About our venue

Built in 1752, the White Lion Royal Hotel is a 4 star Coaching Inn located in the heart of Bala. Being close to Snowdonia National Park this is an ideal venue for those of you travelling in north and mid Wales. We are close to golf, wind surfing, the white water rafting centre and surrounded by fabulous walks and glorious scenery. There are high quality guest rooms here, a cosy bar and large restaurant - we can cater for groups of all sizes and occasions of all kinds. There is a bar menu, featuring some locally sourced pub classics in the restaurant for more formal dining. All food is cooked from fresh, so please come and sample our quality for yourself! During the winter months our large open log fire is a real feature and gives the bar a very warm feeling and cosy atmosphere. We sell a wide selection of Brains real ales and have won an award for the quality of our beers. Come and visit us soon. Our friendly, welcoming, efficient staff are keen to advise on the local area and the many activities to enjoy.

Our Grills & More menu has a great selection of dishes including healthy meals, snacks, sharing platters and of course a great range of grills! A more healthy approach has been introduced as we serve a variety of salads for the more health conscious among us. Why not indulge in one of our delicious desserts including some fabulous ice-cream? Every Sunday we also serve a hearty Sunday Roast including delicious roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. Also served with home roasted potatoes and fresh seasonal vegetables.
