Our friendly in-house Restaurant

Breakfast is served in our contemporary dining room from 7.30 am until 9.30 am (Mon – Fri) and 8.00 am until 10.00 am (Sat & Sun). We serve a delicious Continental selection as well as a Cooked Breakfast of your choice.

 

We have always aimed to make our food the best in the Porthmadog area and are quickly becoming THE place to eat. Our high-calibre chefs consistently create exceptional meals at great value, using only the finest, freshest ingredients sourced mainly from local suppliers in Wales.

Our style is seasonal Modern Welsh/British with either a contemporary European twist for the more adventurous, or traditional British ‘gastro’ dishes for those who enjoy more homely meals. This style brings out the best in local meats, game, seasonal fish and seafood, vegetables and cheese, releasing their true flavours. We have also recently started making our own pasta so be sure try one of our delicious options.

Lunch is served from 12h00 – 14h00 in the Bar and Dinner is served from 6pm – 20h30pm in the Bar and Restaurant. We are a dog-friendly hotel however, we are unable to accommodate dogs in the bar or dining areas after 6pm for non-residents.

 Gelert’s Bar

Our contemporary bar is very popular with local folk and visitors alike, this is a lovely place for a drink, chat and to hear Welsh spoken or even better to enjoy a light bite, lunch or dinner.

The original bar opened in 1862 and we have recently restored it to a cosy and comfortable lounge area where its original features (such as the big open fireplace) and photographs of Porthmadog’s history have been blended with modern comforts and style and of course, some great ‘on tap’ choices.
