Called in for an evening meal with a couple of work colleagues. Food was great and well priced. We definitely call again next time I am in the area.

This place used to be a completely unattractive, out dated, unwelcoming place serving 'care home' type roast dinners. I have kept away for years but was visiting the area for Snowdon Marathan to support friends taking part. We were told it had been gutted out and totally refurbished by new owners. I could not believe it was even the same... More

We decided to pop in for a light lunch, and are so pleased that we did. The waitress in the restaurant was delightful, and the meal was superb. We both ordered the Beef Chilli with Rice, and it was the nicest meal we could have wished for. My wife only wanted a small meal, so the chef gave her a... More

The Padarn has recently been renovated and is now a stylish and a wonderful place to eat. We eat here at least once a week and the food is always delicious. The staff are attentive and helpful. The Bistro is divided into 3 areas, each one with its own charm. The owners clearly care about their business and their enthusiasm... More

We ended up here because the pub down the road had stopped servicing food, and we were grateful they had because this was a fantastic place to eat. Lovely food, the staff were great and the prices good too. Thanks for a lovely evening.

We were recommended the restaurant from our lovely B&B hosts and had fantastic meals on consecutive nights. The restaurant staff were very attentive without being overbearing, the food was delicious and very good value for money and the environment was very relaxing. The owners have done a great job revamping the place. We'll definitely be returning when we're back in... More
