Lovely Sunday lunch, our guest enjoyed your vegetarian Sunday lunch. Service excellent as usual, staff attentive but we are never rushed. Chocolate fondant desert was delicious. Thank you, will be back.

I lived in Conwy for 10 yrs and never went into the Castle Hotel. On my first visit this week with 6 friends we had an excellent experience. Booking was easy with a range of options, staff were attentive and the food was excellent. The decor is traditional if not a bit old fashioned but did not detract from the atmosphere. I shall probably return for a quite meal with my family.

The atmosphere was very dull, after reading good reviews for the food and drink I was excited for our evening meal. However, the waiter was very blunt and not at all friendly and seemed to be in a rush to get us out, although there were only 2 other couples in the restaurant. Food was nice, however, very pretentious and not worth the money in my eyes.

The food,wine and service was excellent,however, after dinner my wife and I retired to the bar where we ordered a Mojito cocktail and a Sapphire gin & tonic,unfortunately we were advised that the bar had run out of mint & lime for the cocktail and only had spiced tonic for the gin? It is a small gripe I know, and really, didn't spoil the evening as a whole,which was lovely.

Me and my friend had the most wonderful meal seated in the Restaurant area. We both had scallops and black pudding to start, which was absolutely perfect, followed by the duo of duck and the sirloin steak for our main courses, both were incredible. We were satisfied after two courses, but the dessert menu was too good to resist. I had the chocolate fondant and my friend had the baked orange cheesecake, both exceptional choices. All were served with a smile from our lovely, kind hostess Bella, a real asset to the team @ the castle.. she really made our evening. Definitely the best place to dine in the area, everything was spot on.

Waited a while for someone to take our order, even though we were the first ones to arrive. Everything else was excellent. Thank you

5 of us ate in Shakespeare's. The whole building was crowded,very busy and staff seemed a bit stretched. Service was excellent although a steak arrived too well done. Another was quickly produced. We all had three courses which was almost too much and tasted really very good. When the bill arrived the cost of the steak was not on the bill and service charge cancelled. We were happy to accept the free steak but still paid the service charge as the staff were brilliant. Really happy to recommend and we will certainly be going back.

It was a family meal for six of us. The food and the service were brilliant. Great atmosphere in the bar. A favourite venue for us when people come to stay. They all love it.

friendly staff, given enough time between courses, and not rushed to leave, therefore we had a very relaxing meal. food was lovely and enough choices for vegetarians too.

Very disappointing meal! The food courses were incredibly long to arrive. The first course took over 30mins to arrive and the main course 25mins. The chicken and mushroom pie was dry and over cooked. The chicken and sea bass main courses were ok. The service was over stretched and inexperienced although the customer facing staff were very pleasant.

We had a good meal on Saturday night. The service was excellent and very attentive. The food was good especially the starters and puddings. Both main courses were a little below par ( Three Cheese loaf was very tasty but a little dry, while the red mullet was bland.) But overall we had a great evening and certainly would come back.

Upon arriving we were very well served. Seated in a snug booth in a corner. We ordered Sunday lunches and drinks that were all served quickly. Following that we had to wait 20minutes for someone to clear our plates and offer the desert menu. We were then forgotten about once more and we had to call a waitress over who had walked past many times but would not look our way. All in all the service was poor, the food over priced and we will not be returning.

Good food. Very nice and friendly staff. Their dresscode is a bit presumptuous but beside that a nice place to dine.
