Description: This hotel and restaurant sits in a spectacular location overlooking the Menai Straits on the Ismand of Anglesey. Recently under new management it offers a wide range of cuisine from bar meals to a full dining room service. A good range of beers and wines are available and a menu with some good choices often with locally sourced ingredients. Local mussels and fish are specialities and well worth a try. With friendly and helpful staff and meals at very reasonable prices this is a lovely spot to enjoy a relaxing spot, good food and drink with superb views over the Straits. In the summer months. outdoor dining at tables at the water's edge is particularly pleasant. It can get a little crowded in high season but bookings can be made for the restaurant to avoid disappointment. During Spring and Autumn it is rarely crowded but has a good all-year round reputation with local customers. The hotel is residential and has a good reputation but, never having stayed there myself, I cannot comment on the residential element of the hotel.

It's been a while since we had lunch at The Gazelle, so we decided to visit to see what the 'new management' had done for the restaurant. It's worth visiting for the spectacular views alone, but good food was what we wanted on this occasion!
First thing we noticed was a general facelift - it all looked spic and span, which was pleasing. There wasn't an extensive menu (it was a Sunday lunch), but it was adequate.
We opted for Prawn cocktail followed by roast beef.
The Prawn cocktail came in a '70's' style tall glass, with a very tasty fresh bread roll alongside it. It was a generous portion and had been freshly prepared. No surprises there!
We had to wait a while for our main course, but that, again, was freshly prepared. It was good, solid grub! The beef was very tasty and tender, if slightly too well done for us. There was a large Yorkshire pud (a tad 'doughy' inside), a lovely smooth mash, a roastie and roasted parsnips. There was also a side dish of mixed vegetables (not sure what the carrots were pretending to be; they were neither whole nor mashed). You couldn't grumble about the size of the meal!
We ate, looking at the snowy hills over the Menai Straight and very pleasant it was too!
It gets terribly crowded in the summer, so appreciate it in the low season! Good luck to the 'new management'.
