Lovely lunch

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

There was 6 of us in need of sustenance and Andy and Diane recommended this place so off we went. Excellent meet and greet by the owners and shown to a lovely table to fit us all in. Nice log fire going in the restaurant area and everything was clean as a whistle. Big breakfast time and loads of coffee,... More

We had just returned from Thailand and found N. Wales weather really cold, We popped in to Yr Hen Fecws just for a coffee which was excellent but the log fire was so warm and cosy as was the welcome we stayed to lunch, The Thai meal they prepared was as good or better than any I tried in Thailand...

Love this place, I'm from the area but moved away, always come here for a visit when I am home. Beautiful, fresh food with a great variety. But pricey for lunch but always worth it :)
