We regularly visit as the food is ok and affordable. The tables are often dirty and need clearing of dirty crockery and glasses. Ladies Toilets are disgusting and there's normally some blocked and mess on the floor. Needs sorting Out!

Rhyl has it's problems but this place at least raises the bar for this town. Some good ales always available and a standard Wetherspoons menu. If you find yourself in this town you could do worse than call in, a lot worse!
