My husband & I had two nights of lovely food on 24th & 25th November. Anthea the manager was delightful and had an amazing memory for recalling a person’s choice of alcoholic beverage. We would highly recommend anyone staying in Betws y Coed area to...visit this lovely genuinely old pub that has accommodation too. We would be surprised if anyone didn’t enjoy the experienceMore

A coaching inn from 1600’s serving quality traditional food done to a high standard. We stumbled across it by accident walking to Swallow Falls. It was by far the tastiest food in Betws-Y-Coed - the lamb Wellington and julienne filler steak Stroganoff were fantastic. Due...to the quality, the price was also a little higher than many other places, but wasn’t unreasonable. The decor inside is very traditional with stone floors, wooden beams and exposed stone walls, with traditional pub furnishings and some references to its past as a coaching Inn. My only complaint (and the only reason I didn’t give five stars) was that our seats were wobbly and uncomfortable. When I asked a member of staff if we could possibly switch tables, she was a little brusque and didn’t give me the opportunity to explain our request, simply stating that all other tables were spoken for (despite some remaining empty for the duration of our stay)More

We were staying in Betws y Coed and as car parking is very limited - 4/5 cars, we decided to walk here. About 0.7 of a mile - c 25 minutes from the centre of the village. We had a very prompt welcome and were...escorted to a nice window table. The restaurant has a very nice relaxing ambience and we really enjoyed our white wine and mains - all fairly priced. It is imperative that you book in advance - in the summer I would think c 2 weeks would be wise. We would have returned the following evening but unsurprisingly we couldn't get a table. Well worth a visit.More

We found this by accident, and were so glad we did ! The restaurant is absolutely fantastic as are the staff and the meals are second to none.

The food was fantastic, in particular the game pie. We all enjoyed our meals. Friendly staff and a beautiful 16th coach house and having checked out the accommodation wish we booked in here, will do next time. Very Covid secure. Great night out.

Visited with my wife and teenage grandson whilst on holiday. The food was faultless and the service matched. Shown to our table on arrival and made to feel very welcome no pressure on time which led to a relaxed final night in the area. We'll...done to front of house and kitchenMore

A 16th century coaching inn, very quaint and old worlde. Extensive menu including vegetarian options. We had the Lamb Shank and the Mushroom Stroganoff and both were delicious. Portion sizes were good. It was very busy on the Saturday night we went and booking in...advance is essential. Service was friendly but busy and we would love to go back if we are ever in the area again.More

Tremendous menu with lots of choice throughout. Very helpful front of house staff who were easily able to offer vegan options to supplement the menu, albeit the only dessert option was sorbet (which was a bit disappointing given the non vegan options - perhaps something...to improve upon). The quality and cooking of the food was excellent throughout and the portion sizes were generous. COVID guidelines evident, re table distancing, masks and sanitiser available. So all in all a very enjoyable experience; so we would highly recommend.More

Two things haven't changed since we last visited Ty Gwyn in 2015: the excellent food and the pre-dinner phone call to say that the credit card machine had gone down, so please bring cash in case it's still not working later... necessitating a trip to...the local Betws cash machine... Lucky that we were within walking distance and the rain was taking a short break. Once we arrived for dinner, there was no mention of faulty cash machines so I guess it was working again. We still paid in cash since we now had it on us. The food is still up there with the best in Betws with huge Conwy Bay Oysters, impossibly succulent rack of lamb and the subtlest lemon posset, but please please get yourself a reliable credit card machine, and a printed wine list would be nice too although I appreciate the menus were printed on demand.More
