“plenty of choice”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Pen Cob was always very busy. It seems to be a meeting place for locals as well as visitors. Service was excellent, beer was good and the salmon with hollandaise sauce was delicious.

“Cheap and cheerful - good service”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Visited this soon after it opened in February 2014 - for my daughter's 9th birthday - there were 9 of us and we all had a meal and drink and bill came to £54 a bargain - we lucked out as it was grill night so mixed grills and steaks were on special offer. Only snag was trying to get a table but managed to get our party seated near enough each other. Service was good and food good value. Would go again subject to getting a table! Hope this does not close too many of the other local places in Pwllheli as choice is always nice. Looking forward to trying The Barn in Goal street net. :-D

“Not Amazing”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

So I took my wife and kids here for a meal when we got in we spent 5 minutes looking for a table and when we found one a woman came to clean our table. I had a chicken burger and I asked for a jacket potato with it instead of salad but I got salad. When I told the waitress she just grunted. I will never go here again

“suprised”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

first visit to pen cob and was expecting the usual wetherspoons ie:slightly understaffed, toilets miles away downstairs, and a wait for food however the pub was very busy with few empty tables yet service was quick as was food service. Meals were of good standard and very reasonable with my 14oz steak cooked as i had asked, for a change a chef who knows what m/rare is meant to be.
An overall excellent visit with friendly and efficient staff, will definitely call back in the future.
