user reviews of Crown Hotel, Pwllheli

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

This is currently the only pub in Pwllheli that is listed on BITE (others with Pwllheli postcodes are miles from the town itself). We passed a couple of other pubs while walking from the station to the Crown, but neither tempted us at all. When we eventually found the Crown, it looked all right from the outside. However, its interior has been rather knocked around, so that all trace of its pleasant layout has disappeared. There is a main bar area, a 'snug' (occupying what must have been the original entrance hallway), a side bar (with 'rustic' stone walls), and a separate dining room that was laid-up, but in darkness on a summer saturday lunch-time.
We picked-up a bar menu from a table in the main bar, but were forced to retreat, first of all to the snug and then to the side bar, because of the most extraordinary cacophany coming from some electronic equipment - I first of all thought they were setting-up the disco equipment or kareoke for the evening, but my companion eventually worked out that somebody was using the wide-screen television screen to conduct an internet video-telephone call with her mother at full (and I mean full) volume. As the bar is open in the middle between all the separate rooms, it was impossible to escape the dreadful noise, which went on for about 15 minutes.
The staff were, despite the other problems, attentive and friendly. Food was fairly standard pub fare (fish and chips, steak & ale pie, scampi and chips, poached salmon and new potatoes, etc.), and arrived quickly and in generous quantities, though prices were fairly high, between 8 and 11. Some cask ale available, though the IPA (I didn't spot the brand, as the pumps faced the noisy side of the bar) was not in the best of condition - probably not enough throughput.
If this is the best that Pwllheli (that fancies itself as a holiday resort) can offer the visitor, I'm disappointed.
