Everytime we come to wales, we come here for a meal, food is always fresh and hot, generous portions. Sometimes a little wait but its worth it.

We stopped at The Silver Fountain for a quick dinner after driving from London. Unfortunately the Sunday Roast option wasn't available so instead we had the Beef and Guinness pie with mash and vegetables. The place could do with a bit of a makeover but the hostess was lovely and gave us some good inside tips of what to do... More

We had scaled Snowdon and were in need of some good wholesome food. We past a few places and came upon The Silver Fountain which from the outside didn't look overly appealing ( don't let that put you off ) upon walking in to a warm welcome we were amazed by the extent of dishes on the menu that all...

Visited the pub for a late lunch. The place was very full, only a few tables available. Greeted straight away by the waitress who also doubled up managing the bar. I would recommend the owners find an additional member of staff who would be on standby, to call in when necessary, as this lady was frantically busy, however, handled things... More

Had just scaled Snowdon and was starving so stopped at the first pub we came too, hoping for a good pub menu. Looked shabby from the outside so was a little sceptical but found the welcome very warm and the menu very enticing, I ordered the lamb shank which was absolutely amazing, good potion and all freshly cooked, the vegetables...

The best cottage pie I've ever tasted & I didn't know it was even possible to get such flavoursome carrots! We waited 30 minutes for our meal - definitely a good sign as everything was piping hot & freshly cooked. It takes a special kind of talent to make ordinary 'everyday' food exceptional & that's what we got at the... More
