Our first visit to Watsons, having heard good reviews, and we weren't disappointed. the food and service were excellent. We arrived in time to have the early bird menu, which proved very good value. They had only just reopened following the recent firebreak lockdown, so the social distancing measures, hand sanitiser, wearing of masks, booking in upon arrival etc were all in place, so felt safe to be there. Will definitely go back again.

Had a wonderful meal. Unusual choices, and well cooked and presented. It felt very ‘COVID safe’ but obviously that did mean that the atmosphere etc wasn’t quite as it probably would have been pre pandemic. I am vegetarian, and although choice was limited, the food was excellent, and it was so nice not to Have to choose between lasagne and risotto!
Would definitely recommend this place.

Pleasant enough, but not really welcoming. Given a naff table by the toilet didn't whinge because of distancing.
Starters and dessert good, but main of slow cooked lamb unnecessarily complex with far too many flavours on the plate and, to my mind not enough sauce.

Inventive and tasty dishes using local ingredients - pricing is on the higher side for the area, but we considered it good value given the quality of the food.

We decided to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary here whilst on holiday. Oh my, what a treat!!! The food was absolutely scrumptious. The pudding was divine. I'm so glad we don't live anywhere near this place - we'd be absolutely keeping slimming world in business as we'd definitely eat here all the time. I had a goats cheese and tomato salad to start. Sheer creaminess with a hit of tartness from the juicy tomatoes - beautiful to look at too. For mains I had beef that literally feel apart when touched (never had anything like it) with crispy chunky chips and something beetrooty which cut through the melt in the mouth beef butter/fat. It came with carrots and crispy kale. An absolute fabulous combination of flavours and textures. The dessert was incredible... Sticky toffee pudding with marmalade and home made ice-cream with plenty of toffee sauce, again a scrumptious combination of textures and flavours. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. I couldn't fault our visit, and if we're ever in the area again, we'd definitely go back. I booked on line, which was so simple and straightforward. All in all a very pleasant experience.

We had early bird. Great value and friendly staff. We could not eat our dessert as was too full. Staff gave us doggy bags to take home to have later. Cannot fault the food! Second time here and will definitely be back. Must book early as always full house!

The only reason I gave a moderate for noise level was because of two children this however was not a as they were just exited and soon
Everything else 5 star.

Nothing special, quite pricey, interesting menu but the food disappointing in both flavours and presentation. Food overcooked and dry, desserts very good though. Both starters and mains lacked flavour and sauce.

We visited Conwy for our first wedding anniversary. We booked our evening meal at Watson’s Bistro as it was a special occasion. The restaurant was tucked away on its own. It had a lovely outside terraced area for a drink before our meal. It had a nice atmosphere and was lovely for a romantic meal. A bit pricey but great for a special occasion. The food was excellent and the service was good.

As always the quality of the food was excellent. Service never too intrusive and they can answer all questions about the food. Having only just reopened the ambience not as lively but this was to be expected.

Opening night after lockdown. Off their game after so long but I’m sure they will be back to their usual standards before too long. A bit disappointing this time.
