We didn't stay at the Hotel but wanted somewhere nice to celebrate my brother's 51st birthday, we stayed in Porthmadog and asked a lovely lady in one of the charity shops if she could recommend anywhere for a nice meal, she said she lived in Cricceith and recommended this Hotel. We arrived at 5.30pm and to my 82year old Father's disgust learnt that the Hotel doesn't serve food until 6.30pm, we suggested a little walk and he replied 'I've come here to eat not walk', we ignorned his comment and walked the very short distance to the Hotel, we sat outside and had drinks and admired the beautiful view, the weather was glorious and in a short time we chose from the menu, my Father commented that the only thing he liked from the menu was fish and chips, 'so i'll have to have that, again!' (my sister had spoken to the staff and they said they would have our food ready for 6.30 prompt). When we walked in the dining room we were amazed the decor was lovely and the staff very attentive, our food arrived prompt as promised, we literally had only just sat down! All our meals were beautifully presented and within a few minutes my Father commented that 'this is the best fish and chips I have ever had' we nearly fell off our chairs, it's not very often he says anything like that. As for the other meals they too were fantastic, my steak was cooked to perfection and I can honestly say "it was the best steak I had ever had" and I have had some steaks! My sister had a fish dish (whitebait etc.,) and loved it, my brother had lamb, loved it too and my Mum bless her who had been embarassed by Dad's earlier comments, really enjoyed the fish and chips too. The 3x cooked chips tasted really nice and everything went well. When we got back to the Caravan in Porthmadog my Dad wouldn't shut up about his fastastic fish and chips.
