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

“'Simply The Best'”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

After having lunch with the girls here and being very impressed with the food and service, I decided to book a table for the 'Steak on a hot stone' night. It was my partners birthday ( I took a birthday cake for afters) and five of us dined. I had Prawn Cocktail to start, very retro, very delicious!! I then had the Rump of lamb, it was divine, served with honey roasted veg, dips and the tastiest baked potato ever!! The hot stone stays hot for ages ensuring that you can cook your meat exactly how you like it!! The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are happy and cater for every need. After we ate, the lights went off and out came the cake......everyone sang happy birthday!!!! A truly enjoyable evening was had by all. Well worth a visit, day or night. You will not be disappointed!!

“Exactly What we wanted”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Visited on a Friday in July after a local suggested it to us, what a find. So many of these places are disapointing, even when the food is better than just average they've crammed in so many tables that its worse than a budget airline. Not Charecters though, plenty of space,great food, excellent srvice and reasonable prices. It really made our day and our trip to LLandudno.

“Fantastic! 10/10”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Was absolutely delighted when my mum took me here. Your instantly hit with the beautiful decor. Such a unique little place. Ordered the bubble gum ice cream and had a great selection of toppings, it was so delicious and gave you that sickly feeling that where you think couldn't eat anymore. Which is exactly what I had hoped for. The flavours were marvellous and i will definitely be coming back. Thank you.
