yBooked a table for 5, time given was 6.45pm. waited 20 minutes before someone came to us for drinks order , another 20 mins when the drinks arrived! It was 8.40 when our meals were placed on the table!! AND to top that my burger and chips were un-edible. I had to send the plate back, ..the bun was dry and hard, coleslaw was discoloured and the chips limp dry and hard around the edges...I can only assume my meal must have been standing under a heat lamp, as two of our other meals were too, but they were too hungry to waste time sending their meal back! I had to go and find someone to return my meal, it came back within 10 minutes!! STILL dry and meat very dry but the chips had been changed. This should never happen customers should not be expected to wait so long and then leave the table to look for attendance. Our waitress was very sweet but she was under a lot of pressure...we could see that!! This is a gem of a place and it would be a shame for it to suffer through obvious staffing problems!

Called in for lunch with the wife, great staff and lovely atmosphere, prices are reasonable and the update on the place has been done tastefully and done very well. Has some great views, well worth a visit. we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon at the Dinornen Arms.

Had a birthday meal last Saturday. The property has been renovated to a very high standard. Staff are very attentive, prices reasonable. My husband wasn’t happy with his steak and was offered an alternative, but every one else enjoyed their meal. We will return if only for the stunning location and the views across the Welsh hills

All Brunning and Price outlets in N.Wales work well, they have a formula that works,food and decor interchangeable but none the worse for that, the refurbished Dinorben Arms, slots seamlessly into the chain.
