The pub is a few minutes' walk into the town centre from Beaumaris Castle on a side street. You can see it from the main street and there are several other places around it. We chose it because it was one of the oldest pubs in town, dating to the early 1400s. It had a couple of rooms or "snugs", with banquette and stools around round tables. Low ceilings and the ever-present gambling machines in corners, which is a pity, really. Signs posted advertised a couple of quiz nights.
The food was standard pub type food and not bad. Atmosphere was comfortable and the barman was friendly.
Favorite Dish: fish and chips, pies, burgers
This place has been around since 1410 right down the street from Beaumaris Castle.
It is a great locals pub. The food served in the restaurant is timeless and plentiful, a bit of a sixties feel to the menu with Prawn cocktail, Roast Beef, Roast Chicken and Salmon but they were all served with heaps of plain cooked vegetables and were good value for money.
There are quite a few good traditional pubs, and a few gourmet style restaurants in and around the town.
This old pub just off Castle St is a great place to get something to eat or just to call in for a drink or 3.
The food is good but nothing Fancy here, Like it says in the menu, If you don't like something sell it to somebody in the bar or feed it to a 4 legged friend.
The menu consists mainly of just your normal pub grub, Cheese Burger and chips, Chicken burger and chips, Sandwiches, baked potatoes etc at reasonable prices.
The Pub is Among the oldest in Wales dating from around 1410, It is said that two of Oliver Cromwell's men were coutmartialled for being drunk in this Inn. The wall paintings in the Building date back to 1610.
My husband and I ate here in July 2008.
We both had starters and they were fairly average - I had smoked salmon with salad (brown edges had not been removed) and he had moules mariniere which were very small and the sauce tasted mainly of wine with not much other flavour.
Our main courses were okay, him game, me fish, but the veg were overcooked and so was my fish (halibut steak), however the accompanying sauces were very good, creamy mushroom for him and turmeric for me. The overall presentation of the food was a little 'dated'(paprika sprinkles on the edges of the plate and rather large portions (some would say this is an advantage!) but generally nice.
We were too full for dessert and opted instead for amarettos.
We had a bottle of white wine with our meal and the bill came to £72 which was reasonable.
The ambiance is great as is the decor and the staff are efficient and very friendly and I would visit again for this reason.
There is nothing to beat a picnic on the sea shore or in the local park. Buy cheese, bread, fruit and your own choice of drink in one of the local shops and pick out your own favoutirte spot! Do try a local Welsh cheese - delicious.
