Nice pubs and bars please!

Hi there, we are a married couple in our 40s and wondered if you could suggest some really nice bars/pubs for us to go to. Any with outside space/sea view?

We watched a family group on the promenade finding it extremely funny throwing bits of their sandwiches up for the gulls to catch............Then there were screams and tears as one of the little girls carried on eating her sandwich and a couple of gulls came swooping in to get it !

When we got fish & chips in Conway I sat with my head more or less inside the polystyrene carton eating them , the icecream experience scared me so much.

The seagulls in Llandudno and that part of the cost are the most agressive we have ever come across. That's because the stupid idiots that feed them have made them associate humans with food. If you feed them they're ok but if you don't they get very agressive and try to take it anyway. Last year I got a bag of doughnuts off their pier. I wasn't eating them, just carryng them back to the hotel and a seagull gouged a nasty wound into my head with its talons. It still hasn't properly healed 12 months later. In Colwyn Bay, the seagulls tried to take ice cream off a young boy, missed and gouged his eye out. His father has taken up falconry and regularly walks through Colwyn Bay with very big hawks scaring the seagulls away (sometimes visits LLandudno too and you should see the seagulls scatter).

So a message to those idiotic parents and tourists who ignore the "don't feed the gulls signs", it could be you or your kids loosing your eyes next time if you stupidly inist on feeding the gulls.

We have the same problem in Borth & Aberystwyth, people thinking it's nice to feed the cute gulls. If you ask them not to do it you just get told where to go.

I was visiting Exeter & Sidmouth in Devon last week, same thing there.

Would like to comment on the Albert Pub, which was recommended to me, not by the hotel where I was staying .. but other people.

I had high hopes, and indeed their price list reflects the 'high' part. I ordered prawn cocktail and scampi. The cocktail had those tiny, wormlike prawns with tired looking greenery, and a few slices of cherry tomatoes. The cocktail sauce was too much for the little wormy prawns, and moreover, very vinegary. Awful. Scampi was bog standard, very small portion, and the handcut chips were mainly burned, and tasted as if the cooking oil had been in use for too long. Horrible.

The lady who cleared my table was pleasant, but asked in a singsong fashion if all had been ok. I said yes, as I was tired and not ready for a discussion and also, if you clear away two almost full plates, then everything cannot be alright. The price was twenty pounds.

The Albert is substandard and over priced, and overhyped. I will not eat there again.

The kiosk in Deganwy has it's own listing so perhaps that's a better place to write a review than in an unrelated forum - tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g1077002…
