user reviews of the Newborough Arms, Bontnewydd

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Friendly atmosphere serving good traditional pub grub. Real ales, prompt waiter service and good value, generous home made portions. Nb. Car park entrance is tight but there is a layby and street parking for large vans/motorhomes.

Despite being a 10 minute drive from our campsite and by no means the closest, this pub became our local for the week we were staying in Snowdonia. It has two dartboards and quite possibly the cheapest non-free pool table in the UK at a mere 50p/game! It also has a 42Ē plasma and another telly in another room. A huge restaurant to the rear, ample parking, beer garden (sadly never visited due to perpetual rainfall) with lots of rooms and nooks everywhere which give it atmosphere.

It was a finalist in a recent best pub food competition and has a wide selection on the menu with daily specials. The steak and ale pie was delicious and plentiful. My friend wanted a burger but they were on the kidsí menu so they doubled it up for him, stuffed it with bacon and cheese and all for £4, including a pile of their delicious chips. Food arrived very promptly and was all home-cooked. On our first night, we arrived 10 minutes after the kitchen had closed but they did us a baguette anyway. A great pint of Kronenbourg and a lovely pint of Guinness. A few real ales all in excellent condition.

Itís a very localsí pub Ė we went in almost every night for a week and saw the same faces Ė but this is by no means a bad thing as they are a friendly bunch (mind you, they were all speaking Welsh so couldíve been saying anything) and the bar staff are lovely and provide an excellent standard of service - congratulations to David, the bar manager, who does a great job in welcoming non-locals whilst also keeping the locals happy.

This pub was busy every night of the week, which is always a good sign. Shame itís so far away cos Iíll really miss it. Thoroughly recommended if you find yourself on the A487 near Caernarfon and are looking for something to warm you up whilst you shelter from the egregious weather.
