The Black Boy Inn in Gwynedd has been named the Welshest pub in the world.


The competition organised by Arlosesi Gwynedd Wledig celebrates pubs that are benefiting from using the Welsh language.


It is believed that the 16th Century hostelry dates back to 1522.


Competition winners are chosen solely by the public and the staff said they are privileged to be mentioned in the final short list of wonderful Welsh Restaurants and Pubs.


Landlord Mr Evans said: "We have been using the Welsh language here for many years. I come from Dinas Mawddwy where you wouldn't hear any English, growing up.


"I think it's great for locals and tourists that come to Caernarfon to hear the language being used naturally.


"We operate a bilingual business. Our staff understand Welsh and all our signs are bilingual. The population in Caernarfon use it every day and it's great for visitors to see this. It adds to their experience."


The pub is a great base to explore Caernarfon, Snowdonia and north Wales.


The Black Boy Inn has 3 accommodation properties; each property is different to suit clients requirements. In total there are 39 bedrooms including en-suite and self catering. Find out more about accommodation at the Black Boy Inn.
