My family and I were staying in a cottage and The Silver Fountain was the nearest place to eat so decided to give it a try. It's fair to say the outside could do with a bit of tlc and when you go in you find a good old fashioned homely pub. We were the first in as we'd gone... More

9 of us went to this place for a family meal, the food was fantastic and the service was great, even had 3 dogs with us which were very welcome.

Tried this place twice whilst on a weekend break, both times the food was good, good sized portions. Went for Sunday lunch and the roast was brilliant and the lady working, who I believe was called Jan, was excellent, friendly and welcoming. Would recommend to anyone staying nearby.

So I was back to England after my visit to north wales and pretty hungry. We stopped by after we saw an appealing board for "good food". A very typical Welsh decor, the food was a delight! The only downside was that it took a lot of time for the food to arrive. We ordered some burgers. But on the... More

Visited The Silver Fountain on Easter Sunday after calling to check if they had any tables. On arrival we were greeted by a very flustered Jan who was run ragged, yet still had time to laugh and smile and keep her customers chatting. The pub had obviously been busy throughout the day because one or two items on the menu... More

After a hard day scaling Snowdon my wife and I, along with some friends, called here late looking for some hearty food. The barmaid was a right laugh but also really good at her job and the pies were amazing. Of course when she told me they were made by Yorkshire folk I knew they would be. Anyway 3 ham... More

We ate here at new year and enjoyed a delicious meal of proper home-made food, good quality and very good value for money. The pub is rustic and traditional inside, accessed down steep steps from the car park at rear (could drop off outside at front with no steps). Very cosy feel helped by log fire burning. Husband had the... More
