Lovely hotel,very obliging when we arrived taking coats,getting initial drinks etc. Trying to pick a slimming world best option, I went for the piri piri chicken supreme which came with roasted sweet corn and rice - perfect!! The waiter said good luck and warned me that I was brave as the sauce had a kick to it. That’s fine as I like a bit of spice. However,it was inedible and so fiery that my lips were burning. I told the waitress who said I should have said earlier as they could have changed it. She was not very pleasant. A discussion ensued in the kitchen which we could see from out seats and the chef was ‘ being told’. If the kitchen knew his hand had slipped when making the sauce, they should have taken it off the menu. The chicken was cooked well and was delicious but the sweet corn was not roasted and all was covered in the sauce. I was cross with mysel& for ordering it as it spoilt my evening. My friends were all happy with their meals. When we asked,they deducted the two orders from the bill so all ended okay.

Thank you for taking the time to review Y branwen.
I’m sorry that we didn’t meet your expectations on this occasion.
When you ordered the piri piri chicken, my staff informed you that this was a very hot dish.
During the service my restaurant manager checked on your table and you said everything was ok.
I’m sorry that you found our piri piri sauce too hot but I’m pleased that you managed to eat it all.
As a gesture of good will, we deducted the chicken from your bill.

This restaurant is ideal for people who are staying on the caravan sites on Beach Road as it does not require a very steep hill climb into the centre of Harlech. It is sited 100 metres from the railway station on the main through road.
I ate there 4 nights on the trot in the bar as I had the dog with me. Tables can be reserved in the bar. It is very dog friendly and your dog will be fed an endless supply of dog biscuits. The pub is clean and tastefully decorated. There is a nice long bar to stand and drink at and the bar staff and managers (maybe the owners) are friendly and attentive. You are made to feel very welcome. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. I will return when in the area again for sure.

My girlfriend and I stayed here with our dog Monty, we chose this hotel because of the spectacular beach at Harlech and the fact that the hotel is dog friendly and Frinedly is definetly the word the owners could not be more welcoming and helpful to us and Monty dog was made to feel really welcome. The hotel is lovely and cosy and the food and service are excellent.... and with the six nations rugby in full flow they even arraneg for Wales to beat England !!! Now that is what I call service. But seriously if you wnat to stay in a friendly hotel and take your dog this Y Branwen is highly recommended from us :-)

Room tip: All rooms are great with views out to the sea :-)
