Our View

This award-winning, 17th-century pub is secreted in a secluded hamlet between the coastal plain and the beautiful Elwy Valley. The original sandstone frontage and mullion windows disguise a contemporary, slightly quirky interior, which features a log-burning stove and an eclectic choice of decor. While beers from local microbreweries and Welsh cider quench a walker's thirst; hungry guests are rewarded with a stylish menu that has gained two AA Rosettes. Local produce is the baseline for dishes that can include a starter of crab langoustine and kohlrabi. Mains might be sausage-stuffed guinea fowl, corn bread leg Kiev, texture of sweetcorn; or beef, kidney and mushroom pie with bone marrow gravy. Finish with a dark chocolate sphere filled with textures of passion fruit and chocolate. Four sumptuous rooms are available for guests seeking to incorporate a short break.

About the area

Discover Conwy

The majority of the population of Conwy lives along its picturesque coastline, while a third of the county falls within jaw-dropping landscape of the Snowdonia National Park. The town of Conwy, which takes its name from the county (which in turn was named after the river that runs through it), is undoubtedly one of the great treasures of Wales.

Three fine bridges – Thomas Telford’s magnificent suspension bridge of 1822, Robert Stephenson’s tubular railway bridge, and a newer crossing – all stretch over the estuary beneath the castle, allowing both road and the railway into this medieval World Heritage Site. Pride of place goes to the castle, dating back to 1287.

Conwy is the most complete walled town in Britain, with walls measuring an impressive six feet in thickness and 35 feet in height. The walkway along the top offers splendid over-the-rooftop views of the castle, the estuary and the rocky knolls of nearby village of Deganwy. At the wall’s end, steps descend to the quayside where fishermen sort their nets and squawking seagulls steal scraps.
