When I asked to change my pint because it was flat, the guy behind the bar said that he can't change it . It wasn't my favorite pub, now definitely will not go there

On a larger scale, i can't really fault this pub, a great pint, but the overall cleanliness is a little bit off, feels like it could do with a clean, and the lavatories could do with upgrading, but still ignore this, it's still one of the greats.

I walked inside to find a dining area & attractive seating areas. Staff were friendly & the place not hugely busy. I ordered a large Pino Grigio... More

Beer was fine and reasonably priced, but with music blaring out in an almost empty bar (pointless!) which needs a good clean it is not somewhere I'd be keen to visit again. For those who like such things there is free pool offered on a Monday.

I have NEVER EVER felt so unwelcome in all my life, rude, intimidating and aggressive. Locals only welcome. Luckily we didn't let it spoil our weekend in Llandudno which has many many lovely places.

This pub is a dump. It needs a good clean and repainted. The clientele are very noisy and rude. I would not go in again and would not recommend.
