Old-fashioned values in the shadow of Caernarfon Castle

Character oozes from the very fabric of this ancient gabled inn, one of the oldest in Wales (built 1522). Relax with a pint of local ale in the fire-warmed, low-ceilinged rooms strewn amidst beams and struts rescued from old ships. Meat and other products are generally local, and dishes from the long menu might include smoked black and white pudding; Chef's special lamb pie; goats' cheese and chorizo-stuffed chicken breast; and slow-cooked braised beef. The well-proportioned bedrooms are ideal for those wishing to stay on and explore Mount Snowdon, the Lleyn Peninsula or catch the Welsh Highland Railway.
