Went camping for 7 nights near by so went into Barmouth almost every day. Lots to look at in terms of small quirky shops. A few good restraunts to go to. We went to the Anchor steak house (nice but expensive) and we went to the pizzeria next door. Both are by the railway bridge at the lower end of the town by the water side. Lots of places to go crab fishing at low tide which the kids loved. Local chip shop had a queue out of the door all day and night and it was excellent.
