We went here with our family whilst having a weekend away. It was lovely. Super food and beautiful views over the Mawdach Estuary. Staff were warm and welcoming and the food was delicious. Can't wait to return!

Hi Neil, Unfortunately we do not allow dogs inside the Restaurant, we have a terrae outside where you are welcome to dine with your dogs, however this is not under cover so is dependant on dry weather.
