Staff were very attentive and a credit to your hotel!! The food was yummy, we had to rush off as we had a poorly baby but would definitely have stayed for dessert if we had the opportunity. Thank you

We were a party of 11 and everyone unreservedly thought the food was excellent! What really lifted the evening though was the great service - friendly, attentive, but not intrusive and relaxed, truly service with a smile. As the meal was part of a re-union it was also great to have a 'private' room.

Big thank you to the staff for such brilliant service they provided me and my friends. Last minute booking and they fitted us in as a large group although it was busy. They helped us to celebrate our friends 40th by providing us with a function room. Again the managers and staff made us feel welcome and appreciated as customers. I would recommend to anyone to visit / stay. 1st class.

There was a bit of confusion when we arrived, we were shown to our table by the barman who didn’t seem very happy about it and didn’t give us any menus or any indication if it was table service or if we needed to ordered at the bar. We were left waiting for about 15 minutes whilst staff came in and out before I managed to catch the eye of the waitress. She apologised, she thought we had ordered because we didn’t have menus. We ordered our food. I had the lamb which was tasty and my husband ordered the roast chicken. The chicken dish was a bit disappointing, small chicken breast cut in two. The dish was also supposed to have red cabbage with it which we only realised was missing at the end. No one came to clear our plates and I had to ‘catch the eye’ of another waitress to get the bill. Overall the service was not as good as I was expecting. The staff were friendly but not attentive enough. No one asked if we wanted any more drinks or desert. Also slightly annoyed that a ten percent service charged is automatically added to the bill. I was expecting better and left feeling disappointed. Wouldn’t return.

The service was friendly and nothing was too much trouble! The food as always was very good indeed, though the chicken pie was a little dry. However, the only reason for not giving 5stars for the food and drink was the distinctly average condition of the real ale, something I've noticed before. Overall though, very good indeed!

A beautiful, relaxing setting in the heart of Conwy. Coffee was great, service was supurb and nice to see a range of local producers used in food and drinks.

We treated my parents for their birthdays and the food, atmosphere and service were wonderful - the steaks were the best ever, however we were slightly disappointed with the sharing starters. We ordered 2 between 4 of us (which was 6 choices; 3 per platter) and the portions of each were tiny. One of them was mackerel pate on toast and was literally one small slice of French bread toasted with pate on and a slither of greenery - we had to cut this in half to share and it was genuinely less than a mouthful for the cost of £4! We also ordered pitta bread and lime houmous which again was very tasty, but hardly any pitta bread, to the extent where I literally had one strip in order to let my parents enjoy it. Finally 10℅ service charge was automatically added to the bill which increased the final cost quite a lot. We were advised this wasn't compulsory but I personally think this should be at the customers discretion in the first place. I would always leave a tip if the service was good, but not necessarily 10% when the menu is quite expensive to start with and we chose to go there for a special occasion, not an everyday affordable treat.
