Booked this place as it was close to the Zip World underground caverns experience which was fantastic. On arrival the place looked grubby and unwelcoming, nothing like the picture. We walked in and were hit by the overpowering doggy smell. The place is filthy. Our...More

If ever there was a pub that could truly call itself "local" then this is it. It was saved, after closing down, by the local community and is run by them. Very nice and friendly in here and a decent enough selection of drinks and...More

Delicious food, we all had something different and it was all very good. There is a cosy pub atmosphere and all the staff we encountered were very helpful and friendly. A little jewel of a place.

When we booked our week at a local cottage I had no idea that the 'pub within walking distance' was The Pengwern Arms. I stayed there for a week with my parents and brother back in 1970. Yes, of course it's changed, but the layout...More

Stayed here in July. The staff made us feel really welcome. Had a great evening with the locals playing live music. This hotel is ideally situated for trips to Snowdonia and Portmeirion. The local waterfalls are also within easy walking distance. Local volunteers do a...More

Arrived at Llan Festiniog after long drive and after unpacking called at the pub. It's not your usual 'Spoons' etc but it's still a comfortable place to enjoy a drink or two. Staff friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we didn't get to eat but the menu...More
