They cater for everything, if you just fancy a snack there are sandwiches and baguettes, they also have an extensive hot meal menu, on a Friday they have Thai specials which are delicious and the Sunday carvery is out of this world. The icing on the cake is... More

Came here for Thai Friday, best ribs I've ever had, anywhere in the world. The mains were really tasty, full of flavour. We returned for my girlfriends birthday a week later. Again it was brilliant. I halighly recommend you give the place a try. I can't understand some of the bad reviews on here. Trust me, ignore the bad reviews... More

Came here from Hafan Y Mor with my friends whilst staying at Haven for a festival. Great welcome from the staff and the food was fresh and there was plenty of it. Would recommend and we will be back next year.

Came here for Sunday lunch with my sister and we sat outside because it was a gorgeous day!! Sat beside the bar where we got chatting to the friendly bar tender and helped ourselves to as much roasties and Yorkshire puddings as I could stomach. Great value for money and in a great spot for wondering about the shops afterwards!... More

Me and the family have dropped in at different times on different days and every time the food and service has been top notch. The Sunday carvery is out of this world and the Thai food is exceptional.

Description
Set in the heart of Pwllheli. The Bar is a great place to eat, drink and relax. Family friendly and with a menu to suit everyone, we also have a large Beer-garden, free Wi-Fi and are well-behaved Husband and Dog friendly. We pride ourselves on using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible, even down to the potatoes in our famous Home-made Chips! We look forward to welcoming you, whether it is for a full meal, snack, or a drink in our partially covered heated/welsh summer-proofed beergarden.
