“Awful food, awful service”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Starters were bad, mains were worst and tasted like poor canteen food. Waitress and atmosphere was bad, other diners were complaining. Waitress was spraying tables and setting them up noisily for breakfast while we and other guests were still eating. Awful value for money on that basis. What a shame.

“Gorgeous food”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I had lamb with braised red cabbage and leek dauphinoise potatoes. The lamb was nice but the potatoes were absolutely gorgeous. The vegetables were lovely, the sauce was rich and complimented the meat well. I went back the next day just for pudding - a beautiful sticky toffee pudding which was light and nicely spiced. Good service and a nice aatmosphere.

“Brilliant food and lovely staff”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Been a few times now and I would fully recommend. Fresh and very high quality ingredients and desserts to die for. The staff have always been extremely accommodating and attentive. Also the children's menu was reasonable and had a nice selection. Would definitely return well worth the money.

“2 great meals - good service and friendly staff too”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

We were visiting Snowdonia for my Mother in Law's 75th birthday, so wanted somewhere nice to eat that wasn't too stuffy. She's also a very fussy eater! We checked out the menu at The Grill during our first afternoon, and booked a table for that night. It was a good choice - the food was well cooked and tasty, with good portion sizes. Our waitress was particularly friendly and good fun; aware when we needed something but not too invasive. The Welsh lamb was beautiful (as you'd expect!) The only slight negative was temperature, as it was so hot in there due to having been very warm and sunny during the day.

So good was it that, rather than risk spoiling our visit by going somewhere inferior, we ate there again the second evening and had another lovely experience with great service.

Recommended, and I would definitely eat there again next time I'm in the area (which will be sooner, rather than later!)
