Looking for a late lunch we found this quiet and secluded from the hustle and bustle outside. The service was a little slow, but the food was good, if a little overpriced. An attractive venue too.

Description
Dawson"s at the Castle Hotel Conwy offers inspired use of fantastic local produce to create our Michelin guide recommended, AA 2 rosette awarded dishes that suit all occasions, from a quick bite to eat to that special occasion dinner. With a choice of different areas, bar/lounge and dining room, the ambience and "buzz" of satisfied diners adds to the overall experience and our friendly, un-stuffy service will hope to satisfy your every need. The building dates back to the 16thC but has been transformed with the tasteful marriage of modern, sophisticated style and sympathetic renovation of period features, meaning whichever area you choose to dine in you are sure of being enveloped in over a hundred years of celebrations and good times, the intangible made real. The wine list is also worth note, with no fewer than 19 wines by the glass, from white, to red to rose and then sparkling, you are sure to find a favorite being offered! PLEASE STATE YOUR ROOM PREFERENCE WHEN BOOKING.
