At the end of a long days walk along the Wales Coastal Path, this pub was a welcome sight. We didn't eat but this is a Brains pub so I presume the food is to a standard. We received a warm welcome, interested but not overwhelming.There is a large uncarpeted area where dogs are welcome. Even on a quiet winter... More

This was our first time visiting Aberdovey and we were overwhelmed by the stunning views but underwhelmed by our lunch at Dovey Inn. We ordered a fish combo sharer which had cold cheesy garlic bread and no calamari (as stated on the menu). The fish goujons were bland and the scampi was full of grease which burnt my partners chin... More

Only stopped for a quick bite at lunchtime but stayed for a bottle of wine. This is no gastronomic feast, but the meals were plentiful and cheap. They also had a water bowl and dog biscuits so it gets my vote.

We stayed in aberdovey for the weekend over new year. Both nights we ate at this pub (sad I know- but everywhere else was busy!) on the first night we ate, our meal was brilliant. The value for money was great, the food was delicious, drinks were nice. Second night, the table was sticky, the burger was inedible and the... More

I visited the Dovey Inn in a party of four people for an evening meal . Only one member of our party had a main course which was acceptable, all of our starters were microwaved dry up offerings . The Lamb and Leek Suet Pudding deserves a special mention as it didn't appear to contain suet and was in fact... More

Called for late lunch at the Dovey Inn, after a little time spent in nearby Tywyn and walking along the Aberdyfi sands. We always like this place and I like to soak up some coastal ambience within the charming stone walls and pictures of sailing ships and so on. So we ordered our drinks and found a table and ordered... More

We ate dinner here one night; lamb and leek pie and a chicken caesar salad. Good pub grub, well flavoured, well cooked and nicely served. Cheerful, helpful service.

We popped in on a Saturday night for dinner, the pub itself was very warm and welcoming and the staff were friendly. Unfortunately the food was a let down, it was typical 'chain pub' food. Both my partner and myself had the half roast chicken and chips, the chicken was rather dry and the chips weren't much better. The mulled... More
