Very pleasant evening spent with family in this busy pub. Friendly staff, reasonable food and nice selection of wine. Food nicely presented and piping hot. Free WiFi. Nearly 20 years since our last visit and not disappointed.

Thank you for taking the time to review your evening in Gelerts Bar. The food and wine we serve in the bar is the same as in our restaurant but in a more informal environment. Please don't leave it 20 years before coming back!

Staff were excellent - really good service in the restaurant for breakfast and dinner, and the breakfast selection is top notch. Food was good, and the room comfortable and quiet. Nothing I can think of which I would change.

Thank oehugh

Thank you so much for the five star review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your meals and the service in our restaurant and that the room was to your liking. Please do stay with us again when you are next visiting Snowdonia.
