Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Erskine Arms

The Erskine Arms was my third pub on a recent midweek visit to Conwy. After being in the Albion and the Bank of Conwy, the Erskine Arms completed a decent trio of pubs to start my day.

I was a bit aggrieved to find some kind of "welcome" podium at the entrance where I was asked if I'd made a reservation. It seems many tables on higher levels of this split-level pub are for diners. I was invited to head down a short flight of stairs to the bar, where there were a few empty tables. There was also an outdoor area available to drinkers.

Conwy Clogwyn Gold & Timothy Taylor Boltmaker appear to be the regular beers on here. In addition, there was Purple Moose Snowdonia Ale & Cwrw Ial Kia Kaha! The real cider was Lilley's Mango Cider.

I chose the cider and enjoyed my drink next to a rather large fireplace. I'm reliably informed that this pub can get very busy at times. It certainly enjoys a good location next to the railway station and close to the castle and the town walls. Definitely one of the better pubs in town.

A surprisingly large multi-layered and multi-room with two bars that has obviously been comprehensively and trendily modernised recently; slate, wood, undressed stone that sort of thing. Quite tasteful and well-done, all told; a shame that COVID meant we couldn’t wander round and pick our seat and we ended-up in a sparse table by the lower bar though it was at least adjacent to an impressive smoking area. Ales on; Purple Moose Dark Side (NBSS 4) 2x Conwy and TT Boltmaker. Another impressive beer venue in this small town. 7.5

Good Beer Guide 2019 entry.

Posh Hotel, that has obviously had a serious and expensive make over since some of the reviews here.

Large busy central area but we did find a delightfully quiet "study" at the front of the building. All leather chesterfields and smart decoration.

Food was very good. Beers were limited in choice but the TT Boltmaker was in good condition.

A good pub that caters for many occasions and type of punter and much better than you would expect for a tourist location.

Recommended.
