It's great to have our doors open again, it’s been a long and quiet few weeks without the usual buzz about the place!
The new rules are simple: you can visit the pub either inside or out in groups of 4 people from multiple households (children under 11 excluded) OR if you are from one household then there is no maximum number of people.
New legislation requires you to bring ID for your booking - for groups of 4 or less all adults within the group must verify their name using a form of ID such as a driving license or bank card. However, if you are a party greater than 4 from one household then all adults in the group must provide name and proof of address such as a driving license or utlilty bill. This is now a government requirement.
If you live in Wales, you are allowed to travel anywhere within Wales as long as you keep to the rule of 4 so we very much look forward to welcoming visitors from further afield again. However sadly those from over the Welsh border will have to wait a little longer for your Erskine fix.
If you wish to come and stay at the Erskine Arms or Y Capel we welcome any guests who live in Wales however, if you aren't from Wales then we are only able to welcome guests who are travelling for a "reasonable excuse" such as: work, education, a medical appointment, legal requirement or compassionate grounds.
Thank you for your continued support and we very much look forward to seeing you again soon.
Ben and the team.

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.
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.
We'll be in touch from time to time to keep you updated with all of our latest news and goings on.
