Really good Pub with a wide choice of real beers as well as an extensive, sensibly priced, menu. Good parking off road at the back and they do have rooms too.

We went in here for lunch. An attractive old style pub. Service was prompt we had sandwiches and chips. The bread was nice but no butter! This made the food rather dry, especially my wife's ham on which she had to put mayonaisse. Just a small consideration that makes a big difference.

We were looking for somewhere to eat on the way home from Race the Train in Tywyn. It was a busy Saturday night and the pub was very full with people eating. The last few tables were all reserved but the lovely waitress said we could use one that was booked for 7.30pm as it was only 6.30pm and we... More

We were en route to North Wales and called in the hope of having a meal on a Sunday at 4,10 pm, and were pleased to find we could select any item from a large menu including Sunday lunch.. We opted for 2 basket meals.Service at the bar was good despite the popularity of the bar and food service.
