Visited this pub/restaurant many times over the years but over my last couple of visits I feel the quality of the food is beginning to lack its usual excellent standards. The chips were overcooked, pale and quite tasteless. Salad is now minimal and overall with all foods finesse has gone in presentation. The ambience is good and friendly and staff... More

What a lovely place! Myself and a group of 12 girls were staying in a cottage near the pub, we had organised a treasure hunt around the village and asked the lady behind the bar if we could hide one of the clues in the pub. When the groups arrived we ordered a few drinks and were amazed at the... More

Best pub food around for families, couples, singles, lovely cosy friendly atmosphere, just how pubs used to be. Always something amazing on the 'specials' board, desserts to die for and the fabulous free play bus outside for the grandchildren as well as a play area and picnic tables for outdoor eating in the good weather!

Staying in the east of Anglesey we were looking for somewhere to visit for an evening meal and having read some mixed reviews on this premises we took a chance as it was nearest to our accommodation. The locals were welcoming and the premises inviting. We chose one of the dining areas where there was a party of 6 dining... More

We haven't visited The Pilot Boat in many years but the food did not disappoint! I had the Scampi and my other half had Steak. Both were gorgeous and very filling and the chips were just as good as I remember!

Very busy at lunchtime despite being the end of October. Friendly and efficient staff. The food is typical pub grub but was cooked and presented well. Portion size is generous!

The food is basic and not very impressive. I had the lasagne (microwaved) which had no flavour and thick sheets of rubbery pasta sheets. It was topped with a white sludge and looked like it had been finished under the grill. The frozen chips made the experience worse. The seating reminded me of a 70's cafe and the place seems...

From the main road The Pilot Boat doesn't look up to much but don't be put off, it's really very good. Sunday lunch was proper stuff and served piping hot! Many other choices of food were available from the menu and the specials board, but roast beef and Yorkshire is really the only way to go on Sunday Lunch. Nice... More
