“Spectacular views to Snowdownia from riverside pub”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We stopped off on our cycle ride back to Dolgellau along the riverside cycle track to Barmouth.
The white painted pub has a cosy but somewhat dark interior with seating outside overlooking the Mawddach Estuary and the old toll bridge. It can get very busy. I had a good pint of real ale and my wife had a coffee. Both were acceptable - not brilliant but okay.The toilets were clean and the staff friendly and polite.
This was our second visit in three years (on holiday from England). If in the area again we would visit again.

“Fabulous Sunday Lunch with friends”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Have just enjoyed a fabulous sunday lunch with friends at this wonderful restaurant. A lovely sunny afternoon overlooking Penmaenpool, with a table booked for lunch - what better way to spend a bank holiday sunday. The carvery lunch was superb, I have never seen such a wide selection of vegetables, all freshly cooked, carrots, carrot & swede mash, peas, cauliflour cheese, cheesy leeks, cheesy mash, broccolli, red cabbage, new potatoes, roast potatoes, enormous yorkshire puddings, 3 very tender meats to choose from and the roast parnsips were the best ever. I would recommend this for sunday lunch at a very reasonable price of £9.95 pp. I would also recommend that you book a table - it's more relaxing as it is a very busy place, especially as it is on the Mawddach Cycle Trail. Go and try it, food, atmosephere and location is superb.

“Excellent bar meals”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

My wife and I often visit this hotel for a bar meal during the summer evenings. As it is within walking distance of our home it makes for a very pleasant evening and we are never disappointed. We decided, on the spur of the moment, to walk there last Saturday evening and found on arrival that both the upstairs rooms and the downstair bar areas were pretty full, as were the outside tables. However, we managed to secure a table and ordered meals at the bar. We were told that due to the volume of meals being ordered that they weren't serving starters. That wasn't a problem as we rarely have starters, as the main courses are generous. We were also told that there would be a twenty minute wait. This wasn't a problem either, twenty minutes being nothing in terms of waiting for a meal. Twenty minutes later our meals arrived. Due to it being so busy I half expected the quality of the food to be compromised but no such thing - my gammon, pinapple and chips (+ mushroom, tomatoes) was excellent, as was my wife's goat's cheese tartlets and salad. These meals cost in region of £10 and were excellent value - you won't get better value bar meals than this in the Dolgellau area.

“Best sunday lunch / carvery in Snowdonia”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The place was heaving, but for the right reasons- the carvery was excellent- good quality meat (though would have been nice if it was rarer) and perfectly cooked veg including more unusual and higher end veg like leaks, red cabbage- perfect yorkshire pudding...my wife and I have high standards in food and are sure this made the grade. Slightly mofe expensive than usual pub grub (just under £10) but worth it.

“Stunning location, good pub grub for walkers.”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We have eaten here many times, as it is on the railway walk along Mawddach Estuary so we normally have a pub lunch. This time we booked a table for 4 in the old restaurant, which is essentially a pub meal with place setting. Food and drinks ordered at the bar. Good selection of real ale, and an extensive menu. The starters were huge and this caused a problem with the main course, and I would probably share a starter or simply go for mains. The choice includes traditional pub food (fish and chips, pies, scampi etc), lamb, beef, duck dishes, various Italian offerings and the odd oriental dish. Again portions were large so our side of chips not required. Ambiance very good, time to be served was very long due to being busy. Ideally I would sit outside or by a window for the view. Enjoyed the meal but not fairly average quality of food. So I would describe this as an ideally walkers pub and not a romantic evening restaurant. We had no room left to consider puddings!
