Pub in walking distance from Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens? (8 Replies)
Hi. I've been told there's a pub in about 10 minutes walking distance from the Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens, but I can't find it on the Google Maps. Is there a pub? If yes, what is its name? Is it a real ale pub? Any recommendations on ales/ciders, foods? Any comments/reflections are highly appreciated. Thank you very much. Yuri.

Menai Bridge town centre is easy walking distance from Plas Cadnant. The absolute nearest pub is the Bulkeley Arms. Within 200 metres there's also the Victoria Hotel, the Auckland Arms and the Liverpool Arms. Two minutes away the Anglesey Arms and Tafarn Y Bont. Dunno if the Mostyn Arms is still trading. Most of these...More
