We'd not seen my wife's cousin for a long time (he lives with his wife in Aberystwyth while we live in Essex) and he suggested that this would be a good place to meet. We agree. There was a range of good range of tasty food and the prices were reasonable. The tables and chairs are of a reasonable size... More

We have been visiting for over 7 years on a regular trip from South to North Wales and on return. It is a jewel of a stop, coffee, cakes and lunches all freshly made. The owners and staff are so friendly and welcoming you feel like family in some ways. Gift shops are treasure troves worth considering for birthday, Christmas... More

We arrived for a late breakfast, but not quite ready for lunch. Choices gave us both options to keep cravings and sugar-lows at bay for a couple of hours. Opting for a toasty it was great to have one that had not come out of a packet, it was malty brown bread, grated strong cheddar cheese and a good portion... More

I used to go to Pennau Crafts for lunch when I taught at the near-by primary school weekly 10 years ago and more. We were passing in the autumn and stopped by to get something to eat and to look at the craft section which is always interesting. There is a small independent unit in the courtyard worth visiting too.... More

The seating area was clean and busy and staff were cleaning and clearing tables as soon as they became available. Toilets are clean and located in the craft section of the building. The craft...
