Restaurant was fairly busy when we arrived . Upon ordering told that it would be a 35 minute wait for the lamb. Not quite sure why. Had the lamb rump and over a third of my lamb was fat and inedible. The rest of the...More

Was staying in a cottage for a week in Blaneau Ffestiniog and booked here to take my girlfriend for valentines. Literally one of the best meals I've ever had and staff were amazing. Will 100% be booking again when I'm in the area.

Very popular bar amongst all visitors to Betws. Had a great pint of local ale. Food selection is excellent too.

We ate here twice during our recent stay and are regulars when up in BYC. Usual standard and still one of the best places to eat and one of our favourites in the UK! Booking advised - it is very popular.

My wife and I spent a few days in Betws-Y-Coed with friends. We tried this restaurant one evening mainly because we were running late and other places we tried shut early. This was our gain. We had a very nice meal, well cooked, well presented...More

Best to ask the restaurant. I would not think so.
I see steps up to this restaurant, do you have wheelchair access?
