Visited with friends on a busy Friday evening. The service was good from the friendly staff and the young woman working that evening was particularly helpful and polite. The food is in the main traditional pub food and was very nice. Would visit again

Unfortunately we do not at Y Castell due to it being primarily carpeted and a eating venue. Our sister venue Copa a few doors away do allow dogs though.
