About the Pub

Re-opened in May 2017 after a major refurbishment, the name being changed back to the Erskine Arms after the family who owned it up until 1997 when it was bought by Stange & Co. and renamed the Malt Loaf in keeping with its sister pub the Cottage Loaf in Llandudno. The building has been CADW Grade 2 listed since October 1981 for its "special architectural interest as a C19 commercial building retaining definite character, and for its group value within the historical townscape". The pub had now been expanded to use much more of the space within the building with two distinct dining areas, one on an upper floor, a ‘snug’ to the left of the main entrance and there is bar area and an outside drinking area. There are traditional wooden features, cosy corners, open fires and pictures on the walls portraying the history of the area. The building in its current form was created during Victorian times by a combination of an old Georgian Inn and a traditional 17th century sail-maker’s cottage creating an interesting interior of different levels and rooms and architectural styles. The homemade food menu is available seven days a week and includes hearty classics and changing seasonal specials, roasts are served for Sunday lunch alongside the usual menu. The Erskine also has ten boutique guest bedrooms which can be booked by phone or on-line. Real ales are from all over the UK including local beers from Conwy and Purple Moose breweries. The real cider is Welsh.
