We visited the Vaynol Arms in August, we had a lovely meal. The pork loin was absolutely delicious, really reasonably priced and off road parking which is always a bonus. The restaurant was really authentic and we had a lovely corner seat in the window.

Called in after a visit to Anglesey. Sunday lunch very average, and in view of this, overpriced. Edible but bland. Didn't progress to desserts. Service good though.
