Ale was okay but you do feel like it is the cafeteria of a tourist attraction rather than a pub.

It's a great location virtually on the platform of the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways but the quality of beer was not to what it should have been. I think we were unlucky in a few times getting the bottom of the cask. The food quantities are enormous so go hungry.

excellent location for watching the comings and goings at the station. I didn't think the range or condition of the beers was as good as others have said. Purple Moose Snowdonia was fine but Salopian Gold was out of condition.

I suppose it ought to be known as "The Booner's Spar", really...

Real ale and steam trains. A holiday lunchtime pint doesn’t get much better than that. This interesting place isn’t your traditional pub experience and has already been well described by others so just to add that an additional two ale pumps have been added along the bar top to now make eight in total and these were dispensing Jennings Cumberland, Sharps Doombar, GK IPA, Banks Mild, Sadlers JPA and the house Spooners Ale alongside Snowdonia Ale and Dark Side of the Moose from the local Purple Moose brewery.
I tried both the Purple Moose brews as we had a brewery tour at this local microbrewery scheduled for the afternoon and I wanted to get acquainted with them beforehand and they were both very good beers, especially the dark bitter, and well kept.
