AA Pick of the Pubs
Bar menu
Beer festival
Open all year
Dog friendly

A self-guided walk from the pub makes the most of the wooded hills and lanes here above Colwyn Bay. Alternatively, grab a seat in the garden and appreciate the views across to the gigantic headlands of The Little and Great Orme hills jutting out into silvery Liverpool Bay. The interior is a pleasing mix of Edwardian parlour and country inn. Beer festivals are regularly held, complementing the already generous selection of real ales, many from North Wales breweries. The food side of the business is equally appealing, with daily-changing menus offering a liberal choice, from sandwiches upwards. Breeze in with a starter like seared pigeon breast, wild mushroom sausage and beetroot fondant; or charcuterie board for two or three to share. Mains cover all the bases: Sicilian fish stew; slow-braised lamb shoulder; and roasted squash, leek and chestnut Wellington are typical quality choices on the all-day menu. There is a private dining room for small parties.
