Very friendly staff who were happy to offer free puds when two of our party found the meal they had ordered was not up to expectations.

We visited this establishment around 10 years ago and ended up walking out due to very poor service. It has taken us this long to revisit and I am glad we did. The site is in a good location and looks as if it would be nice to visit on a summers evening. The restaurant style is very basic and... More

15 of us ate here last night, it was absolutely fabulous. The food was plentiful and delicious. The beef fell apart, turkey was very tasty, the veg and gravy was plentiful. Dessert was to die for!!! All the staff were very helpful. Thank you very much to Kate and team for a lovely night.

There is a busy and popular restaurant, but we ate in the bar, which welcomed our well behaved collie with a bowl of water. Some of the children in the restaurant were less well behaved, which is unfortunately becoming the norm these days.Good choice of Sunday roasts, we had beef and turkey, there's a sharing platter if you fancy a...

Been here quite a few times, best steaks ever! Cooked to perfection. Also the whitebait/blanchebait is amazing. I Like the decor it also has a nice atmosphere, cozy areas too. The conservatory is a bit cold/drafty in colder months, but the area with the fireplace is the nicest. Local ales, and tasty old mute ciders.

We've eaten at the Plas Derwen a few times over the years but never stayed overnight. Our room in the main building was clean and comfortable with a bit of character (slightly uneven floors and original fireplace) but everything we needed including free wifi. Our room faced the main road but we weren't disturbed by traffic noise and on the... More

Poor customer care. Service was so slow that our lunch arrived 2 hours after our table booking. No apology and at times felt we were invisible! Starters and lunch were nice but everyone fed up by the time our food arrived. would not recommend.

We ate here on two consecutive evenings - the food is lovely, the staff are very pleasant and helpful and it is not overly expensive.
