Description: Welcome to Characters Teahouse and Hot Stone Restaurant. A secret to be found. Tucked away in a side street we are not easy to find. But when you do you are in for a big surprise. We are different to say the least..You could say quirky and you would be right. Old second hand china, cups, saucers, plates, glasses, furniture etc all bought from charity shops and completely mismatched giving the place character and ambiance hence the name Characters. Food is wholesome and unpretentious ,soups, sandwiches, hand made cakes & scones of different flavours forming the basis of our now famous Afternoon Tea. Accompanied by proper loose leaf tea & coffee of your choice we are open daytime 11am to 4pm Monday to Saturday. In the evening Friday & Saturday serving from 6.30pm to 8.00pm our also famous "Steak on the Stone" Accompanied by "Bring your Own" wine, beer or champagne. Whenever you decide to visit you will be greeted with a big welcome from the staff & management of this lovely family run restaurant..hopefully see you soon. Characters Team

We were very lucky that we got a reservation on a Saturday night. Scott from the Lawton Court hotel booked it for us. We had rib eye steak that comes to you on a sizzling stone and you cook it yourself. It was stunning. The food is beautiful there and if you can make a reservation then I would highly recommend it. Thank you for making our anniversary special. We will come back again. Janice and John xx

Called for lunch when on a day trip to Llandudno. Quirky and elective decor, exquisite mis-matched china, food delicious, broccoli and Stilton soup sublime, staff friendly, warm and welcoming atmosphere and the best kitted out and tastefully decorated toilet ever!! Will definitely return - thank you.

This is a great quality, great value establishment. The afternoon teas are served with loose leaf tea, finger sandwiches and homemade cakes and scones, always high quality, served with a smile. My husband and I have also been to their steak on the stone nights, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend it to anyone looking to experience something new. Be warned you won't want steak anywhere else! We are regulars at this quirky place and nothing is ever too much trouble would highly recommend!

Visited this fine establishment several times during a short stay in llandudno. The trip advisor rating is well deserved as the place is quirky and charming and the quality of the food is outstanding. Staff very attentive and friendly. Will definitely return if we visit the area in the future.
