This is now called Shelleys cellar bistro. We called in here after receiving absolutely terrible Service at the sea breeze and it was fantastic. The service and food here was second to none. This place is a must if you are visiting Aberdovey.

We've eaten here a few times under the previous owners, but this is the first time since it's changed to 'Shelleys'... I have to say we were not disappointed and the meal and service were excellent. Can't wait to go again!

I would think it will be open - there is mention of closure on the website. I would advise ringing them too.
My mum and I visited this restaurant last year and was looking forward to visiting again, however we don't arrive till Sunday and return home on Tuesday and I have just rang up and they are closed Sunday evening and Monday evening. I just wondered if they were open Sunday lunchtime? Lynda Cattell
