“Cheap and cheerful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We ate here on a recent trip to Caernarfon, the food was as you would expect, basic but functional and the garden outside was lovely to sit in on a Friday evening after a long day of travel. The bar staff were friendly and we had no issues.

“Shame ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

Have visited a few weatherspoon. Across the country. This one needs a kick up the bum. It's a hit and miss pub. Tables covered in dirty plates and glasses. Sticky bar. Some of the staff need a smile mask. But if you want cheap food slapped on a plate. And cheap drink slopped on the bar than this is the place for you. shame I suppose that it takes a lot of money so it does not have to bother with the basics. Still its better than that God awful table table in the harbour.

“Very good food & drink, great prices and a smile from staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

We ducked in for dinner and a pint and really enjoyed the range of ales on tap and it is hard to beat Welsh chilli sausages & mash for 6.99 and a hot chicken curry for 6.99 plus pints for under 3.00. The staff were very friendly and even offered my wife a taste of the ales before we chose. The tables were clean, the food came promptly served by friendly staff and was very tasty with good servings. Bottom line, great meal with good ale at great prices.

“race day sunday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

very busy with competitors from the race for life day but the staff coped very well

standard wetherspoons food but at 5.39 for a skinny chicken burger (a whole chicken breast) including a drink cant be bad

only objection i had was that the staff were talking amongst themselves in welsh so being an english speaker had no ideas of what they were saying and as a result we got one of our meals incorrect
