If not Portmeirion then...?

willowan | Nov 1, 2007 03:36 PM

Am staying near Tremadog this weekend and am looking for recs for somehwere to eat on Friday night. Have stayed and eaten at Portmeirion many times but on last visit ( about 12 months ago ) was dismayed to see that the Castell menu had crept into the main hotel dining room, a la carte had been slashed ( in choice not price !) and I had to send a steak back because they couldnt cook it medium properly. In the past I had put up with mildly snotty service because the food was awlways spot on , but have not been back since...

Have always thought the service at the Castell was a bit amateurish and the food expensive for what it is so am not instantly keen on going there either..


Have things improved either at Portmerion hotel itself or the Castell ? - if anyone has eaten at either recently , and

If not is there anywhere else taxi able away which is worth checking out? Doesnt have to be Portmeirion posh - a pub with decent food or local bistro/resto will do just fine. Equally if that is not an option - any recs for great local places to eat whatever the price , would be very welcome
