“See you then! ”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

Only stopped for a drink on a quick trip to Dolgellau. Upon arrival at the bar I was greeted by a surly member of staff who did nothing but moan about being ill to whoever would listen! I was served my drinks pleasantly enough but lo and behold when we were leaving so was she!!!! Not too ill to smoke a fag on the way home!!!!

“Good service but food lets it down”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We visited with friends on a Saturday night and whilst the service as good, the food was pretty poor. A couple of us ordered the fish and chips, the fish was dry and the chips were a bit limp and not properly fried, definitely not crispy.

The boys ordered the beef and ale pie which was a bit better. It is a shame as this is a historic Inn which does need some refurbishment in the dining room as it is very tired and dated. If the food had been good, you would have looked past this.

There isn't that much choice in Dolgellau but I would only go here again as a last resort.

“Reasonably priced pub grub”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Standard pub chain grub fare. Decor is a little tired, but food arrived promptly and was tasty and reasonable value, staff friendly and great spot right in the centre of town.
