Booking in advanced advised.
Sep 2021
We have been going to Afonwen for about 20 years, during that time we have always had great meals. Today we had an exceptional one. (24.09.21).
Every table was booked and by 12.45 the café was full. Sometimes there is slow service, but today it was fully staffed, and no one appeared to have waited longer than expected for their meals. Tip, try the tiramisu it's exceptional. Portions can be generous, but some of the items can be downsized if you request this. All in all a very enjoyable meal.
The antique side has been updated and there is plenty of room now to observe covid restrictions. It was noted that like many other stores 45% of customers don't know what 2metres is!

Very unpleasant
Sep 2021
We arrived on time but it was approx. 20 mins before our order was taken. The drinks arrived 65 minutes after we arrived followed shortly by the food. No explanations were offered for the delay. My order was for roasted seasonal veg with fresh tomato and basil sauce with pasta and torn basil. My first bite felt as though a pepper pot had been emptied onto it! There were 4 small tomatoes, some peas and 2 small mushrooms with a few pieces of lightly cooked onion - hardly what was offered on the menu. Several peppercorns burst in my mouth which was extremely unpleasant. I was offered another meal but it would have meant my friends waiting for me, possibly another hour!! Very disappointing meal and very slow service especially as people who came in after us were served before us.

I am very sorry to read that you have chosen to share your thoughts on your visit with us, it is especially disappointing as I had apologised and you had been offered an alternative dish that would be cooked from fresh with speed. We had also removed your meal from the bill. The day you visited was a very busy day and although we try to stagger our table bookings sometimes things go wrong and guests arrive early and some late. This of course has an effect on service and cooking. We take much pride in all we do and have continues with our covid measures to maintain as much safety as possible. I am not quite sure I agree with your timings, however all I can say is that the whole team was working as hard as we could on a very busy day and I apologise if we fell short when you visited. I once again can only apologise that your meal was not as you had expected and that the crushed peppercorns in it had caused you a problem. I was sorry that you hadn't allowed us prepare another meal for you on the day, this of course would have received priority and would have been prepared immediately giving you another dish as fast as it could be cooked. On the day one of our team had apologised and tried to encourage you to let us change the dish and I had been to see you as well, again apologising. I am very sad you felt the need on the day to be quite so unpleasant, I appreciate your disappointment but to threaten to write an unpleasant review (to which we can not stop you) when we have done all we can to rectify the situation feels a little unfair. I can assure you we will continue to work hard and try to give our very best service and freshly cooked foods to all that visit us. Thankfully over the 30 years we have now been open I am proud to say we work as a team and always try to do our best for every person that visits us.

Expected better
Sep 2021 • Solo
I had not booked but was accommodated quickly… I expressly advised I was following a Keto diet, the food took an age to come - longer than the length of time to cook. Despite advising Keto diet my salad contained Carrot Grape and Oranges?? This was removed by myself. My burgers were the driest I have ever had.. I had to ask for salad dressing to combat this with a dry burger. I was never asked if everything was ok (as it was not.) I paid and left extremely dissatisfied as I had eaten there previously.. I won’t return.

This is a lovely place to visit, with lots of lovely antiques , crafts and gifts to look at and/or buy. Also a really nice restaurant and outdoor eating area. We returned twice in the week

Should have a mention of a cafe/restaurant in its title.
Jul 2021
A well-presented set of antiques. Unfortunately many were typical of items we had moved on recently and our interest was looking for a piece of furniture. Bad news out of the way; we also stopped and had something to eat. What a joy. A nicely presented tasty meal that was sensibly priced. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is quiet and we were able to eat outside and enjoy the good weather.

Very nice food. Had coronation chicken sandwich, very tasty, with a lovely side salad and coleslaw. Chips were delicious. Staff very welcoming. Not many antiques and I thought very overpriced.lovely to sit outside by the river.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere, attentive service and tasty food. It was what we expected - sitting by the river in the shade watching the world go by…

Can’t think of a better breakfast in North Wales…
May 2021 • Couples
This was the first time back since last summer and we had really missed it.

The return trip didn’t disappoint.

This is the best breakfast for miles and miles - can’t actually think of a better one in North Wales.

Local farm-produced ingredients, consistently excellently cooked and always friendly service.

The cakes are always ridiculously good and we took some tiramisu as takeaway.

They have extended the outside area now although we ate inside.

Looking forward to going back again soon.

A nice place but underwhelming on the antiques side.
Jun 2021 • Couples
We travelled an hour to get here and couldn’t help but be a little underwhelmed. The website boasts one of the largest antique collections in North wales but there didn’t seem to be an awful lot there in our opinion.
I would say that what was there was well presented and clearly priced but we spent probably about 20mins browsing and were done.
The gift shop has some lovely items, we didn’t stay to eat but the restaurant looked inviting, everywhere was very clean (including the toilets) and covid measures were all in place. Most of the staff acknowledged us in a friendly manner.
If we were passing we would pop in again but most likely wouldn’t make a special visit for antique hunting.
