The food was very good, small but interesting menu, the downside is that I was still hungry after leaving the restaurant, we had starters, and main courses, all small portions, these with one bottle of ordinary wine,and three bottles of beer the price was over...£200 for four people, I felt it was expensive for what we had.More

Great food always. Repeatedly great food. I live locally and eat there frequently. The restaurant was very busy yet the food remained true to expectation.

A place we always wanted to go but for one reason or another haven't made it there; until yesterday 🤩. Booked online (very easily; had to pay £10 deposit). Staff were lovely & welcoming. Food was amazing, everything was fresh & very tasty. We were...both very happy with our choices, perfect end to a lovely weekend in Barmouth 🌞More

We were staying in the area and decided to book a table here after seeing good reviews. When we arrived it was quiet, we were seated straight away. They don't have beer on tap which is a shame only bottles, I had the 'dark side...of the moose' which was ok and brewed in Wales. For food I had the 'Asparagus, pea & ricotta lasagne, crispy courgettes, rocket salad' which was really nice and would have it again. For dessert we shared the 'bread & butter pudding with whiskey custard' which was small but was nice, there was a slight hint of whiskey in the custard but could have been stronger. Overall the location is good, the price is ok, the staff member seemed friendly. The food was good. Booking a table is advised.More

Our first visit, but won't be our last. Lovely setting, delicious food, cooked perfectly and presented elegantly. Service was friendly, relaxed and attentive. What more could you want? The pork belly starter was heavenly!

Another excellent experience. Great service and food at reasonable prices. Not our first visit and certainly not our last. Very good range of dishes on the menu makes it difficult to choose. Settled for pork belly start and a perfectly cooked steak with coconut rice...pudding to finish. Our favourite restaurant by some distance.More
