I'm not into bad reviews beer was good Atmosphere ok Halfway through the match because the food smelt nice we decided to have some chips 5 of us cost us £9 and wasnt enough for 2 on the bowl What a joke Can't belive it and it might explain why the pub is half empty for a MAJOR event .... More

Stayed at the Bulkeley Arms during the Summer while visiting family. Breakfast in the morning on both days was amazing, decided we would bring the family in to sample the lunch menu, what can I say it was lovely, we will be returning next Summer. Our new go to place when visiting the Island. Thank you.

Popped in here for morning coffee, friendly staff, big comfortable Chesterfield leather chairs and sofas. Had a coffee and scone with jam and clotted cream, this was very tasty, homemade. Staff friendly and attentive. Happy to visit again.

Thank you for the review, I can not take any credit, however I am sure the Bulkeley Arms Hotel in Beaumaris would be happy with it. Sadly all I can offer at present are two 'Faux' leather sofas which I must admit need replacing, I can only dream of having chesterfields as they would get abused :( More

Thank you for your review, I appreciate your comments and I am slightly disappointing as I do use local Welsh sausages which I find tasty - if cooked properly. Sausage and mash should have come with gravy as stated on the menu, you should have complained at the time. I will have a word with the kitchen staff. Glad you... More

Was in the area to visit Ribrider which is just round the corner and had an hour to spare so popped in for lunch. Nice young man behind the bar was friendly and efficient, food came quickly and was of good quality, especially the fish and chips. Decor a bit tired around the edges and there's a TV in every...

Thank you for seeing my establishment as it is basically a Sports bar that serves decent Pub grub. I agree the decor is tired around the edges, it has been three years since the place was decorated - some called it a re-refurbishment, but it was a re-decoration!!! The landlord and chef are keen to please and ensure everyone enjoys... More

Stopped off for a bite to eat with my nephew. We had burgers which were great. Place was quiet but it was a Wednesday afternoon. Pleasant staff.

Called into this "pub" during a visit to the area and desperate for food. It's simply a pub not an area for good pub grub. The seating appears to be for people to sit down and drink not eat. Asked if food was on and was told where to find a menu. Only after we had ordered drinks and opened... More
