Posh dining

We set out for fish and chips ...from Hereford, a nice little evening jaunt for us, as we love Aberystwyth. We found our usual chip shop sadly closed. It was chip shop dining time, only 6pm so we thought is a little early for a table in a restaurant. We were wrong when we enquired at Gwesty Cymru... read more

I have eaten here on a number of occasions and never disappointed. Gwesty Cymru have a varied menu - so lots to choose from and everything I have tried has been delish!! I would recommend booking as it can be very busy... it is a very small restaurant but wonderful, with friendly and attentive staff.

My parents stayed here for 1 night and opted for the package that included dinner. The room was a good size, clean and well maintained. The food was superb and so was the service, a lovely little hotel on the sea.

Cosy restaurant looking out on the prom; small but perfectly formed. Attentive service and a wide and appealing menu, was very difficult to choose but had the soup and the stuffed pepper with Mediterranean veg and it was lovely! Had a great afternoon!

Thank you for your recent review. We are slightly concerned that you say that you paid £30 + for a Steak with nothing else. Our 10oz Sirloin steak on the daily menu is £18.95 (+£2 for a sauce if wanted) Occasionally we will have 8oz Fillet steaks on our specials menu for around £24.00. If you had nothing else you...

This is a small restaurant that serves high class food at deserving prices. The menu is small but the ingredients are always fresh and perfectly cooked. We must have eaten here close to twenty times and have NEVER has a bad course, let alone a bad meal. The restaurant is small (maybe 8 tables max) which means it's always full... More

Excellent food. As the restaurant is very small it feels very cramped with the tables having to be too close for my liking.

My wife is gluten intolerant and they had good options and wonderfully fresh and chunky gluten free bred - which is unusual. It was a 3 course meal to help celebrate our son's 21st Birthday, so it was very important that everything was right. It couldn't have been any better :)
