Unexceptional, but not unpleasant seafront pub near the centre of Rhos. Staff fairly friendly, wine fine, but I should have sent my ale back. Regrettably I didn’t, and had to leave half of it. Previously The Cayley Arms, it’s been recently refurbished and seems to be popular.
Fairly typical ‘spoons, but quite compact, in a grade-2-listed former cinema and theatre right next to Colwyn Bay station.
Another building that JDW have restored well, removing the ugly cladding outside.
To drink in, it’s just another ‘spoons, but special mention goes to the staff who rescued the camera I left behind, so I could go back and retrieve it.
Part of a small (2) local chain with The Albert, this is another stripped-wood recent refurb of an old pub, right on the main road through Colwyn Bay (if we disregard the A55, which bypasses the town in a cutting).
Inside is fresh and bright, but not wrecked by the refurb; there’s still original details about. Staff very friendly, beer great, and the food was excellent. The refurb is about 3 years old, but still looks good. There’s a strong bias to food, but you could just drink here- it hasn’t overtaken completely. A very pleasant place for lunch, only marred slightly by some twilds.
