The Pen-y-Bont Hotel is a 16th Century Coaching Inn on the South West shore of Llyn Mwyngil (Talyllyn Lake) in Southern Snowdonia. We serve hearty Home-cooked fare on our Bar Menu, served with real, home-made chips (a rarity nowadays.)Our local regulars & repeat Holiday visitors enjoy our Steak & Ale Pie (which is full to the brim with large pieces of real steak!), Chicken & other filled Pancakes and a wide range of meals including a large vegetarian selection. We also have a Children's Menu & a Gluten Free Menu, and cater for special dietary requirements wherever possible. During the Summer dining is in the Lakeside Bar or, in warm weather, on the scenic Beer Garden along the lakeside. We also have a patio garden where you can sit and enjoy the flowers, especially if it is windy by the lake. We allow dogs on the patio. We have a room separate from the Bar where we allow diners to bring their dogs indoors.In the winter customers cosy up by the three log fires in our old Oak-beamed Fireside Restaurant. So if you have just walked up Cadair Idris or you would just like to enjoy our serene setting come and joining us for a quality meal that will not leave you wanting!
