I arrived in Betwys-y-coed in mid-July, and tried to find somewhere to eat after a long journey. I called lots of different restaurants but nowhere was able to make a reservation for me. I was about to give up until I called Bryn Tyrch Inn...Restaurant and I was so relieved to find that not only were they not too busy, but I didn't even have to make a reservation! This was a huge relief as I thought I'd have to travel quite far or get a take away. They were serving pies this day, and to be fair I did quite enjoy the pie. However, the pie was served with crisps instead of chips, an extremely basic salid and pickled eggs and onions. At first I thought that this was a Welsh thing to serve food this way, but after eating at other nearby restaurants on the following days, the difference in quality of the dishes became quite apparent; lovely chunky chips and great side foods. The dish I ate would have been fine if it was clear that it wouldn't come with cooked chips, was served at lunch time, and was a slightly lower price, but I felt a little let down with my food. The service was good, they were friendly and attentive. I took photos of all my meals on my holiday, but didn't capture this one as I didn't feel it was worthy of sharing.More

Great evening at Bryn Tyrch. They were very busy but we didn't have to wait long for our food. Delicious lamb kofta to start and the tacos were great. The staff were friendly

Called in yesterday with 6 adults and 1 x 8 year old for a meal. We all had different meals and all agreed that the food was as good as we have ever had. The couple running it, were exceptionally friendly and could not do...enough for us; especially for the fussy 8 year old for whom they did some special requests. Very comfortable place, very relaxed atmosphere, beautiful open fire. We were all so impressed that we are now considering staying there at some time in the future. If I could give it 6 stars I would.More

We had a fabulous family dinner here...generous portions of quality food well priced and served with proper hospitality...it's a family business that clearly cares. Support them. Great steaks, burgers and fish and chips...pub classics executed with great ingredients and style.. applause especially for the super...tasty rump steak. When I spotted lamb scratchings as a starter bite I knew someone in the kitchen knew how to cook...deep fried bits of lamb breast that our kids demolished. Desserts were generous and tasty...we shared the sticky toffee and it was excellent...go.More

Tried visiting with a group of 7 with a large number of available tables but was rudely turned away with no attempt to accommodate us despite offering to split up. Would suggest avoiding this place, find somewhere more friendly down the road instead.

The food was disappointing but for the price was down right ripp off however one person in the party thought the main course was ok albeit a little overpriced. Will be looking elsewhere for the remainder of the holiday.

Dropped in after a long walk. Ordered 2 beers and a tea. The two beers were cloudy. Mine more than the other one. Pointed this out to the barman who said it looked clear to him. He did however give me another pint which was...just about passable. I used to work at this hotel many years ago when it was a welcoming place. How times have changed. I will not be visiting again.More

We had a lovely meal here. Really impressed with the smoked mackerel starter , especially. the sea trout was lovely and so was my steak. Great selection of drinks, and would definitely go back.

The Bryn Tyrch never disappoints, in menu choice and quality of food. Not cheap, but all the food is cooked fresh to order. There is something for everyone; burgers, pies, meat and vegetarian. Fish on the specials board, but not every day.
