This pub is part of the Ffestiniog railway station at Porthmadog and serves good, well cooked food, in a friendly atmosphere -probably the best pub in town! There is also a widescreen tv showing (when we were there) world cup football, but with the sound...More

Best location in Porthmadog, good selection of beers, but the service is woeful, loads of people waiting at the bar, only one young person behind the bar, cannot pull a pint to save a life,you never see any locals there. Says it all

Very nice place to have coffee or a beer and some excellent food. Typical railway Inn with lots of nostalgic atmosphere. You can see the steam trains arrive and depart. Well recommended.

Few nice beers. Food good. Lighting far too bright in restaurant. Not dog friendly which is a shame. Fortunately just about everywhere else in Port Madoc IS dog friendly.

Very good value for money, freshly cooked breakfast with juice, toast. All locally sourced items. Well worth calling in for if you are looking for somewhere to have breakfast.

Whilst in Porthmadog we visited Spooners for a snack. The staff were helpful and the food was lovely. The sandwich my husband had was very good and the jacket potato which I chose was filling and well cooked. We'll definitely visit again.

Visited Spooner's on a wet Saturday evening in October. Didn't reserve a table and it was busy, but no problem as a table became available near enough straight away and the friendly proprietor showed us to our table. The atmosphere here is very relaxed. There...More

We shared a good value snack and shelter from the pouring rain during our visit to Porthmadog. The great thing for my husband was that he could see the trains as he drank his tea!

Situated next to the Welsh Highland Railway station in Porth Madog, Spooner's offers a great choice of beer, drinks and good value food. You can sit and watch the steam trains arrive and depart or just take in the fabulous coastal views.

Hi Linda, no we don't have a karaoke evening here in Spooner's. We have live music on occasion which is advertised on our website and a pub quiz each Wednesday evening.

Sadly at present only assistance dogs are allowed in Spooner's. Dogs are welcome in the patio seating area and in the 3rd class portions of our trains.
