Great food! Great service! We love Vons food, great staff and lovely customer service. When we come to Borth we always visit. Food is such excellent quality and generous amounts! I rate 5 stars...

Visited here bank holiday weekend having been told food is nice. Not a huge menu with prices from about £9 to £17. Restaurant is basic but food was very well cooked, potions large and staff very helpful. I had the best gammon steak that I have had in many years. My husband had a rather large mixed grill again all... More

We liked that you could have a drink in the bar then go into what would be the lounge and have a meal . Plenty of choice and choice for children's meals .

The food here is excellent and really hearty pub grub, generous servings and family friendly. The people serving however seem to despise you. Something we've found on a regular basis in Wales. The young lad waiting tables was outstanding, really friendly and made an effort. The young woman serving tables and lady behind the bar however were less than welcoming.... More

Never mind the food - there are three other essential ingredients for a meal at a restaurant: a friendly welcome; an enjoyable ambience; and attentive staff whose aim is to enhance the evening and who clearly enjoy their work. Sadly Von's fails on all three. Admittedly on the night we visited this week things were busy - but restaurants want... More

Von's is situated in the Railway Inn, but run as a separate business - you buy your drinks in the pub and then walk through to the restaurant. Hence no table service if you want another drink during your meal. The young lady who served in the restaurant was pleasant and efficient and the food reasonable "Pub Grub". We had... More

Absolute rubbish. Food was cold, the owner was rude, the waiting staff were atrocious. Our food was sent back and we did receive hot food but we all ended up being ill. Very expensive too.
