We visited this restaurant the week before Easter with our daughter and dog. What a lovely family run place this is. Made to feel so welcome, our dog also had a huge fuss made of him and was allowed to join us in the restaurant, a first for us!
The bar area was very cosy and we enjoyed the chats with the owners very much.
The restaurant is huge, they are in the process of making it more 'gastro' which would add a bit of 'warmth' to the room. However, we loved it.
Our meal was delicious and the meat came from the local award winning butcher. Service was excellent too.
Thankyou for a great meal, our only regret was that we didn't get chance to go back. Next time!

We went there while staying in Bala for couple of nights. The food was delicious, well presented and reasonably priced. Service was second to none. Highly recommended. Would definitely come back!

We visited twice during our holiday and the food was great both times. The lamb bourguignon was amazing. The kids ate all there dinner and loved the mash potato. Lynn was very helpful and showed my son where they kept a stack of books which included a Star Wars annual which meant that a normally restless 7 year old was well behaved and we could relax and enjoy our dinner. I'd really recommend the restaurant as the staff are outstanding and the food is fantastic.

We made our annual visit to Plas Yn Dre and found the food, atmosphere and service up to the usual high standards that we have come to expect. Kyle and Lynn(e) provided excellent service and had time at the end of the night for a chat and some great banter after everyone else had left, I'm sure we delayed them but they didn't seem to mind! Chef Kevin prepared some great food and I can highly recommend the fish pie. Another great night and we'll be back next Easter.

Lynn & Charlotte, Tom & Eddie provided a lovely welcome on our 2 visits, the food was delicious, the Restaurant and Bar were very comfortable and Plas Yn Dre is extremely child friendly, they made a great fuss over Abigail (3 years) and she loved it! I would recommend this to my family, friends and anyone else looking for good food and great hospitality in Bala, will definitely go there again next year :-)

I think everyone should ignore the likes of Yvonne5678 who would probably would find fault anywhere
