The Groes Inn, a pub and hotel in Conwy Valley has had quite a bit of history, though has stayed within the hands of the Humphreys family for many years. This beautiful, vine-covered old coaching inn is very much a part of North Wales and has been meticulously maintained for a very long time – staying in operation as the oldest existing pub within Wales.

This lovely place to visit and stay has multiple accolades throughout it’s many years of operation, including multiple AA rosettes and even a Michelin rating – earning attention on a nationwide level for it’s fine but unpretentious dining and amazing customer service.

More feathers in the Groes Inn’s proverbial cap are it’s location. Very much the heart of the Conwy Valley, this majestic coaching inn has been famed for its friendliness toward dog owners and their pets, and it’s close proximity to Surf Snowdonia, Zip World and Bodnant Garden makes the Groes Inn an ideal stopover point for any type of holiday in the North Wales region – recently named 4th in the top places to stay in the world by Lonely Planet.

The new owners, JW Lees, are a family business which has been in operation across the North Wales area for quite some time. A Brewery, JW Lees is well known throughout North Wales for ownership of high quality establishments such as the Angelsey Arms on Menai Bridge, and the Trearddur Bay Hotel on Holy Island.

William Lees-Jones, Managing Director, said, ‘We are proud to be the new custodians of The Groes Inn and we think that it will sit well within our Managed House estate. We remain hungry for acquisitions of both Managed and Tenanted pubs as well as hotels in the North West.’

The Groes Inn has been an excellent business and an asset to the North Wales area, and we wish the new owners all the very best with their brand new investment!
