Great pub with excellent location and garden amenities with stunning views. Beers and wines are exceptional and the food a wholesome gastronomic feast. The experience was that good we went back the next night. Found out they also do breakfasts, so tried that on the third day and was satisfied for a full day out in the stunning mountains. I... More

Wow what a difference a few months makes. Great to see one of Snowdonia's best pubs back to its best. I have visited the area many times over the past few years and always make a point of visiting this pub. The new owners are doing a fine job of keeping the best of the old and bringing in some...

We used to visit The Grapes many years ago when it was common to find queues of people waiting for the pub to open and the bar was always jam-packed. Over the past few years we have watched different people come and go, some good, some bad. When the hotel re-opened last month we went again with friends. We received... More

We went out for a fathers day evening meal and had a fantastic meal and drinks with very attentive service. The food came quickly and was piping hot and prepared just as we requested (steaks) no room for dessert! Would recommend this lovely place to all. Good luck to The Grapes for the future.

Came here on Saturday 18th with the intention of having lunch as we'd checked the website and it said the kitchen was re-opening. Unfortunately when we arrived we were told food was only going to be served in the evening. The bar area was open and friendly, as were the staff, just a shame about the misleading information on the... More

Six of us needed feeding and very few places serve food on Sunday evening. We were told of the grapes and they were able to fit us in after a busy father's day. They have recently re furbished and we were not disappointed by the restaurant. The food was varied and super. Staff were very attentive. They hope to have... More

We booked a holiday in a cottage in this village thinking the ?Grapes would be a great place to eat during our stay. This village doesn't have Nything else! The nearest shop is 3'miles away and take away 5'miles! Rumours say this place has closed,due to bankruptcy! Don't know!

Such a pity that this is closed now and no one responds to emails or phone. Used to be an excellent place for beer and food and a real pub! Seems that it is plagued with problems over the years. Great location and garden and given the shortage of good places to eat and drink locally this could thrive with... More
