Wednesday 9th February - WE ARE CLOSED

We hope that you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.  As you can imagine it's a busy time of year for the team and they too deserve some time off!  Therefore we will be closed on Wednesday 9th of February whilst the team enjoy their belated Christmas party.

We will open again as normal on Thursday 10th February.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Wales restrictions as of Sunday 26th of December…

Just when it was feeling back to some semblance of normality, here we go again.  So unfortunately, we are back to the ‘rule of 6’ along with insisting on social distancing throughout the pub as well as wearing your mask at all times whilst not seated.  Table service throughout the pub is also back so please wait for your server to come to you once seated rather than approaching the bar.  You will also be asked for your contact details upon arrival (for track and trace purposes only).

JOINING US FOR A DRINK? Our bar tables are on a first come first serve basis so just pop down. At busy times you may be asked to queue whilst a table becomes available.

WANT TO DINE WITH US? If you would like to dine with us then you can book a table ONLINE or give us a call on 01492 593 535 to make a reservation.

Rule of 6 - We are able to accept groups of up to 6 people from mixed households (not including children under 11).  If from one household then larger groups allowed.


Welcome to the Erskine Arms

The Erskine Arms is a traditional Georgian coaching inn nestled within the medieval walls of Conwy a stone’s throw from King Edward I’s imposing medieval fortress, Conwy Castle.

The Erskine’s slightly austere exterior hides a warm and relaxed interior. With chunky old furniture, rugs and open fires, exactly what you’d want from an old Welsh inn. 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, not the most natural of bedfellows but they do combine to create an interesting interior of different levels and rooms and architectural styles.

Out of the windows you get interesting glimpses of the 13th century town walls and castle, the 12th century St. Mary’s church or up the Conwy valley towards the often snow topped Tal y fan. The town is hemmed in by the mountains to one side and the river and estuary to the other, giving Conwy a naturally strategic position, hence its fortification and many battles for its control. Conwy nowadays is quite the ‘hive’ of activity with lots of annual events, the Conwy Feast, the Conwy River Festival, Conwy Pirate Festival the historic Honey and Seed fairs – the dates for which, would you believe, having been set by Royal charter in the 13th century.

The Erskine offers a laid-back and friendly atmosphere to enjoy some fresh local food, great local ales, a glass or two of good quality wine and for those from further afield, quality cosy guest rooms.

Croeso i'r Erskine Arms

Tafarn coets fawr Sioraidd draddodiadol yw'r Erskine Arms, sy'n swatio yn waliau canoloesol Conwy, tafliad carreg o Gastell Conwy - caer ganoloesol fawreddog Brenin Edward I.

Mae tu allan yr Erskine, sydd ychydig yn blaen, yn wahanol iawn i'r tu mewn, sy'n gynnes ac yn hamddenol. Hen ddodrefn trwm, rygiau a thanau agored, mae'n union fel y dylai hen dafarn Gymreig fod. Cafodd yr adeilad ar ei ffurf bresennol ei greu yn ystod Oes Fictoria, gan gyfuniad o hen dafarn Sioraidd a bwthyn traddodiadol o'r 17eg ganrif yn perthyn i wneuthurwr hwyliau. Nid y pâr mwyaf naturiol, efallai, ond maent yn cyfuno i greu tu mewn difyr sy’n cynnwys gwahanol lefelau, ystafelloedd a dulliau pensaernïol.

Drwy'r ffenestri fe gewch chi gipolwg diddorol o waliau a chastell y dref, sy'n dyddio'n ôl i'r 13eg ganrif, eglwys y Santes Fair o'r 12fed ganrif, neu i fyny Dyffryn Conwy tuag at Tal y Fan, a'i gopa'n drwch o eira yn aml iawn. Mae'r dref wedi'i hamgylchynu gan y mynyddoedd ar un ochr, a'r afon a'r aber ar yr ochr arall, gan roi safle naturiol strategol i Gonwy, sy'n esbonio ei hamddiffynfa a'r sawl brwydr am reolaeth arni. Erbyn hyn, mae Conwy'n ferw o weithgareddau gyda nifer o ddigwyddiadau blynyddol, fel Gwledd Conwy, Gŵyl Afon Conwy, Penwythnos Môr-ladron Conwy a'r Ffeiriau Mêl a Hadau hanesyddol - credwch neu beidio, gosodwyd dyddiadau'r rhain yn y Siarter Frenhinol yn y 13eg ganrif.

Yn yr Erskine cewch gyfle i fwynhau bwyd lleol ffres, cwrw lleol blasus, gwydraid neu ddau o win o safon uchel, a hynny mewn naws hamddenol a chyfeillgar. I'r rheini sy'n ymweld o bell, mae ystafelloedd gwely cysurus o ansawdd uchel ar gael i westeion.
