A very enjoyable meal and good service. The pub is ideally located along the shore at Rhos. Very good menu with varied dishes. The service was great and our waiter was delightful. We ate the 2 course meal plus wine for £18.95. We had eaten there before so we were looking forward to the evening and our friends were impressed... More

Met some friends here for lunch, have been before and it was very nice. Did not disappoint this time either. Friendly service, good value, decent portions and good variety. Can recommend the goats cheese tart or the mini fish and chips.

Fantastic food, staff were friendly, great views of the sea and a good selection of drinks. There's also a pool table for those interested and outside seating for when the weather's good. All round I'd strongly recommend a visit.

We called in for a quiet drink as other pubs in the area though friendly enough were rather seedy. The drinks are a bit on the expensive side but we were happy to pay a little extra for a nice venue. The food looked really nice and if we are in the area again will give it a try.

Excellent lunch, nothing was too much trouble, good wifi so grandson was entertained whilst we ate. They provided toddler cutlery, tweaked the childrens menu for us. The dishes were very tasty and incredibly reasonable.

We visited The Toad on Monday and must say I didn't know what to expect with it being a quiet monday night in January. I needn't have worried. The meal was freshly cooked, tasted lovely, the presentation was amazing and staff were accommodating. Highly recommend this establishment. Well worth the visit, despite the disruption caused by the roadworks on the... More

We have dined at the toad four times and have never been disappointed, I had the chicken with pepper sauce, the potatoes and vegetables were the nicest I have ever had, my husband had the steak and was equally impressed as we live in stoke we will be back during the summer
