Been a few times lat year but this was our first visit in 2016 . You need to book in advance as it does get very busy . Good choice of main meals usually with a twist .

Basic but friendly

Called in for a quick drink one Saturday lunchtime, a pretty basic pub however with some really nice features inside and welcoming staff.

A really traditional local pub with good service. Would be even better if they served hot & other drinks for the ladies.

From reading the first review, I had to wonder if this was the same place. It’s in a perfect location on Rose Hill just obliquely opposite the Conwy Visitor Centre and Art Gallery and the bus stop.

It looked more like a house from the outside (perhaps it was back in the day) and the entry and inside rooms felt like it too which made it ‘homey’. It was virtually empty when we visited except for 1 patron at the bar. Being after 4pm in a busy tourist town, we thought it abit unusual for this time of day.

It really is an old-fashioned pub. My husband ordered a pint of beer and being ‘tea-time’, I fancied just a cup of tea. Unfortunately, they did not do hot drinks.

It may be a traditional pub but certainly even old-fashioned ones need to move with the times and offer an array of refreshments for both ladies and gentlemen who may not only want only alcohol. I settled for a bottled juice instead which at least they did have.

There were only a few tables and stools and the ambience just lacking of course mainly because it was empty. It was a quiet space though to write a few postcards while having a drink and convenient to catch the City Sightseeing bus just opposite the pub when we finished.

This place really is nothing special but could become a popular place with just a few tweaks and upgrades, starting with their beverage offerings.

Good evening one and all, its moi- Sonny Ingrid. Sit down, take that ice cube out your mouth and and let me regale moments of local splendor.

Where to begin... I was on a hot date with my bit of fancy and obviously the one place I definitely wanted to visit was 'The Malt Loaf'. There was no way this would be my last choice. I had heard nothing but rave reviews biggin' up this quaint little family friendly pub in the heart of medieval Conwy. This pub is so home away from home that it reminds you of someone's back room.

After entering, I went straight to the bar, ordered and bottle of goodness and an ice cube in a glass (with just a touch of coke). Once receiving our drinks from the ever so lovely barman, we went to sit down near the dart board. I assume this place has played host to many a legend of the darts, as they proudly display the achievements of such legends.

At times we didn't feel in necessary to start up out own conversation because the locals were so friendly that they like to ensure we heard all that they were talking about. It seemed that a lovely lady had just enjoyed an afternoon of drinking moderately with her high brow friends.

The sweet-cheeked man I was with paid a visit to the toilets and upon his return he said nothing but good things. He said they were so clean but was surprised that they contained no urinals. During his visit, I was clocked by one of the local gentlemen who caught my gaze through the finely placed mirrors decorating the place. Man was he too good. I almost feel like saying he was a big fish in a small pond but he was more like a big bottle in a small girl.

Not being a local to conwy, I wasn't sure whether I would be accepted among such astute company, however one of the locals approved of me by giving me the thumbs up. It was at this point when I new I was welcome in such an establishment.

If there's one place in the whole of conwy that can outdo the Liverpool Arms, it is this place. I had realised that Conwy is a popular place for fisherman, but this pub is certainly a good place if you like seamen.

Again I would give this place 5 pin stripes out of 5.
