Worth searching for

Its not on the main street but a couple of blocks back. Really nice lunch, good specials selection. Food both very good and well presented. Would certainly make the effort to visit again the next time we are in Porthmadog.

We had B&B here for four nights. Booked by Ffestiniog Travel, as part of a railway tours of the Welsh Highlands package, it is a very convenient base, close to the harbour, a pleasant little park, and the shops. Our room was small, but spotlessly clean (thanks Maggie!) and the owners were most helpful and welcoming. They had a well... More

Another cracking breakfast at Yr Hen. Everything was well cooked and nice and hot. What was nice was that when you ask for ketchup and brown sauce you get bottles of them instead of little pots or packets. Veggie breakfast was impressive as well, according to the Mrs. Sorry for the bites out of the toast in the pictures. Also... More

Went here with family on a bank holiday Monday . Good choice of food, no particular children's menu but they were happy to serve one portion with extra plate. Delicious food, change from usual pub grub. Good service pity it is not open in the evening.

Supposed to be open to the public for breakfast every day except Sunday. Checked on website the morning of our intended visit - yes open for breakfast. Arrived with two other members of our family only to be told that they were only serving their B & B guests. Most of the tables were vacant but obvious not enough staff... More

Delicious home made fresh food and a warm welcome every time. A great menu with plenty of specials to choose from. There are even sofas by the fire. Ideal for coffee, brunch or lunch. My favourite place for lunch in the area. 5☆

My wife and I were looking for somewhere for lunch before going on the Ffestiniog Railway. Most of the cafes and restaurants we came across in the town did not appeal but we were attracted Yr Hen Fecws by the honest looking menu. We received a very warm welcome on going in and were promptly seated and shown the menu... More
