This seems to be a really popular place to stop for food and for advice on walks in the area the food is plentiful and reasonably priced they offer overnight parking for a few pounds and showers. Would highly recommend and we would most definitely return. Staff are really friendly and helpful.

Parking opposite the pub - pay inside. This was an enjoyable walk - reasonable effort - gets easier as you go on. Path is easy to follow - once at the start of the ascent proper, be sure to stick to the top of the ridge line - staying down below it will lead off at an angle that makes... More

Described on websites as an easy mountain walk. Not the easiest of walks but nonetheless easier than Snowdon. Some paths not clearly defined but relatively straight forward. Worth it when you get to the top. Descending can be a bit tricky though. When going down the ridge, straight across the top of the ridge towards the Llynnau Mymbyr lakes in... More

Good food, lovely staff and very welcoming atmosphere. We were popping in at different times of day and it was very relaxed and spacious and there was always something nice to eat. A good place to recuperate after a big climb. The guy working there gave us lots of good advice about where to walk and climb and his recommendations... More

Just an unbelievable day out - you pass old mines, quarries and workings - steeped in history from the good old days. Continue up past a lovely little lake and choose your way up depending upon your level of scrambling! If you want to do things in reverse then it is easier but in my opinion a long slog! The...

Moel diabod gets talked down for lacking the excitement of some of its neighbours. I've always enjoyed the quiet there, the different and stunning viewpoint, the access into the Moelwyns. A variety of routes up and down, its a big hill, can catch the weather dramatically, go prepared.

A challenging scramble that takes you past beautiful lakes and rivers- perfect for a summers dip, and up to a windy peak with incredible views of Snowdonia. Allow a good 5hrs to complete in good conditions and be weary that wind, snow and mist can make the last ascent difficult with no clear path or signs (do not attempt without... More

Totally unplanned visit,but worth it. Plenty of parking room,homely entrance on approach. Wide selection of food offered,and presented efficiently by very pleasant staff,credit to them, considering it was very busy every where. Well worth a visit,highly recommended.

Viewed from Snowdon, the Glyders or Carneddau, Moel Siabod looks very, very boring. Seen from Betws y Coed, or from the A5, especially just before Capel Curig, it has a shapeliness and challenge that draw eyes and legs up it. It isn't big - it can be walked up and down in half a day - but it is big... More
