wish it was nearer as I would surely become a regular. 5 star + ..

“Always an enjoyable meal with a friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

We often eat out as a family and The White Eagle seems to be our favourite. The food is always good, the house wine is also good and the staff are always helpful and friendly. In my opinion a well run, well respected Bar/Restaurant. We live locally and cant wait to return for the New Years Eve celebration.

“Consistently excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Whether you visit in the sunshine and eat great food on the deck whilst admiring Gods beautiful creation in the shape of the Snowdonia mountain range, or sit in the snug with a warm fire and your dogs allowed in too (what a bonus) you cannot fail to be impressed by the service and food at this wonderfully pub.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Have eaten at this establishment on many occasions, yet again, this time was just as fantastic.
The staff are always plenty at hand, no matter how busy it is. As for the food, cannot praise it enough!! Always presented well, served piping hot, and cannot taste any fresher.
Luckily we live locally, but would still travel miles to eat here.

“Good food but confusing bill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

Called in here in October as part of a large group. The pub is done out very nicely, the food and service were equally good. The White Eagle appears to be one of only a handful of good quality pubs on Anglesey. For us however there was a let-down, the bill.

When this arrived, neither the food, nor the drinks bore much resemblance to what had been ordered. The drinks were different and all the food was labelled “Open Food”!

While no one in the group of 11 was feeling generous enough to pick up the tab, neither were we being so tedious as to work out exactly what each person owed. We simply wanted to do a cursory check to make sure that the bill was correct before paying. However, given what we had to go on, this proved impossible.

The bill was re-entered onto the system, hopefully I thought, to be printed in a more legible form, but sadly not. Again it came out with different drinks. Seemingly these were the same price but as the actual drinks ordered were not registered on the system, these couldn’t be selected. And again, ALL the food ordered came out as “Open Food” with multiplications of people’s orders resulting in a total cost. Because we hadn’t all shared the same number of courses, the only way the bill could be explained was for the relevant prices from the menu to be written down onto the waitress’s table orders. It was then down to us to compare the bill with table orders to see if everything married up.

Sadly this took the edge off what had been an enjoyable meal in pleasant surroundings. Surely the bill could be printed so as to better reflect what has been ordered. This is unlikely to be a problem for smaller groups, or where one of the diners is feeling unseasonably generous.

All that being said, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the White Eagle to anyone staying on, or visiting Anglesey in the future.
