“Great pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

This is a great pub. The place looks good since its refurb and staff are excellent. Always good entertainment on a weekend and a lovely little beer garden for those hot summer days. Great food at a very reasonable price. Must visit for a sunday carvery!

“Promising start.........terrible food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

On a wet Wednesday, waiting for the showing at the local cinema to start, we ventured here for some food. We were very warmly welcomed, with an apology for the wait ( half of Wales had decided to seek sanctuary from the rain at the same time). We were advised that there would be a wait for the food before ordering,which was fine ( a wait often means freshly prepared food!) However on arrival my husbands order was wrong ( beans not cheese ) on advising this we were told "well it'll be another 15mins to do it again" so we opted to have the beans scrapped off, which still took 10mins! My sons Beef Madras was reminiscent of a vesta curry only not as tasty. My masala was watery and my daughters spaghetti bolognese was bereft of any sauce but salt in bucket loads used to cook the pasta. At over £30 this was pricey for such poor quality food. I would have discussed this with the management at the time, had we not been late for the cinema. The building is lovely as are the staff, can't help thinking a bit more effort with the food and this place would be really excellent

“Best Pub in Pwllheli”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013 via mobile

I disagree with the last review, not sure if this person has been in the right pub! Personally i've always had an excellent time here, its a great pub, welcoming staff and 5 star rating food and its great to sit in the large beer garden on a sunny day. They have an eclectic mix of live english and welsh bands and DJ's. It is a Welsh pub promoting the welsh culture, but the pub is located in a predominately Welsh area! I personally have had no problems. I encourage everyone to visit and have a great experience.

“Great pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

Not at all anti english and does not have the odour that pervades 'The Mitre' Reasonable food at fair prices. This pub and The Boathouse are the best in Pwllheli.
