Yr Hen Fecws has ceased to operate as a restaurant. It is a bed and breakfast establishment only now.

Lovely food served well in a quaint old cottage. The sandwiches were good - 1 Cajun chicken, which was served hot - a bit of a surprise but still tasty and a ham one, equally tasty. Friendly staff and good specials board. Shame we weren't a spot hungrier!

We popped in at 10.55am not knowing breakfast finished at 11am. However a warm welcome and nothing not to much trouble we had a full Welsh breakfast. Yes it's slightly more expensive than a greasy spoon but Yr Hen Fecws is a quality place serving quality food. A roaring fire in the restaurant keeps you warm while you wait for... More

A very friendly place where the proprietor seemed to know his patrons.The food and service were excellent. There is an interesting specials board. The log fire was a welcome sight on a wet day.

I booked this place for my Husbands birthday after spending the day at ZipWorld Caverns. When we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and the room had a lovely decor. I would say contempary with character! Comfy bed and very nice breakfast. We would defiantly stay again and recommend friends!

Yr Hen Fecws was just down the road from our holiday accommodation and we had our first lunch in Porthmadog there as we were waiting to get into the cottage. Delicious food and great coffee and cakes. Enjoyed it so much we went there for breakfast another day and we would have gone back if we had stayed there longer.... More
