We prefered to eat in town, for the good choice available. This is not the cheapest place, but the food is good. Football fans are well served, as there is a white wall in the dining room with an overhead projector.

I wish I had read the other reviews of this place before booking a table! The food is overpriced and very poor quality, you would eat better food at a Wetherspoons and pay half the price. Service was slow but the staff were clearly rushed...off their feet and we had to ask for our table to be cleaned, really not great Covid safety. The food was poorly cooked, possible microwaved. Sauces were watery and the meat a very odd texture. We complained and an apology was made by our server but no offer of removing the barely touched meals from our bill.More

We were there for food on Monday, service was very long waiting and unfriendly. I understand they were overly busy noticed only two person doing everything that evening we appreciate that but food was really bad quality the price they charged.

When we arrive I had to ask three times for our table to be cleaned, during coronavirus pandemic. Food very poor and over priced for the quality.

We were in Betws-y-Coed over the August bank holiday weekend and booked a table for the Saturday night. I was surprised to get a booking at such late notice, as the whole town was extremely busy, and now I know why! The staff were all...friendly enough, but the service and the food is just not up to scratch. Once we were shown to our table I had to queue up for about half an hour just to get a drink. There was only one "barman" serving, and he was nice enough but was certainly not in any rush. Why they couldn't put more staff on when the queue was snaking half way around the hotel is a mystery. Once I got to the front of the queue I decided to order our meals at the same time as I didn't want to have to queue again! When the meals came, they were overcooked, dry and unappealing. I had the half chicken and my son had chicken nuggets. They were overcooked and on the verge of being burnt. I know it was busy, but surely these aren't difficult meals to cook? I wouldn't recommend this place.More

Stopped here for a pizza for Lunch. After 40 mins no food arrived, when others who arrived after us had their food, had to ask and was told that the order didn’t got through the till. Waited another 20 mins for pizza to arrive. Asked...for complementary drink which I had to ask the manager, the the manager was too busy to “trace” our order and the drink never arrived. Appalling attitude from Manager and staffMore

Ate here on a Wed and benefited from the eat out to help out deal although we didn’t go for that reason. Sat outside and went to order at the bar. Brought our drinks outside and lunch arrived in around 20 mins. Steak pies were...delicious as were the chunky chips. Also had some sandwiches which were nice but the pies were definitely nicer!More
