Our View

Following an injection of light and space from a sympathetic refurbishment, including the addition of a large garden room, this former wheelwright’s cottage, with low beams, winter log fires and masses of summer garden colour, has been opened up, creating a spacious and relaxing setting for dining and drinks. Welsh ales might come from Conwy, Porthmadog or Caerphilly. For a cychwyn, or starter, maybe Welsh marmalade gin-cured salmon with horseradish rémoulade, soft boiled quail’s egg and lumpfish caviar. From the sea (o’r môr) try pan-seared stone bass served with a fragrant Vietnamese style broth of king prawns, red chilli and garlic, vermicelli noodles, pak choi and crispy seaweed; or from the land (o’r tir) venison and field mushroom baked suet pudding. A sheltered terrace runs around the pub so there is always a spot to catch the sun.

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.
