We ate there three times with family and friends recently, whilst on our vacation from Singapore, We stayed in a house 10 minutes walk away. The food was great, good quality, local produce, and large portions. The local beer was also very good. The owners & staff were all very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend a visit!

We were staying a 50 minute walk away but decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. The staff were incredibly friendly and the food fantastic. My lamb was to die for and huge! The server gave us quite the historical blurb on the hotel which we loved.

Our room was cosy and had everything you could wish for and was clean and quiet. The hotel oozes history and the breakfasts were superb. Views...

We stayed the night after a failed walk up Cadair Idris (due to the weather). However, our weekend was not spoiled as we checked in earlier than expected and settled in to our lovely rooms which were spacious, comfortable and clean. The bed was amazing! We started the evening with a drink in the residents lounge and followed this with...

We stayed here for one night on our way up to Snowdon on Sunday 17th July. The owner was very welcoming and a lovely lady. We had Sunday lunch which was amazing especially the Yorkshire puddings!!!
