“FIRST CLASS CUISINE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

We had never been to this restaurant before so didn't know what to expect,
We decided to go early between six and seven for a set menu called the early bird with a choice of either a two course or three course meal.
How pleasantly surprised we were when our meal arrived, my husband had a starter and main course I had a main and a pudding.We both had the steak and ale pie (Home cooked) with piping hot fresh vegetables and home made chips both in separate containers.
The staff were very friendly and attentive & the young water had a cheeky sense of humour which made us feel very welcome and at ease.
This is a place we will definitely go to again when visiting my family who live in the surrounding area

“Off the beaten track”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Had a very tasty lunch, mussels were very good.
Calamari batter a bit heavy weight.
Bread and butter pudd a bit stodgy. Otherwise good.
The waiter, a well known face in the Portmadoc area! was great.
Will be back

“Fantastic evening ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

After a dissapointing evening the night before where we were golden fleeced, we had an amazing meal at Y Sgwar. Clearly a lot of effort has gone into ensuring a fantastic dining experience is had by all, everything from the wine, the service, the atmosphere, and the food was all brilliantly presented. You will pay a bit more, but rest assured that it's worth every penny. We each had a different main course and everyone was delighted with their choice. Would definitely go back if I was in the area.

“Nice start to the holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Myself and my boyfriend were looking for somewhere to eat on our first night on holiday and glad we found this place. The food was very tasty and the service attentive. It is quite pricey, but what you'd expect given the quality. Will definitely come back again.

“Smashing steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

It is not often that I have a simple meal of steak and chips. But when I order such a meal I am often disappointed. Not in this case. The cut of meat was first class. The way it had been cooked was exceptional. No frills. Just perfect. Well done!

Thank you for your review. We are really glad that you enjoyed your meal. We use an excellent butcher from Bala, TJ Roberts, who should also take credit for you comments. We have all our meat from him and he never lets us down, his meat is first class and of course it does help that our chef's are skilled in cooking the steak to your liking.
many thanks again,
Lorraine
