Just got back from a lovely family meal.
It was their first night/day of opening since covid and they have done such a great job of setting everything up so it’s safe to eat indoors and out.
We sat outside on the decking area as it was a nice sunny evening but It’s really spacious inside too. The staff were very good, efficient and friendly. There was also a good choice of food on the menu 3 of my family are vegetarian and said the food choice was great.
The food here is amazing !! We had starters, main and a sweet. Everyone really enjoyed each one of their course’s. No complaints the whole family said how nice it was. My children and husband thought the steak was really tasty. It was really good value for money too and even better with them taking part in the government scheme of £10 off per person. We will definitely be back !! thanks

I never write reviews but decided to write one after visiting the Stamford Gate for a meal.
The food was absolutely perfect for me and my family completely enjoyed it too.
I had three courses, even if I had to struggle, it was that good!
Starting with the spicy chicken wings with blue cheese dip, they were succulent and a large size, very tasty and just spicy enough.
The main course was fillet steak with peppercorn sauce. The sauce was delicious with some really tasty mushrooms on the side, really nice home made chips and the steak was cooked perfectly.
For dessert I had something that I can’t remember the name of but it was kind of a version of a Bakewell tart with chantily cream, it was absolutely delicious.

It seems to me that the Stamford has decided to compile a menu of what might be regarded as ‘pub classics’. Fish & chips, sausage & mash ..etc..
But this isn’t just pub food, if pub food was a car, this would be the Rolls Royce.

Service was excellent, lovely place to eat and we waiting just long enough between courses.
I will definitely be going back.

We had a family meal here yesterday for my sister in laws 30th. We had pre ordered as it was a large group of around 30 people.
Staff at the Stamford Gate were excellent and very attentive. Pre orders we’re all correct and came out in a timely manner.
We asked for children’s lasagnes and the chef was able to accommodate this for us which was great as our girls demolished their meals even after the kids halloumi (this was great as a kids starter option too!).
Our meals were lovely too and good portions and really good value.
Thanks for making it a great experience, can’t wait to return and will definitely recommend.

So it's in a lovely town and plenty of attractions and history around.

Emma, the manager was friendly and professional.

Room more than adequate for 3 of us. Only negatives about the actual room was that it was hot and water pressure poor.

Emma told us that there was a party on but she would ask the DJ to keep it down. Well, all I can say is that we might aswell have tried to sleep in the actual party room....it went on until after midnight...it vibrated in our room and was the loudest I've ever experienced. If I'd not had a drink, I would have packed up and driven 2hrs back home.

Then to top it all, the people above us were banging around until 5am. Ruined our whole weekend away and had to cut it short due to lack of sleep.

Never in 30 years of travelling have I ever experienced noise to this level.

As we went for breakfast, Emma asked how we'd slept so I told her "not good, due to noise". There was no response from her.

Then at breakfast I asked for really well cooked bacon and sausage. It came out barely cooked. It was swimming in fat. The bacon was like gammon and chewy. My husband loved the scrambled egg but theirs was swimming in grease too.

Really disappointed. Was looking forward to staying here.

Very welcoming staff, nothing too much trouble. Basic, clean and spacious room with tea/coffee and hairdryer available.
Food: Breakfast was lovely, very well presented (full breakfast available, cerals and toast/jams)
Evening meal: huge portions, great value and very tasty! I had the chicken burger and when I asked what the cheesecake was, chocolate battenberg....love that they made something different, so I went for it! As a person who dines out regularly with travel, and has a sweet tooth 😆 I would say this is the best cheesecake I've ever had! The explosion of different flavours was amazing!! Also 'diolch' to the young waitress you spotted I spoke Welsh!!

I stayed at the Stamford Gate Hotel on the 19th July for business. My surmise of the hotel is that the food was brilliantly cooked! I feel like calling it “pub grub” is an insult to the chefs! I had a fantastic meal comprising of some Olives and a little bread to start, Gammon steak with egg, chips, peas & charred pineapple for a main and Panna Cotta for a dessert even though it sounds basic it was done to perfection! (The chips were hand cut and amazing) portion size was a positive also. The only grumble I would have is that the service was a little slow but the food more than made up for it and potentially the rooms could do with a little updating/modernising! For those looking to stay I would say it’s a great place just off of the A55 North Wales!

We popped into the Stamford Gate as we happened to be passing by one Sunday afternoon. When we arrived, the staff were very welcoming and quick to accommodate us despite it being peak time of the day. I haven't been out for a Sunday roast for several months but I must say that this was one of the best roast dinners I have had for a very long time. The beef was cooked perfectly, the Yorkshire pudding was light yet crispy on the outside, and the gravy was simply divine. All complimented with some lovely sides too. I can't fault the food or the service and for that I give it 5 stars. We will be sure to return.

We ended up here for four nights due to our original holiday being cancelled at the last minute. It’s probably the friendliest hotel I’ve stayed in. Staff are really welcoming and seem very happy in their roles. The food! Oh my goodness the food. Fantastic quality fabulous menu and reasonable prices too. We ate in every night. Enough said. The rooms are a bit tired but functional and the beds were extremely comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel as a base for exploring North Wales and Shropshire. You won’t be disappointed.

Ate here for a recent family birthday. Great food, big portions, attentive staff- very knowledgable about menu and dietery requirements, friendly and approachable. Atmosphere can be lacking at it's a big place and few diners in the week but very busy at weekends with drinking and dining customers. Not been disappointed yet after several visits
