The Tal y cafn

Welcome to the Tal-Y-Cafn, a modern day coaching Inn turned Bistro, with a delicious locally sourced menu, local beers, spirits and a carefully selected wine list.  Enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and warm welcome of your host, Terry Jones, in this recently redeveloped 200 year old inn set in one of the most beautiful locations in the Conwy Valley.  Just a short drive from Betws-y-Coed, Llandudno, Conwy and the North Wales coast – Tal-Y-Cafn sits right at the centre of some of the best days out in North Wales.  Whether you fancy a day out in the Snowdonia National Park, action packed adventure underground at Go Below, flying through the air at Zip World or catching a wave at Surf Snowdonia – the Tal-Y-Cafn is a great place to stay or relax, eat and drink.
