Called in here lunchtime on a Sunday for a meal, bar wasn't very busy, so we thought we wouldn't have long to wait for our food, wrong, one young lad behind the bar taking orders and serving drinks and a waitress of about ten years old carrying desserts. We ordered just two meals, after half an hour of waiting our... More

I try to avoid leaving negative feedback, but I think it is important to be honest when leaving a review. We took a walk over to Trefriw with friends and our children and called into the Ship as the first pub we tried was closed. Getting prams in and parking them up was difficult as there's not much room. Unwilling... More

We came here for what we hoped was a lovely Sunday dinner (in the evening). I ordered the beef roast and my partner the lamb roast. We were informed that this was the last remaining of the lamb. In hindsight that should have rang alarm bells! When the food arrived we had a few slices of over cooked meat and... More

We have stayed in Trefriw on a week basis for the last 3 years and always ensure we eat here at least twice. The menu is well thought out and plenty of specials also. I have enjoyed the pepperpot beef on two occasions and also love the mushrooms in garlic and stilton. The atmosphere is very welcoming and staff and... More

We had not been aware of the Old Ship Inn before we booked to stay in the Ty Cornel B&B however on our first walk through the village we saw the menu and thought that we definitely had to try it. A lovely variety of different traditional and non-traditional options! Couldn't have been happier with our meal and drinks. Friendly... More
