Following the success of Salt Marsh Kitchen, we have now opened a cool Cafe/Bar right opposite in the historic Old Market Hall in Tywyn. A great place to enjoy a local craft beer, fine wine or cocktail. Very relaxed and casual atmosphere with some lovely outside space. Great food served by the Salt Marsh team. Gourmet Burgers & Artisan Pizzas made from scratch using mainly local Welsh products. We host numerous LIVE MUSIC events all year round, but mainly in the Autumn till Early Summer. Keep and eyeson our facebook page for more information. Salt Marsh Cafe Bar @ The Old Market Hall is great venue for parties, weddings, christenings, funerals etc.
