Visited three times over the last week and can confirm without doubt this is the greatest pub I have ever visited. Open log fire, good beer and the very best pub grub I've ever eaten, in huge portions. I'm tempted to make the 4 hour round trip from home just to eat the Sunday roast from here

We arrived late one Sunday evening, the lady behind the bar was lovely (even though she was rushed off her feet) All of our food was fabulous which included a chicken, leek & ham pie, a chicken korma and a chicken crumble, kids were very happy with cheesy chips and chicken breast nuggets. Great portion size, no room left for dessert sadly.

We have meant to visit a couple of times after a recommendation from my brother but have either gone too early (they open at 6pm) or when they are closed. We did however get to go the other day and was impressed. The food is lovely. We had the prawn cocktail and breaded jalapenos for starters which were large portions and delicious, and Lasagna and Lamb shank for main, which again were lovely. The place is quaint and although the car park is awkward to get into if u come from Llanrwst direction, it is worth the visit. Just check it's open before making the trip :-)

Visited here while camping down the road . Staff are friendly but seemed run off their feet therefore service a bit slow.
The setting is on a very busy dangerous road so you have to be very careful to keep any adventurous little ones safely with you .
The lady who served us was lovely but seemed to be really busy and a bit erratic so not sure how well staffed it is .
That being said when our food did arrive it was really lovely . Obviously well prepared and not just shoved in a microwave . Very reasonably priced too . Empty plates all round for all of us .
Would definitely go again

Good value for money. Friendly humorous staff despite being very busy at supper time trying to serve all guests with one staff member.
