we ate here twice during our stay at a nearby campsite. The first time was a lot better than the second so I suspect the quality is quite variable. The pie on the first night was superb, the chicken pie the second time was just a watery chicken soup with a pastry top in a bowl.
4 real ales on offer but a disapointment to be in the heart of Welsh micr brewery country and only find 1 example.....Conway Brewery.....the other decent one was Hancox which at least was Welsh....the other 2 Doombar and Adnams best were both from breweries 250 miles + away!
Bar is very noisy for dining but restaraunt looked quite smart.
On a sunny day there are lots of nice tables outside.....on a grey day I think I would give it a miss.

Stayed here last weekend with a part of 9 people having 4 bedrooms for 2 nights sorry to give such bad review. The hotel was basic, had pets which barked during night. Don't have a room at the front of the hotel as the noise from the bar kept you awake. Breakfast was not good. (The ceiling in the dinning room had been damaged by flooding 2 years ago but was still not redecorated.) Sausage and bacon were not of the best quality. Everything else was just basic.
We had one evening meal which was most disappointing. The specials on the menu were about 15 - never seen this before and the ones we had were not special. As the meals came too quick, I suspect the use of a mircowave was frequently used. However, as one of us said at least we kept dry and the location was handy. Find a nice bed and breakfast nearby instead.

Room Tip: back of hotel...try a nearby bed and breakfast instead

During our little trip to Snowdonia we had lots of rain, so we spent quite some time in our hotel, Ty Mawr. I can not say that I really like Ty Mawr, but I certainly don't hate it. The garden with the picknicktables is lovely, but because of the bad weather there wasn't much opportunity to sit there. Our room was the only room in the hotel with internet-connection, and you only had a connection if you sat in the bathroomwindow. The hosts were very friendly and the room was ok, but not really clean (especially underneath the beds). It was nice to have a good tv and facility to boil water and make tea.
The evening meal was very nice, the breakfast was ok, but not very special.

Room Tip: Our room was the only one with internet connection. I forgot the room-number but it is the first roo...

Bar staff were knowledgeable about their ales and ciders and had a good variety of drinks as they were CAMRA Member and sold CAMRA ales and ciders.

Friendly Atmosphere, welcomed dogs in the bar and was clean. Staff were well presented and helpful.

Good location close to Shell Island and Waterfalls. Big outdoor garden, clean benches with parasols. Specify pints or you get half pints.

Reasonable prices for food and drink, option to eat in the bar or resteraunt

No mobile signal which was slightly annoying but not their fault.

The waitress who served us looked scruffy and untidy, should have uniform or something smart.

Treacle tart was cold with hot custard which was a bit odd, ruined the meal. However all other deserts were perfect.

There was some music, empty without it but annoying genre of music.

Cost: 4.5/5
Food quality: 4.5/5
Service: 4/5
Atmosphere: 4/5

Overall: 4/5

We regularly stay in this area but had never before been to Ty Mawr. On arrival the bar area was busy mainly it appeared with local guys who were not very accomodating to us as new arrivals in 'their zone'.

However we looked at the menu and it appeared to offer a good selection of home made food. We ordered our drinks and food and took a seat. While we waited we were able to take in more of the surrounding bar area which was generally scruffy and indeed dirty in places not least in the table top rebates. Our food arrived quickly, we had both ordered the home made steak and ale casserole with new potatoes and vegetables. I can only describe the casserole as a bowl of thin brown liquid with not more than 5 chunks of beef floating in it, the vegetables had clearly been prepared well in advance and then re-heated in a microwave and were dry and tasteless. During the course of our visit we were never asked if we were happy with our meal and the overall service was poor.

I can honestly describe this as the worst bar meal we have experienced in over 30 years of our married life! At the start of this review I said this was our first time at Ty Mawr, I can now assure you it will also be our last!

We regularly stay at nearby Shell Island and have found ourselves in here for a pint on more than one occasion. The owners are very friendly and accommodating.
More recently we decided to have a pub lunch and it far exceeded expectations, the food was to a high quality, freshly prepared with fresh vegetables. I would highly recommend the fish pie.

Perfect if you're camping and get sick of the barbecue!

we came across this place by acccident - I must admit it wasn't our first choice, but we will go again. We wanted to eat out but everywhere was busy so a friend we were out with suggested this place up the lane. I could easily have eaten any thing on the menu as every meal sounded appertising. The food was well presented , tasy and freshly made - we plan to go again very soon - the staff were friendly, the bar was not too crowded and the background miusic welcoming .
