Probably a great place for a drink as it has a great location at the mouth of the estuary into Caernarfon Harbour. Unfortunately we didn't get the impression any love or care was being afforded to the food! We visited at lunchtime and had simple Ham Sandwiches, however the ham was tasteless and I suspect from a local cheapomarket and they took a long time to arrive despite the place not being particularly busy.
So can't give this more than average as something was missing with the food - perhaps the missing A from the pub name was a clue?

We stayed for three nights in the B&B of the hotel arriving on May bank holiday evening. The pub was heaving as the weather was glorious. Still in spite of the crowds we were quickly and efficiently checked in and shown to our room. The young man who checked us in moving his car to allow us to park on the hotel car park as everywhere was very busy and vehicles parked all over.

Our room was comfortable and functional with a nice on suite shower room. The hotel is a former customs house and is built into the town walls. It is ther fore an old building with the problems this can generate. The enterence to the B&B is up a flight of stone steps and would therefore prove problematic for anyone who cannot get up stairs. We were on the first floor and therefore had relatively easily to access..

The hotel as they advertise is "pet friendly inside and out" and we found our dog warmly welcomed by everyone at the hotel. He was welcome not only in our bedroom but in the bar areas downstairs as well as on the terrace outside.

Breakfast was included in our tariff and was served in the Resturant downstairs, again the dog was welcome, from 8am to 10am. A range of food was available and we had Orange Juice, a full Welsh breakfast with toast and coffee on each of our three days we stayed. At this point I should mention the staff, they are superb, very friendly and very helpful willing to go the extra mile to make the guests feel welcome that particularly applies to the breakfast staff but also applies to the excellent bar staff.

The main thing about the Angelsey Armms Hotel is the location. Adjacent to the castle on the front by where the river joins the Menai Straights and the views across to Angelsey are stunning. Unfortunately we arrived in glorious sunshine but by the next day the weather had changed and we had rain and showers for the next two days before leaving again in glorious sunshine.

The hotel is ideally placed for visiting this part of Wales and we visited Llanberis and the Lake Railway and Slate Museum, Porthmadog, Cricieth, and Phewelli in spite of the weather.

The hotel also serves food in the Resturant bar and outside on the terrace and has an excellent menu.

This is a great hotel and anything it lacks in style it makes up for in spad s as one of the fri milestone hotels we have stayed in and it's great location. We will definitely visit again hopefully in good weather.

Worst experience ever. We were one of a number of tables outside this evening that complained to landlord about a large group of what looked to be very underage drinkers launching bottle after bottle (4 bottles in 10 minutes whilst we were watching) into the estuary whilst dancing on tables to loud music. The music on its own wasnt actually a problem to us but it may well have been to others. And I drank underage so again, on its own, not the worst crime in the world. But what was hard to swallow (apart from lobbing glass bottles into the sea) was the fact the landlord shrugged off everyone's complaints and carried on regardless despite the broad as daylight issue it was causing the majority of his customers. The service was so bad I couldn't even buy a pint of dark fruits to launch over the halfwitt that thought throwing glass into sea was ok (I kid you not, that was my plan) I couldn't even get anyone at the bar to acknowledge our existence, let alone serve anyone - poor guy in front of me had been waiting 15 mins for a drink and had sat down and given up - he was the only one waiting and with 3 people behind the bar doing very little???! A joke. And what we had of the food wasn't great either.
We left our food and just under half a pint each (unheard of!) and so in summary, highly recommend NEVER EVER VISITING THIS AWFUL PUB EVER

Staying with family for a few days. Came here for breakfast as they allow dogs in too. Gorgeous cooked breakfast and lovely staff. Fabulous views over the straits. Gave us a discount as staying in the travel lodge which we didn’t know about in advance.
Will come again

We used this as a base as we wanted to explore Anglesey, but wanted to see the Castle in Caernarfon.
Arriving later afternoon after doing part of the coastal walk we were checked in pretty quick by the bar man. The room had a comfortable bed larger than average size TV and en suite facilities.
Not the Ritz, but comfortable and clean enough. Seeing it was pet friendly there wasn't a smell of Dog in the room, which is a bonus. Our dog had gone to sleep even before we left her in the room to go for a well earned pint after the long walk.
Location is brilliant a short walk takes you to the centre and loads of pubs and shops.
Great views over the straights towards Anglesey and of the Castle.
Will be going back in the summer to see more.
Breakfast was lovely and the family welcomed our dog and were very accommodating..
