I went here with my wife and two children and my brother and his wife. Both of them are keen mountain goers and this is the place to meet up before and after you tackle Snowdon apparently. The place is big inside, fairly basic but real friendly. Every inch of the place is either photos, a wall fall full of community postings or books for charity. Then there is the menu, a whole wall of chalkboard.
My brother is vegetarian and his wife isn't, but both well catered for. A lot of climbing type places can get a bit hippy and you end up with some foul lentil and tofu crap put in front of you. No worries here as the choice is really there. Think a combination of homemade, greasy spoon and bistro type simple dishes. They are licensed so you can have a bottle of some decent local beers or ciders to go with your food or stick to tea, coffee and soft drinks.
The children were well looked after with kid-size pizzas and chicken nuggets, but no surprises there. The real treat was the quality of something simple like fried egg on toast or even really well cooked homemade chips. After a day of walking around in what has got to be one of the coldest places around, it is near the mountains and all that, my hands looked like they belonged to a cyanotic smurf. A good mug of tea and a decent breakfast was all that was needed.
Next time I pop over to Wales to see the family, it's a definite re-visit.
Thanks guys :)
