The girlfriend and I visited this pub a few times while staying in Colwyn Bay. We enjoyed the range of ales and beers and ate regularly. The food was the normal Wetherspoons menu but was nice, hot and came out quickly with friendly service. We were a little put off from the outside of the pub but the fact it used to be a cinema made it very grand inside with lovely decor. Would Return.

I’m happy to hear you enjoyed your food and the range of ales we had on sale during your visit. It’s always good to hear positive feedback from our customers. We are currently refurbishing the outside of the building and are on schedule to have everything done by the end of the month. Next time You’re in the area hopefully the new paint job and repairs to the building will make it look a lot more welcoming.

Good company cheap beer and good food. Been a few time for special events after work. Not too far to go for a pint and food after work.

Wetherspoons is a good place to be if you want to just go for a drink with friends or family. The food isn't really up to scratch. When I order the chicken tikka masala the rice is a bit hard and you can tell that they rush it. The naan bread is heard and the poppadum's aren't even cooked. On the other hand when it is a curry night on a Thursday that's a different story. They take more time making it and not rushing it. The drinks are good for your money because they have good deals. On the other hand I asked for a Bailey's and I was pretty disappointed how much I got for the price. I would suggest it but don't expect amazing results on the food. The staff are very nice.. There are a couple who never smile and act asif they don't want to be there but I just tend to ignore that.

A nice convenient location but disappointed to have such a limited menu on each visit due to a freezer failure. The service etc was good and the food provided fine and of course being Wetherspoons good value for money but maybe the freezer could have been sorted quickly? A good clean wouldn't have gone amiss either. We will revisit and review again soon.

Thank you for your recent review, firstly I would like to personally apologise for your disappointment. We haven’t had much luck with our walk in freezer recently, during the time of your visit the freezer had to be fixed twice as the first time it was fixed the compressor that was replaced also failed this caused us to be out of stock on certain items for a little longer than anticipated. Unfortunately with limited space to store items safely and to EHO standards we had to prioritise space for our most popular dishes. However I’m glad to hear that the service you received was good and the food that was available was enjoyable. Since your visit everything is back up and running so we hope you will visit us soon to try some of the items that were unavailable last time.

Splendid pub menu, reasonable prices, very good wines by the glass. A good break from the splendid beach and prom where you can walk all the way to Rhos on Sea for coffee shops and bijou stores.
