The Cliffs has been getting some poor reviews since its major refurb and re-opening this summer. As a frequent holidaymaker who has known the place for many years I was keen to investigate. It seems there were some mistakes early on that have now been rectified. Gossip was circulating (in a Welsh village? Surely not :-) that locals had been... More

I stayed in Morfa Nefyn with three friends after spending the day walking up Snowdon. We needed a good place to chat and drink a pint or two of real ale. The owner of the hotel we were staying at mentioned that the Cliffs Inn might be a good option. I telephoned to check what real ales were available and... More

We visited three times in a week long stay in the area. Once fir a drink once to eat and a third time to eat but changed our minds. The decor is modern and the views are lovely, but the place is crying out for someone to coordinate and manage the place. Some staff were not sure of opening times... More

Visited back in September on our yearly trip to Nefyn, must say new ownership have certainly done a great job with refurbishment. Arrived with the a group of 8 and had a great evening, food was good and served promptly even though it was busy. Atmosphere is nice and staff very polite. Only negative is that you have get up...

We went here for lunch when we arrived. What a lovely place. It has just been refurbished and is spotless. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food was superb as was the service which came with a smile. Lunch overlooking the sea. What a great welcome to Morfa Nefyn. They do a good pint of Amstel too! Definitely the... More

Last minute decision to go here after a long drive. Good welcome, quick but not rushed service and good selection of beers for pre meal drink. Food was sensational. Calamari starter followed by haddock and chips. Best food I've had for a very long time. Others in our group all agreed. Great portions, superbly cooked and simply presented. I understand... More

Excellent Sunday Roast at a reasonable price. We visited early October. We sat in the restaurant which had the most incredible view of the bay through a large picture window, simply stunning. Our meal was fabulous. The waitress was first class,very attentive. We didn't have a starter but the rest if the party did. Two of us are gluten free... More

Firstly lets get this straight, The Cliffs does NOT have a new owner. It's the same owners who had it when it started to go downhill years ago, they have now invested some money in a pretty decent refurb. I reviewed The Cliffs when it first opened in July and had to give it the benefit of doubt as it... More

So disappointed. Used to love the Cliffs, the food was second to none. A fancy refurb and I guess new management does not disguise the downturn in quality. The menu is extremely limited. I was surprised how quickly our food was served, until I cut into my burger, it was cold in the middle and raw! The few chips accompanying... More

The Cliffe has changed a great deal, it has moved from a fairly ordinary and tired establishment to be a something special, with a great atmosphere, wonderful staff and a small menu of delightful food. The chef has conquered the kitchen, serving up the best food that I have tasted in all the Llyn establishments. It is a great pleasure... More
