“nice place- no food!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

my family and i went on the 4th june 2013
we went to the bar and started reading out the food on the specials board- to be told whilst we were reading it out to one another that they didn't have it on the menu!! why not rub it out when you run out of supplies?
so we took a look at the standard menu and again we started reading out food on that one to be told very much the same.
so we all left,
such a shame as was a lovely day outside and would have stayed for quite a while.

Stayed June 2013, travelled with family

We stayed at the Victoria several nights and largely enjoyed ourselves.
The Victoria is a pub with bedrooms and the rooms are decorated to a high standard.
The pub is hugely successful and was full every evening between 6pm and 9pm, I imagine that they serve about 100 meals in an evening, with more on a really busy day. The food is good honest stuff and plenty of it. The Robinson's beer is satisfactory at best.

Breakfast was slow but very good and passed the quality bacon test.

The staff are excellent and they dealt very well with a couple of problems that we had.

Room Tip: Rooms 4 and 5 overlook a side road and so are slightly quieter

We'd decided to stay at The Victoria for a couple of days and do some hard trekking up on the mountains.
We've always intended to stay there for many years and when the time came we were ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED with one exception - restaurant management.

We booked a table for dinner after a gruelling day on Saturday in the restaurant. My partner was stuck in an alcove and the table itself was in a corner with little room. We decided to move to the cheerful bar where we enjoyed our meal.
On Sunday morning we had the restaurant for breakfast except all guests were crammed onto one side of the dining room .......again with little space beteen tables -----the remainder of the restaurant was unused.
A little common sense and foresight could have saved this blip on an otherwise joyous weekend away.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent ensuite newly re-furbished

This is a pub full of charm and populated by very friendly staff. There is a good selection of drinks, including three Robinson cask ales. Although not a fan of the premium beer I enjoyed the rather good pale ale and found the IPA not bad either (just had to return the next day to check quality - repeatedly).

We stayed for Sunday lunch in the restaurant, which we thought to be reasonable value. The lamb was a tad overdone for my liking but the portions were good and tasty. The home made hummus starter was excellent and my wife reported the salmon was spot on.

The service was a little slow but that is hardly surprising given the crowds that descended for the Bank Holiday weekend. The bar was packed yet the staff remained cheerful...

Love the beer garden with its children's play ground. Plenty of seats and tables. The toilets were clean and in good order. You can get cash from an ATM inside (£1.50 charge). There is a large car park across the road - it's needed!

I enjoyed our couple of visits and will visit again next time I'm in the area. Might even be tempted to stay overnight so I can continue taste testing the pale ale.

We visited the Victoria inn whilst we were camping and judging from the beautiful building and scenery we had high hopes for good food. How wrong we were.
We had our order taken by a very pleasant and helpful person. The food came out the kitchen within 5 minutes to our surprise. Some might say that's great service but when the food arrived you could tell a lot if it had been cooked by a microwave. The portion sizes were ok, however I think they should cut back on the chip portion, far too many and it looked they were trying to fill the plate. My 3 yr old had a cheeseburger meal, the beans had to have been cooked in the microwave with the little pot they came in as myself and my son burnt our fingers. :0(
I had the rack of ribs special, it tasted like one that you cook in its bag from Aldi!!!! It didn't come with corn or coleslaw as read, instead it was with chips and a shed load of iceberg lettuce and a tomato and a piece of cucumber, basically thrown together. All in all the meal was £50 including drinks. However I feel it was extremely over priced for a meal I could have got in wetherspoons!!!! Cheap chips and cheap produce. :0(

I stayed 2 nights 10 & 11 May 2013 - stayed many times before and everything good again. It is a lively pub with good quality food and drinks and a lovely garden area. Rooms are nice and breakfast is very good. If you are the kind of person bothered by normal pub noise at and after closing time (as some who have reviewed before have said) then please stay elsewhere or "live and let live" (or do as I did and stay in the bar and talk to the locals!!). Nice staff, nice location, an all round nice pub with food, rooms and atmosphere. I will be back.

Stayed there a couple of nights ago prior to a car event at Llanbedr airfield.
Was very pleasantly surprised considering the very reasonable price, £45 for b&b!
Spacious bedroom with enormous double bed, spacious en-suite with bath/shower. Spotlessly clean. Tea and coffee making faciities, decent quality LCD TV with local channels and even free wifi throughout the pub and rooms, which beats many 5* hotels I've stayed in!

Evening meal was decent pub grub, nothing fancy, but generous portions. Unicorn bitter was very nice with it.
Breakfast was also pretty good and they accomodated us by serving it at 7:45am rather than the 8:30 which is their normal start time.

All in all, a very pleasant place to stay, eat and drink in. Will definitely return if I go to another event in the area.
