We love this place and book ahead to ensure they can fit us in. We really enjoy the steak on the stone and being able to take our own wine and beer. A pleasant place with a relaxed atmosphere- thanks for accommodating us look forward to next time

Had afternoon tea. Exceptional quality and value. We dropped off a bottle of champers earlier which was nicely chilled on our table waiting for us. Staff very friendly. Decor delightfully different. We had a lovely afternoon.

My husband and I visited Llandudno recently and decided to call in at Characters Tea House and Restaurant for an afternoon tea. We had seen the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor, so we thought we would give it a try. We weren't disappointed. The afternoon tea was top class and we enjoyed that much, we called in again a few days... More

Being a fan of afternoon tea, I wouldn't have known about this lovely place without having done my homework first! Not a place I would have passed as it's down a side street - however you must go find it! A lovely tea-room, full of character and such a lovely welcome on walking through the door. We chose to sit... More

I visited this lovely tearoom today with 4 adults and 3 children. We were made to feel very welcome and offered a table downstairs which suited us being such a large party with children. The gentleman that took our order was polite, friendly and showed good product knowledge when quizzed about the dishes. All the meals we had were delicious... More

We popped in here for lunch based on TA reviews. Two adults and two children 8 & 5. It is a little off the main road, very quaint and quirky with vintage tables/tableware etc. The menu is not extensive but what they served was delicious. Our youngest had ham sandwich which was served with a cup full of crisps and... More

We had a Fantastic meal here advised to go by our guesthouse. So glad we did as we had steak on the stone while my life had tuna. Excellent starters with the Main meal to die for with a lovely desert. What a place definitely coming back for the best bistro experience I have had in ages.

I visited yesterday with my elderly parents. My mum has to follow a gluten and dairy free diet. I rung two days before to enquire whether they could cater for her. They were able to so I reserved a table for lunch. They were so helpful and accommodating, the waitress read through all the ingredients to ensure the food was... More
