Hi there, my understanding is that odds are not allowed in any part of the Port Erias building, but the staff are really helpful so try giving them a call to check.

Description
Bryn at Porth Eirias With his wealth of experience as one of Britain's top chefs, Bryn Williams brings his take on a beach-front bistro to the North Wales Coast. This big open space with its easy, informal mood has an open kitchen where Bryn's team of chefs turn simple, local, seasonal ingredients into extraordinary bistro-style food. Menus are served all day by interesting people who really understand food, and there are no rules, so you can do what you like: tuck into breakfast, graze over small plates at the bar, share a Sunday feast with family, watch the sun go down with friends. Good times with good people, and no distance between you and the beach.
