Food excellent and friendly prompt service. Very good value. Beer nothing special and awful Sky Sports on constantly as well as piped music. What a pity ambience spoilt by this thoughtless noise while customers trying to enjoy a very good meal.

Food a big improvement on 6 months ago but staff could not give details of available wine and clearly knew nothing about it, ordered a glass of the only red on offer and it was poor. Staff trying to be good re covid but many customers were blatantly ignoring the restrictions. Not going again.

Fantastic Sunday roast today, really generous portions, quality ingredients, well cooked and brought out quickly. Lovely pub, good beers, with really friendly and helpful staff. Just a shame Everton couldn’t match the quality on the telly

If you want a meal at the Blue Lion Pub in Cynwyd dont book it through OpenTable.
When 7 of us entered the pub and informed them we had a table booked they were dumbfounded, they had not been informed of this.
However, do not let this put you off, the staff at the pub were great, they sorted out a long table for us and gave us a great meal.
The service was excellent and all the staff made us feel welcome.
