Very Good8.0
Great place if you like history and unique inns. Finding our room was a bit of a maize through stairs and twisted hallways and many fire doors between the sections of the historic inn. Location within the castle walls could not be beat. Food exceptional- make your dinner reservation when you first arrive.

Ooozing Charm!
So much better than expected! I was pleasantly surprised to see the inn was inside the old castle/city walls- very cool! This was the quintessential old pub I was looking for on our stay. So charming. We had drinks in the bar, dinner in the main dining room and breakfast in the carriage house. The food was AMAZING- some of the best on our 14 days tour through UK. Best omelet I've ever had:) dinner choices were great and we opted for welsh traditional and their specials. We even had dessert because it was so good! the room was perfect and the en-suite was very modern so the best of both worlds. I loved that everything was super close and in walking distance. We walked the streets and went to the castle in the morning!

Living History
Nearing its 500 year anniversary, this historic Inn is located within the outer Wall of Castle Caernarfon. The history, hospitality and food are all top notch. Just watch your head, some of the old ceilings are low.
