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 12pm – 2pm in the Bar and Dinner is served from 6pm – 9pm in the Bar and Restaurant.

 Gelert’s Bar

A traditional and friendly bar 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 ‘gastro’ pub light bite, lunch or dinner.

Since the bar opened in 1862 comfort has been blended with its original features such as the big open fireplace – with log fires in winter, a polished-wood bar, comfortable bench seating and photographs of Porthmadog’s history.
