We booked Sunday lunch for the family unfortunately it was more than a little disappointing. The food especially the gravy was tasteless, the roast potatoes looked like leftovers, they were greasy and rubbery not good at all. The service was ok, just one waitress serving a full pub but she was polite and there were no delays in serving the... More

We seemed to arrive just before the evening rush. Hubby had mixed grill. So much meat. A real feast. I enjoyed juicy gammon, egg, chips and peas. I ordered mushrooms but there were some already on the dish. Still I enjoyed the extras. Will try and go another evening the food was very good.

My and partner and I visited the Vaynol Arms after walking up Snowdon. We had passed earlier in the day and though it look like a nice pub. There was plenty of choice on the menu, I had a steak and kidney pudding and my partner had steak and ale pie. When our food arrived we certainly weren't disappointed! The... More

Chose this pub as the local pub to Pant Teg B&B doesn't serve food and we weren't disappointed. It has a lovely homely feel to it. They were very busy even though it was a Monday night, but they still seated us straight away in a quiet corner, which is just what we were after following a full day on... More
