A lovely Rarebit

We almost missed this little gem, it's hard to see inside and it's not until you get in that you realise how nice it is. If you fancy a coffee there are comfy sofas with fires, and lots of tables for lunches. It's cosy, verging on cramped, but it has a great atmosphere. Service was friendly and attentive with fast...

We had been walking in beach. Experienced sudden downpour of hail stones so retreated here. Well worth it. Prawn and Marie Rose on brown yummy accompanied with salad and crisps. Welsh cake to follow. Oh the Welsh Black Dragon Cider worth a try.

Had a light business lunch with a couple of work colleagues. Light lunch does not describe the more than adequate portrions and the freshness of the ingredients.As usual a consistent delivery of good food, delivered by friendly and helpful staff and I consider it to be very good value. Well done !

Fabulous café, really welcoming log fire in winter. The food is always freshly made and the service is excellent. We always use this café when in Pwllheli and if you only want a snack the scones are amazing. Best café for miles by far, even worth going out of your way to visit

Called in today as the wind had picked up and the temperature dropped. So glad we did the sweet potato soup with chilli and mushroom soup were fab. You can tell its home made and really hits the spot. This was followed by festive turkey sandwich which was the best sandwich I've eaten for a while. Warm ciabatta , with... More

This is a lovely place to eat. The food is lovely and the staff are very friendly and attentive, even providing colouring equipment for the little ones whilst they wait. Have been here time and time again, and will continue to!
