Food is good but the choice of real ale is quite poor. Jennings was the choice of the day so I'm guessing the pub is tied to the brewery.

Very disappointed after reading the comments. Only the dreadful Doom Bar available . I'd advise the revamped Australia and Spooners if you want real ale in Porthmadog.

Very much a food pub but does have 4 handpumps. On our visit all serving national brews and no evidence of local brews having been on sale. Marstons New world in good condition.

What a good Pub!
Welcoming and interesting with a good choice of Real Ales on handpump. Busy early evening with food. This is a good, fun pub with lively staff and good beer and food. Highly recommended for all age groups.

On the outside this is a charactersome and inviting looking pub. The inside has perhaps less character or charm but is neat and well presented and it was a very warm and cosy refuge on a night when the wind was very keen. 4 real ales were available and there was a good menu of pub fayre food on offer, if just a tad pricey:- the chicken and leek pie saved my life after a long day of travelling and touring. Good enough that I went back the next night for food but it was rammed with those partaking of the "curry and a pint night" special offer. For me it was somewhere to start the night with a pie and a pint rather than a place to get established for a session.

Visiting the area and popped in on a Monday lunchtime. Four ales available including a Purple Moose brew - had two pints of that and very nice they were. Had a steak and guiness pie - huge portion, really well cooked. Bar staff were friendly and service was good. Would definitely recommend this pub and is rightly in the GBG 2012.

Visited at 6 p.m. 24/9/11 for a bar meal , pub was packed and were asked had we booked as it was so busy,Luckily managed to squeeze us in table for four.
The food was brilliant, with a good selection of real ales.
This has been transformed from a pub to almost restaurant status but still very reasonably priced.
Very popular with locals and visitors alike.
If you are in Porthmadog, do yourself a favour and call in, you won't be dissapointed

Situated on the West side of the park this is a low double fronted slate slabbed pub which immediately looks inviting.

Two rooms; the left hand one is (currently) the smoking bar and the larger right hand one is non-smoking with a little area at the back.

As its name suggests the pub, a free house, has a nautical theme and has interesting pictures of maritime life in and around Porthmadog, especially during the height of the slate quarrying years.

There's always a range of real ales on and are always well kept. The range of these beers are never anything exciting or exotic but they do the job well.

The staff are wonderfully friendly and the management make sure that everyone is made to feel welcome here.

In the winter evenings when the wood fire blazes it's especially cosy and is one of the few pubs in town where one can feel relaxed.

They offer a decent, but pricey, pub food menu.
