“It ticks all our boxes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Popped up from nearby Cadair View Lodge for a recce and a lovely pint of real ale and top up the email with the wifi which was readily made available.

Recce proved excellent with the friendly reception and promising menu so we visited again for a delicious meal. That proved the winner for us so we booked the Sunday carvery and thoroughly enjoyed it.

This pub is run by a lovely team and staff who make you very welcome. Service was top notch, meals were brilliant and the real ale was spot on.

We'll be back!

Stayed in the Rhiw Goch cottage for 2 nights. We were the first guests living in the cottage - all was brand new - the kitchen, the furniture, the line etc. The Owner (Mr. Riley) is just amazing - doing everything himself (buying all the stuff for the cottage, serving breakfast to the guests, bringing flowers etc. ) and so positive all the time, all charm and smiles! We liked him a lot!
The cottage is not big but very roomy (3 bedrooms, 2 of which have 2-level beds, so 11 people can sleep there quite comfy! ideal for families with chidren). The living room has got 2 leather sofas, an armchair, a table, a fire place, a TV-set, a stand lamp; the kitchen is fully equiped with all kinds of dishware, there is a dish-washing machine, a fridge, an oven etc. The bathroom has a shower and a bath (and a window with am amazing view!)

Breakfast is served in the Rhiw Goch Bar and includes cereals, toasts and cooked English breakfast (potatoes, tomatoes, sausages, mashrooms, eggs..)

The location is great - hills and sheep all around, all quite and green and sunny and just peacefull and beautiful! a very relaxing countryside place.

Loved the place, the owner, the service.

During our 3 night stay a Cae Gwyn Farm just down the road, we ate at the pub/restaurant 2 out of the three nights. The first night it was just my partner and I, I was very impressed with the amount of choice on the menu in the vegetarian section, more than I have seen in most places. We were also impressed with the number of specials chalked up on the walls, starters, mains and puddings.
The second evening we ate there we were joined by 4 others, who were all equally impressed with the variety, portions and quality of the meals. The waitresses were very helpful and friendly, I couldn't fault their service. The speed of the preparation of the meals was spot on also!
We also stayed around after the meals and had a few drinks and played pool and table football in the games room which was good fun, the pub was lively and friendly and had a fun atmosphere. The added bonus was that when we mentioned we were staying at cae Gwyn we received a 10% discount off our total bill, brilliant stuff!!

7 of us ranging between age 46 down to 7 dined here 3 times during our weeks stay at the holiday village.

the service was excellent, staff were always friendly and helpful. and we never waited long for our food.

on the whole the food was good except for very undercooked veg on the roast dinner. the portions were huge and we only managed to make it to desert once! the children really enjoyed their meals.

the only downside really was the prices. a bit steep for what is basically pub food.

We ate at The Rhiw Goch Inn when we stayed in Snowdonia with Cadair View Lodge.The place is ideal, just a short walk up the hill from the log cabins... though mind your ankles on the cattle grids on your way back down!The place dates back to the 16h Century and has an amazing history (thanks Cadair View Lodge website for filling us in beforehand) and is even the birth place of a saint.Food is good pub grub... loved the steak and ale pie. Place hasn't been "done over" as so many places our way have. It's neat and tidy and comfortable. It was very busy during our stay (over New Year) but the staff were still friendly and helpful.Tried to get a table each time by the big open fire (not always sucessful) not that it was cold but it just added to the atmosphere.Will definitely eat here again when we come back to stay.

Stayed in aLog cabing for the weekend and we went here for our meals. All the staff were fantastic and they even provided water for our dog. There was a roaring log fire which made it feel so snug. The food was excellent and average prices.
Would go back again!!!!
