Used to be the ticket hall of the railway station, burned down in 1980. Opened as a pub in 1984 as the Phoenix & Firkin, the chain was bought in turn by Allied and then Bass. In 2000 it became an O'Neill's, renamed again c.2005. Listed brick Victorian railway station building with a nice wrought-iron canopy. Spacious bare-boarded interior with a long bar made from a mahogany tree, high raftered ceiling, a huge station clock (from Llandudno Junction), small gallery at one end accessed via a spiral staircase. 4 handpumps. Bar staff say closing times during the week is temperamental if business is light.
