This system is necessary to ensure fairness to all our patrons, but may be subject to change.

Wonderful time having a pre-Christmas meal with family. Easy to see why the Black Boy Inn Caernarfon is so popular.

I had booked a table several weeks in advance and was a bit disappointed being sat 10 inches from the table next to us and having to move the table to get in and out from the table. I kind of felt shoe horned in. The food and service was great even though they had run out of mussels which we both had ordered . In fairness I did approach the staff to see weather I could have the table an hour earlier not sure if this would have made any difference. I did mention this when I paid and the waitress did apologise. Still worth a visit and the bar has atmosphere.

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent atmosphere. Drinks a bit pricey. Please remember your local support who remains loyal all year round! Loyalty card discount needs to be revised.
