It was 3.20pm and three of us needed something to eat. The chef was on his break but was happy to come down and cook for us. We had homemade crusty rolls with handmade chips and it was delicious. The open fire made it cosy, the information screen kept us well informed as did the weather reports and, the printed sheets for the 3 walks up Rydd Du. Would recommend and would certainly go back to sample more off the menu.

We had two meals over two days and both times staff were very friendly and the food was excellent! Would highly recommend it after a long day hiking!

This pub was fantastic. We had a light lunch on the first day we arrived in the area. Lovely grub. Then after we'd hiked up Snowdon we came back for dinner and drinks. Brilliant. The 'Baked Snowdon' desert is a must have!!

We were a family group of 13 and when booking were asked to pre-order, so dropped of our choices the night before. When we ate there on the Saturday evening we all found the food to be very good with no-one getting a dissappointing dish.

Food not the best and was expensive - has no competition so can price high.
Very cramped.
Waited ages for food.
5 minutes after being given our dessert they asked us to leave the area/tables and to move into the other part (was too cramped staff couldn't move!) as they had another booking (well they shouldn't have lettuce waiting over an hour before serving us).
Otherwise it was fine.

Thank you for your review.
What you fail to mention is that you were part of a large group (approx 20 persons) and did arrive 1 hour early (6pm) for your tables.
We were able to seat your group straight away and we liaised with the leader of your group.
As your tables were re-booked for 9pm our choice was to start on your orders straight away but we were told by your group leader for the food to be served as per the booking at 7pm.
At 8.45pm, after all sweets had finished, I advised your team leader that we would shortly need your group to vacate their tables ready for the following booking.
Unfortunately, due to the size of your group, there were not enough vacant tables in the two lounges to seat everyone.
As your group travelled over 1 mile to Cwellyn Arms your comment regarding “no competition” is ridiculous as there is a choice of up to 8 Hotels and Restaurants within a five mile radius.
