We visited here on Easter Sunday. Always a worry when going somewhere with kids when there is a bouncer on the door! It was packed and very noisy. Luckily we could go straight to our table as there was no way we could have waited in the bar area with a small child. We were really looking forward to eating here but were very disappointed. We went with the Sunday roast. The chef obviously has a new toy in the kitchen as there was so much stuff that had been puréed! As for the veg (more purée) my husband piled it on his plate & when I asked where my dish was we were told it was to share!! Not enough for 2 people by any stretch of the imagination! I had lamb which was chewy & the roast potatoes were over cooked. My husband had the 3 meat one, but said there wasn’t much meat! When asked if we enjoyed our meal we did say it was average & explained why, but the waitress wasn’t interested! We left disappointed & still hungry!

Hadn't been to Conwy in a few years and always used to find that the town lacked any particularly good pubs and restaurants, but this seems to have changed with quite a few new businesses springing up but this place is the best of them. Very cosy in the bar area with a great atmosphere (and dog friendly) and nice dining areas The quality of the food and the real ales was top notch and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. just perfect.

Went here for Sunday lunch; lovely starter of white beans and prawns in a spicy tomato sauce and slow roast beef for main; served with a good selection of sweed, cabbage, carrots and cauliflower, lovely Yorkshire puds,but the roast potatoes were a little hard. Service was very good even though it was busy and I’m pleased we had booked in advance.

We were a group Of 6 and ordered starters and mains. We were all very pleased with all meals - very tasty indeed! Unfortunately we were too full for dessert but the menu looked lovely. Very busy , would recommend booking. We were glad to be sat on the top floor away from the hustle and bustle.
Only disappointment was that they didn't have any dark ales/ porters for sale .
