real beer, dogs welcome, old fashioned proper pub. We spent a lovely afternoon in the beer garden with our children. Not a chain pub, unpretentious, everything you want really!

I always look forward to my trips to Borth so that I can step down into this little gem of a pub. It's so old fashioned, quirky and serves great real ales. I can see why people might not like it - the owner is a bit grumpy,and it's full of odd bit and pieces, but that's part of the... More

Strange quirky place this. You enter down some steps into a front section which clearly functions as a pub. But then the corridor and the room behind is more art gallery and family play room equipped with table tennis table. And then up the stairs is some sort of antiquities / junk shop during the day. It's worth buying a... More

What a fascinating little pub. Serving good real ale in a pub which has a interesting history in Borth. With friendly helpful service making the Friendship a great place for a pint. Thee is also an antique shop upstairs. Musicians play regular, but we were unable to go that night but intend to next time we're in Borth.

After hearing live music as we were walking past a friend and I decided on the spur of the moment to pop in and have a look - we didn't regret it! Lovely, lively, different pub, fab live music, great locals and top landlord - Tracy and I thank you for making us (and our dogs!) so welcome - we... More

This is a great place if you want to just sit and have a drink and a chat. I have walked passed here many times, before going in last week. It's kind of like stepping back in time into this quirky little place that is a cross between an antique/art shop and a pub. Kids weren't impressed but I will... More

Despite going to Borth or years, I've generally avoided the Friendship as I was told it was very unfriendly (and I can see some reviews saying this). However my experience was quite different. I popped in for a pint to see the snail racing during Borth Carnival week and it had a real buzz. The decor was old style, but... More

After holidaying in borth for many years, I finalluy managed to catch this place open. It is usually always closed, and I have been during the six week holidays, so not an out of season thing. Décor is very typical old pub and qquite uncomfortable and cluttered, felt very cold and waited 10 minutes to be served, despite being only... More

Fantastic Pub with soul. Definitely worth to visit. There is unusual antics gallery upstairs and lots of arts down through corridor. Great atmosphere and very friendly service. The best place to chill with some drink in Borth.
