The bakery is a must! Went in for lunch and ended up leaving with what it seemed to be the whole bakery. We also grabbed some of their homemade bread and that was delish. Will definitely be going back for the some more cakes!
Firstly let me say that this is a lovely shop but we have had a very poor experience in it.
We visited during the post covid lockdown period and as such there were social distancing measures in place, all fine, happy to oblige. We went...in after queuing with our two children. My son, 6, went to use the hand sanitiser station, held his hands underneath while I pushed the dispenser which seemed to be stuck. I pushed harder and the alcohol gel suddenly squirted out at such speed that it hit his hands and then bounced off them, directly into his eyes. Obviously chaos ensued. He was screaming, a lady, who seemed to be the manager, grabbed a bottle of water and myself and my husband took him outside and doused his eyes. It really was extremely upsetting for us all. Thankfully the water combined with his tears seemed enough to wash the gel out and after 20 minutes or so the stinging had calmed down.
I'm not really upset about the actual incident, accidents happen, thankfully there seems to be no lasting damage, but I am upset that when I went back into the shop to politely suggest they put up a warning sign or change the dispensor the same lady who had grabbed the water said the dispensor was working fine and it was my son's fault for standing too close! Now I do really have an issue with this. My son is 6, his arms were held out at length, there is no other position he could possibly be in. The stuff literally sprayed out in a high powered jet and covered his face and t-shirt.
Alcohol gel is corrosive to soft tissues and at the very least stings like a ba****d if you get it in your eyes. Blaming my son was absolutely not an appropriate response and it has upsrt me. It also worries me that it could easily happen again.More

Called into Spar yesterday not realising , it was the bakery window that attracted me , however being a huge fan of the spar in Pwllheli, I also decided to buy a few extras ,,,, milk , strawberries plus my two spinach and feta pasties...!!! I opened the milk tonight dated 15/05/20 to make evening drink and it’s sour !!!! I have to say unfortunately , just like the ladies face behind the till !!!!! Not a please, thank you , smile would have gone a long way , but nothing !!!! She was all over the gentleman in front of me , but I was very dissatisfied by her attitude towards me !!!! Sorry Spar you’ve just lost a customer , we live in the area but will find somewhere else to shop in future !!!More
We came here a few times during our week stay in Wales to get snacks, drinks and pastries! There was so much to choose from in the bakery - i loved the flapjack and my boyfriend enjoyed the rocky road. We also tried the pastries...- the bacon and cheese foldover was lovely. Great find!More
