Returned to Beddgelert after many years of absence and was delighted to find the Saracen's Head. A welcome rest with helpful friendly staff. The bar menu for lunchtime was brilliant and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal recommended by the bar staff: a ham sandwich with coleslaw and crisps washed down by the 'Faithful Gelert' and an excellent coffee. It was... More

Another really wonderful visit to the Saracens. Such a warm welcome for us and the dogs. It feels like our home from home. Nothing is too much trouble - they just simply take care of you when you are in need of some serious r&r! The room is a gem, the food gorgeous, the choice of walks endless and the... More

We visited here for out evening meal whilst camping near by. It was very busy and we had not booked but after a wait they managed to fit us in (and it was not the busy season). The food was very nice but a little bit pricey at £15 for a burger. The location and the fact that eating places... More

Nice friendly pub with good food but a little hit and miss on service. Drinks in particular seemed to take forever although there weren't many customers. The burgers are huge but the spinach advertised with another dish consisted of half a leaf (more was provided when this was pointed out).

This is a food review only as we were not staying. We had two excellent meals on a not too busy Easter Monday. Cod and chips was massive but really good as was the plaice and prawns. A good job we'd worked up an appetite. A nice selection of local beers and nice wine. Staff were mixed some cheerful and... More

Had to wait 40 mins for a table & the food was okay but none of us were blown away. Service was good & drinks & food was reasonable.

Pub is welcoming with nice decor and good outdoor seating. We only had lunchtime sandwiches (fish finger sandwiches were really good) but all enjoyed and would definitely come back.

I visited here with 3 friends and two of us were Coeliacs. They were gluten free friendly and we're happy to help with the menu. We arrived late from travelling and although they had closed the kitchen, they agreed to help us out by opening the kitchen and making us some supper. The atmosphere was relaxing and cosy. There was... More

It's past midnight and the noise from the bar area permeating the rooms is unacceptable. Please sort it out. If you've spent the day walking Snowdon the last thing you need a bunch of idiots making noise that makes sleep impossible.

We were very lucky to get a table at 6.30pm on a Friday night, having not booked, when there were 10 of us. The food was really great and everybody had a lovely meal. I enjoyed a very tasty burger and my husband the lamb, others had the fish & chips and the chicken. The children had their burger too... More
