Located near the very southern tip of Holy Island (Holyhead Island) on Anglesey and is just west of Silver Bay beach, the White Eagle is either a 20 minute walk or a five minute drive from Silver Bay.

You’re walking down the beautiful sandy Rhoscolyn beach, breathing in that fresh sea-side air and drinking in the fantastic views of the coastal path. What better way to top it off than resting your weary legs at the White Eagle? You can also bring your furry friends with you too, as the eatery is pet-friendly!

Enjoy the outdoor terrace and soak in the views overlooking the stunning Anglesey coast while enjoying one (or two pints) of their guest ales on draught. There is great food on offer with seasonal menus as well. The White Eagle’s critically acclaimed Steak Pies are to die for, and their home-made fish and chips are amongst customer favourites.

And if that wasn’t enough, indulge yourself in Rhoscolyn history (where the pub is located) which is famous with the patron saint St Gwenfaen. We won’t give too much away though, you’ll have to discover it for yourself!

The Silver Bay Summer Roundup 2017

Help Save The Silver Bay Honey Bees in Anglesey & Beyond



There’s nothing quite like going on holiday with your adorable and loyal four-legged companion.

But what happens if you plan on going out for dinner, or visiting a pub, that doesn’t allow for dogs?

We know there’s no reason why you should keep your pup in a strange hotel, or safely locked in the car, while you enjoy a family meal. After all, if you’re travelling within the UK this summer, you probably chose to because you could bring your pet along.

So if have plans to visit Anglesey this summer, here is a short list of our favourite dog-friendly pubs in North Wales – including one or two great restaurants too.

PS. If you’d like to find out more about owning your very own holiday home on Anglesey, view our eBrochure here.


1. Ty Dderw

Located close to the beautiful village of Moelfre, Ty Dderw is a haven for anyone that loves good food, good wine, and exceptionally welcoming surroundings.

The restaurant is ran by Head Chef, Mark Williams who has over 23 years experience of professional cooking – including for the Queen. He has a passion for sourcing his produce locally and creates some of the best Welsh dishes on Anglesey.

This is a firm favourite amongst locals and regular visitors to Anglesey, so we thoroughly recommend that your bring your loving pooch to this great establishment.


2. The White Eagle

After a long day of walking in the Welsh countryside, there’s nothing better than retiring to a warm and welcoming pub for some hearty grub.

But if you prefer the sound of pan roasted hake with samphire, or summer barley risotto, then you’ll absolutely love The White Eagle. This beautiful pub has a fantastic wine and beer list and attracted plenty of critical acclaim since it first re-opened its doors in 2007.

It’s also the perfect spot if you’re travelling with your dog, with the owners John and Alex more than happy to accommodate.


3. The Black Lion

This beautiful Grade II listed building has been lovingly restored from its 18th century origins, and now offers a fantastic selection of delicious food and drink for tourists and locals alike.

But what really makes the Black Lion is its commitment to work exclusively with local producers – including Halen Môn and Four Seasons.

So if you’re in the mood for relaxing beside a wood-burning stove, or perhaps sitting outside on the patio to enjoy views of the Snowdonia mountains, then this is one of the best views you’ll enjoy in Anglesey.

And of course – dogs are welcome too.

4. The Tavern on the Bay

With a fantastic seasonal menu, The Tavern On The Bay always has a new trick up its sleeve – offering some of the best and most delicious cuisine available.

But this restaurant also has a fascinating history, having first been built in 1924 as a marine cottage on the coast. That’s why The Tavern has a number of beautiful indoor features that make it stand out from the rest, not to mention a beautiful view of the Irish Sea.

With a laid back feel, excellent food, and friendly owners who always seem to be smiling, we think this is a lovely destination for a spot of beachfront cuisine.
