Wonderful 3 course meal. Real old school prawn cocktail. cod with a nut and herb crust then affogato. The ambience is elegant, service slick and discreet and the management team very professional. Always call ahead to book.

  • This restaurant is at Y Meirionnydd
Y Meirionnydd Townhouse is a great restaurant and bar in the centre of Dolgellau. What was the original old County jailhouse has been skilfully converted into a contemporary, stylish and yet cosy restaurant serving traditional British dishes with a Welsh twist using mostly local produce. The ground floor bar is a great place to unwind and relax with a drink or light meal. Booking is essential, please check for opening times. Please note we are unable to cater for children under 8 years old.
