Description: Welcome to Characters Teahouse and Hot Stone Restaurant. A secret to be found. Tucked away in a side street we are not easy to find. But when you do you are in for a big surprise. We are different to say the least..You could say quirky and you would be right. Old second hand china, cups, saucers, plates, glasses, furniture etc all bought from charity shops and completely mismatched giving the place character and ambiance hence the name Characters. Food is wholesome and unpretentious ,soups, sandwiches, hand made cakes & scones of different flavours forming the basis of our now famous Afternoon Tea. Accompanied by proper loose leaf tea & coffee of your choice we are open daytime 11am to 4pm Monday to Saturday. In the evening Friday & Saturday serving from 6.30pm to 8.00pm our also famous "Steak on the Stone" Accompanied by "Bring your Own" wine, beer or champagne. Whenever you decide to visit you will be greeted with a big welcome from the staff & management of this lovely family run restaurant..hopefully see you soon. Characters Team

Visited this tea room last July and just checking on here to see if it was open this year and so pleased to see that it is. We plan to go back as it really added to the enjoyment of our holiday last year. Lovely staff, warm and welcoming atmosphere. Afternoon tea that was better than anywhere I have been and I have been to all the prestigious around the country, tasty, fresh and a nice mix of traditional and quirky crockery. Left with a big smile and told our friends who went later that day and also thought it was really nice. Two thumbs up and really looking forward to next time!!

We were advised at our B & B to try this place. Nested in a side street of Llandudno we found a superb Cafe/Restaurant, and we had coffee there, planning lunch later somewhere else. Toured the town, but returned to Characters for Lunch. I had the 'Scouse Lob' never had it before. Like a lobby, and with the cold weather it was perfect, flavors and everything superb. Partner had offer of Sandwich & Soup (Brocoli & Stilton soup with turkey & Cranberry sandwich), just such good quality food, served by such friendly, knowlegeable and helpful staff. Lots of decor to check out whilst dining. If you go in the evening at weekends, everyone mentions their food/cuisine. Best in town easily. We will be back for sure...

Went to Characters on a Saturday night and can honestly say I have never eaten food like it before!!!! The service was fantastic and we didnt feel rushed to eat up and get out. The steak on a stone was fabulous and I will definately go back for more. Its a very unique little place which is a breath of fresh air from the same old thing that Llandudno has to offer. Looking forward to our next visit already :-))))

Called on last Friday night, after reading reviews on Trip advisor, what an amazing place; service - we were greeted outside and offered a choice of steaks or fish and advised that we could get some wine from Sainsburys 2 mins away (it is BYO); inside was a wonderful, large tables and very individual décor an ornaments; service again first class with happy staff; the fillet steak on stone was probably the best steak I have had and a wonderful experience cooking yourself.

Thank you for this first class experience.
