Description: Watkins Co restaurant in Llandudno is an equation that comes out right every time. Take an award-winning restaurant, set it in one of Llandudno���s top hotels, create an historic Victorian dining stuffed with formal elegance, add in an inventive chef with a dab hand at classic favourites and it���s elementary -- Watkins is a hit. Half the menu is seasonal, locally-sourced a la carte deliciousness, while the other half is a daily-changing table d���hote menu offering excellent value. People love the home-made lasagne and the daily roast, but we recommend the more inventive creations, too. Watkins Co���s service, impressive children���s menu and a pocket-friendly wine list get top marks.

Cold fish cakes, cold, hard chips, fatty batter and poor fish. Mushy peas were ok. chocolate meringue roulade was much too sweet, may as well have eaten a bowl of sugar lumps!

3 course sunday lunch for 14 per head in art deco restaurant with harpist playing - a joy!
The food was good & wine list was very well priced.
Our service was a bit rushed - not sure if down to large party expected or usual experience

Lots of regulars were greeted warmly by staff & owner

Upon entering the hotel we were none too impressed by the absence of bar staff or, for that matter, the selection of drinks when the barman eventually arrived (after a long wait), but the restaurant staff were pleasant enough and the food, although not outstanding, was fairly ok. I didn't like the subdued swimming poolside lighting one bit but, as Llandudno is a bit of a culinary desert, it was acceptable and reasonably priced.
