“Busy Place”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

First visit to this pub although passed by a few times. Always seems very busy as it was when our party of 8 called in,so had a while to wait after ordering at the bar. Quite a good choice on the menu and all the meals were thoroughly enjoyed by all of us but some items were a little expensive,especially the wine and coffee. would recommend this place and would go again.

“What a find ! lovely pub, friendly helpful staff and great food”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We went here en route to a walk around the lake. Parking is great and as its in the centre of Trefriw its easy to find. The staff were very welcoming - lovely selection of hot and cold food which was home made and tasted fab. Fish pie was delicious - childrens food was tasty too. My partner said the lambs liver was very good too. The real fires give the place a cosy feel and outside there are tables on the grass for those wanting a drink by the river. Staff were helpful giving us advice and directions for our walk. Would definitely recommend and will be going back.

“Consistent high standards”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Not normally given to entering reviews but feel compelled to record that having frequented this establishment for a number of years during trips to North wales, I have yet to find a more "consistently" high quality establishment for food,drink and ambience anywhere on my travels.
Not sure when the most recent management took over but yet to have a sub-standard experience since their arrival
