Review on The Groes Inn
Voted 'Inn of the Year 2009' and 'Welsh Dining Pub of the Year' by the Good Pub Guide, the ancient Groes Inn lays claim to being the oldest licensed hostelry in Wales, with a history dating back to 1573.
As you might expect, the interior is etched with history, and visitors can relax in a cosy, atmospheric setting of nooks and crannies, Victorian portraits, low ceilings and beams - with the bonus of a lovely garden with spectacular mountain views. In addition to a full line-up of bar food and a chalkboard of specials, fine food with a local accent is also served in the conservatory-style restaurant.
Lovers of seafood are well served, with an abundance of local crabs,, wild salmon, oysters and more besides; the kitchen also procures lamb from the salt marshes of the Conwy Valley, pheasant from nearby estates, farm-cured hams and Welsh beef. The result is a menu that might offer poached salmon with hollandaise sauce, pot-roast widgeon with chestnuts, steak and mushroom pie or slow-baked lamb with capers and garlic. Finish with luscious homemade ice creams of Welsh cheeses.
