The Old Ship lies at the heart of the village of Trefriw, in more ways than one. Not only is The Ship conveniently located in the middle of the village, it is also the central meeting place for the residents of the village.


A warm welcome awaits all who step through the door, along with a great menu and bar catering for everyone. The Old Ship is a member of CAMRA and features in "The Good Beer Guide"

The Old Ship is a "Free House" and Proprietor/Chef, Rhian Glyn Barlow (a real ale drinker and member of CAMRA herself), always has at least 3 cask ales on tap.

Bank's and usually one or two local beers e.g. Rwster from Nant brewery in LLanrwst or Glaslyn from Mws Piws Porthmadog. There are 4 local breweries that we use.

There is also an extensive wine list and a wide selection of malt whiskies


The Old Ship is in the beautiful village of Trefriw, set into the heavily wooded eastern edge of the Snowdonia National Park. A walkers paradise, there are 11 tranquil lakes in the hills above the town, including three large ones. Crafnant, the prettiest has excellent Trout fishing. Geirionydd, the birthplace of the mystical Taliesen ( the inspiration for Merlin) is used for watersports. Cowlyd, high above the treeline in bleak moorland, offers stunning views of the valley below.

Trefriw is an excellent base stay(avoiding the more busy and commercial resorts) and to explore the rest of the popular attractions of Snowdonia and North Wales.
