First sight of outside of building...tatty old ramp up to front door....door on right has big chunk of rotted wood missing, paint in very poor repair...first impressions not so good.
Second impression, on entering...the smell of damp/boiled cabbage/gas leak/elderly Aunt's house....not a good start!!
First table offered by a draughty window on a cold evening - fair play, the staff gave us another warmer table, after some air sucking through teeth from head waitress , saying that they had lots more people booked in...we were the only one s in there!!!
Once the food arrived, all feelings of trepidation disappeared, smoked haddock chowder and parmesan topping - heavenly!! celeriac soup a dream too!
Main course, steak cooked to perfection,chicken dish a bit on the dry side and bland sauce....
overall, top marks to the young ladies waiting table, lots of smiles and very friendly....
evening slightly spoiled by the 'Peroni' Cheshire set on the adjoining table...loud and brash!!!

We went to this restaurant with family and friends on a Tuesday evening when they would not normally have Ben open. As we were such a large party the opened for us. As usual the fod and service were very good. It's a bit tucked away in Y Felinhelli but we really like it there. I sometimes go there for lunch with my Mum and daughters and the standard is always good. It is a bit more expensive than some but worth it I think. The food is well presented and the chef clearly takes pride in his cooking.

Booked the Hen Lechan for 11 people for my husband's recent sixtieth birthday, having had two previous good experiences dining here. We were not disappointed - everybody enjoyed the food and the excellent service.

I had asked in advance for a particular layout of table so that we could all chat together rather than be on a refectory type long table where those at either end can hardly see each other let alone talk to each other and this was not a problem.

I would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant to others and will go back again as soon as possible.
