Not sure what has happened to the food here but it’s not as good as it was. Just had the curry it was watery and not up to their usual standard. Also £17 for a curry , bit pricey. I have always given positive reviews...in the past as usually the food here is brilliantMore

Even though we live 17 miles away from Dolgellau this is actually our chosen local. Great people. Great atmosphere. Great Guinness and they do tiki captain Morgan! Can't get better than that!

Stopped for lunch and my partner forgot to ask for no cheese on my meal (dairy issue) and they just made a completely new meal, no quibbles. They were so helpful and kind. Many thanks.

We have tried many of not most of the pubs and restaurants in the area over the last 5 years and low and behold the Torrent wins outright on many levels , a friendly local atmosphere with great service and helpful staff , the real...ale fans would not be disappointed with a full selection of Ales. however the hidden surprise is menu and the home cooked food, high end quality for any pub that is something quite special in taste and selection from the Salmon risotto to the pork loin with vegetarian options if you fancy. Well done team Torrent. Simply the best pub in town all roundMore

Friendly bar for visitors and a few regular locals. Great food in the restaurant or more casually in the bar area. Very popular for Sunday lunch. Five stars if the bar staff would acknowledge waiting customers rather than blanking until they're ready to serve. Slight...Welsh attitude with every pint. Good range of beers and wines. Not at all disappointing!More

We ate here last night. The service was friendly and informal. The surroundings were interesting , decorated with posters for a local music event. There is a great range of drinks with Real Ale, the main feature. The food was excellent, home cooked, and decent...portions. I had Belly Pork served with mash potatoes and veg. The fresh veg was cooked perfectly cooked through but still with a bite. Bread and Butter pudding for desert was one of the best ever. All the meals coming out of the kitchen looked excellent. 10/10!More

This is a great pub. The food was excellent and the ales were locally brewed. Well worth a visit. The lamb rump was delicious.

A great local boozer.. The main bar area is snug & cosy with an open fire… A warm welcome from the bar staff.. We did try and book a table for 7 .. The Torrent do not take bookings. Just turn up… The restaurant area...is not as cosy as the bar however it is fine… With lots of posters over the years advertising the Dolgellau music festival Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau… Which occurs every July.. We had a range of meals . Gammon steak. Pie of the day. Chicken Parma. Lamb curry etc… All meals were very tasty and plentiful. I believe the chef is named Gary… The meals were delicious thank you. They cater for gluten free and veggie also.. A good selection of local & guest ales… The wine selection was fine also… Oh and also very dog friendly… Whoof!More

Having heard many good things from friends about the food at the Torrent, we decided to visit for a small family get together on a wet Friday lunchtime (Feb 24). The Torrent is right in the heart of Dolgellau, a small farming town so don't...expect it to be grand with plush furnishings, what it is, is cosy, friendly, and comfortable. The staff were warm, welcoming and helpful. We sat in the dining room and ordered from a well presented menu with plenty of choice. The food was brilliant, my wife had the curry, which the chef kindly added extra heat to (she likes it spicy hot). All the dishes were excellent, arrived hot, well presented, were well portioned, and best of all very tasty. The price? well five of us ate, and had six drinks (including 2 large and 1 medium pinot), all for £104, which i feel was fantastic value for money, not including the tip which we left separately. If you're thinking of going, i would urge you to try the Torrent, the food is great, as are the staff. Thanks for a lovely lunch!More

I have visited this real ale bar many times in the winter. 7/2/24, no central heating, and log fire not lit. Perishing! Could only manage 2 pints before having to go elsewhere. A real shame.

Came with a choose of chips or mash and a generous side of mixed...veg, which consisted of carrots cauliflower beans braised red cabbage courgettes and sprouts.
