Description: This was our favorite pub on our recent two week trip to London and Wales. It had our favorite meal and favorite ale. The new owners are wonderful. This is NOT the same Ty Gwyn Hotel that is already listed on Trip Advisor. (Ty Gwyn is a popular Welsh name.) Rowen is a very small town, though in a wonderfully scenic tourist area of Wales in Snowdonia National Park.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Called for two evenings and wasn't disappointed. Service is excellent, food is excellent and the locals are friendly.
The singing on a Friday is brilliant, but the Saturday entertainment was not good. In fact he was so bad as to be entertaining.

“Love this pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Visited this lovely pub back in May 2013 and had their fish and chips they were the best we have tasted in a long time ,as we live in Cornwall thats a good recommendation , the pub was very clean and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, so much so that we are staying near Rowen at Christmas and have booked in for their Christmas Day lunch.
Cant wait to return

“Wish this was our local!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

We stayed close by (Cae Wennol Yurts) an ate here twice, to avoid cooking and washing up on a short break! First time was bank holiday Monday, and although arriving to a full place, Lisa made sure we were served quickly, and food arrived within half an hour of ordering. Meals were well presented and really tasty, and waitress, Hannah, landlady Lisa, and landlord were friendly and helpful, despite the huge number of visitors. Second visit, last night, was just the same great service and food, but much calmer and quieter, being midweek. Kids meals were same good quality as the adult meals, and kids felt relaxed and welcome too. Lovely location, friendly locals, and great spot to eat out! We will be back when in the area again someday! :-)

“FABULOUS COUNTRY PUB”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Visited the Ty Gwyn on a Friday and stayed the night. What an unbelievable atmosphere! The pub was absolutely buzzing with wonderful Welsh singing preceeded by a lovely meal.
The licensee, his wife and daughter are really nice people and very welcoming. The accommodation is very comfortable and clean although not en-suite. A really special place to visit, especially on a Friday night. What an eye-opener!
