We visited the Brondanw Arms a couple of times whilst on holiday. The service was always friendly and thoroughly efficient and the food and ale were top-notch. Well worth a visit and even worth going out of your way for a meal out.

Excellent food in a historic pub. Cosy in the winter. Outside dining in the summer. Local ales and views of Cnicht and Snowdon on a clear day.

Have visited many times over the past two years and always find the hospitality and food to be of a very high standard.

The food is wonderfully prepared and presented using fresh local ingredients. There is a well stocked bar and the the owners are friendly and will go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy your visit - the very best gastro-pub in the region!
