Description: A traditional coastal pub with a small dining area and enclosed beer garden overlooking the River Ffraw estuary and sand dunes. We offer a good range of alcoholic and soft drinks including real ales, and quality home cooked food at an affordable price. Easily accessible from the A4080 and The Anglesey Coastal Path making us popular with dog walkers and families alike.

Visited this pub on a recent visit to Anglesey after I saw it recommended on TripAdvisor. The restaurant only has about 7 tables so you need to book, especially in the evening.
There is a reasonable selection on the menu. We decided to go for the Steak and Ale pie. It was excellent and a good portion. They also have a good range of beers including real ales and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Chose here based on reviews but found the place to be really disappointing. The Welsh Rarebit was awful - the cheese hadn't completely melted and there was far too much mustard in the mix. The vegetable soup was very bland and served with sliced bread - why no rolls? They had them for prople who ordered the stew! The chicken curry was passable if you like your curry made with sauce mixes, the fish pie was OK but the cheese topping hadn't been browned. Don't know if they were having an "off day" - won't be rushing back to find out.

A welcoming Inn in a great location close to the estuary with easy parking round and about. The menu is typical pub fayre supplemented with a daily specials board. We had a super tasty lunch of Whitebait to start with followed by pan fried fish. The food was great and portions plentiful. Our first visit to The Crown and we will be back to sample more. After the meal we walked down the Estuary and round the coast to Cwyfan Church which is marooned at high tide. A great way to walk off those calories. Maybe next time we'll do the walk first with the prize of a meal at The Crown to round off the day. Both the pub and walk are highly recommended.

A first visit to this little pub, a friendly owner behind the bar and a large, good ham sandwich. What more could you want - lots of happily served customers enjoying what looked like home-cooked meals! For me less crisps , opportunity to add less salad dressing and even a smaller sandwich on more interesting bread ( do some older people eat a little less?) . Decaffeinated coffee or tea would be most welcome to those of us forbidden the boost of caffeine, the choice of tonics was nice though and lemon with ice made it most delightful on a sunny autumn day, I wonder if the pub has more 'pubby' ambience in the evening, I hope so and intend to find out! Lovely people there.
