Popped in today with the dog before we started our walk to Fairbourne. We had the Full Breakfast which was tasty and filling. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the chef even brought out a bowl of water for my four legged friend.

I have visited this place since I was born nearly 50 yrs ago, every time we visited Barmouth as kids we would go. Under previous ownership it used to open very early and not close until 9pm where we would sit and drink hot chocolate before bed. It isn't open as early or late now unfortunately. Anyway, it's not as... More

We always pop in here for a panini whilst visiting Barmouth, always sure of a warm welcome with lovely staff who are friendly and accommodating are fussy children and even brought our dog a bowl of water. Great food, but not many seats so don't tell everyone! My favourite place after a stroll on the beach x

It is good standard fare at a seaside cafe in a beautiful location in an historic building. Quaint inside but outside,on dry days, protection offered by thick walls is a huge draw for tourists and locals alike.

A visit to Barmouth wouldn't be the same without eating ar Davy Jones Locker. The milky coffee and steak mushroom and onion sandwich are fab. As is all food and drinks. Love the inside so different and outside has great harbour views.

Yes. Called in here every day of our short break for refreshments. Very dog friendly and seating outside to take in the harbour views. Just a pity there not open on the evenings as inside makes for a nice romantic setting.

A wonderful situation. Hot chocolate 's a dream , just the place to rest your weary legs and just sit to admire the view across the estuary.

We were passing through Barmouth on a beautiful but cold and windy Sunday and in need of some lunch. This little cafe was quite full even in the off season and there was a regular flow of customers. We enjoyed a simple lunch from a menu that has plenty of options and there is a good selection of cakes and... More
