Visited this lovely old style tea room/cafe three times for tea or coffee after walks in the area. Very good selection of excellent cakes,friendly service and an added bonus was being able to take the dog into the ground floor room.

We ate at Y Sospan last night, for the first time but definitely not the last! It's a warm, inviting and pleasant restaurant on Dolgellau's main square, particularly inviting on a cold November Sunday evening after a day's walking in this fabulous scenery. One of our party was delayed by 30 mins but we were assured this was no problem.... More

The heading describes the food, place and people. We had a lovely meal here whilst staying in Dolgellau. Would recommend this restaurant and coffee shop to anyone staying or passing through Dolgellau.

As the main roads skirt Dolgellau you may not think of stopping here for a meal. However, I would highly recommend a small detour into Dolgellau and visiting Y Sospan. We visited for lunch on a recent journey and had a lovely home made meal. There is a warm welcome from staff as well. It is also worth a visit... More

We ate late in the afternoon (our tea) and chose a mix of things from the specials board and the standard menu. It was all really tasty and she had a great range of choice. Worth a visit.

This lovely bistrot is also a cafe during the day. At night it transforms itself into a delightful, intimate little restaurant. Outstanding, simply cooked dishes made with great ingredients sourced locally. We enjoyed crabcakes, crumble, pork tenderloin and lamb. Fantastic service and atmosphere. I would make a detour to come for a meal here.
