This place had character about it. Not plush or fancy and a little cramped in the main dining area but the lovely view out of the window watching the steam train, the lovely food and relaxed atmosphere made it a pleasant experience. We had a...mix of food between us. Pasta dishes, sloppy joe wrap and a sandwich. Added bonus was that the eatery is dog friendly. Our dog was welcomed in without problems.More

We stopped here for a coffee whilst waiting for a steam train as it is very close, over the footbridge, from the station. It was very pleasant, ideally situated with views down to the station. There is a wealth of informatory leaflets for attractions in...the area. The prices are reasonable and even more so if having bought a ticket on the Ffestiniog railway and obtained the discount voucher. We called in again later on our return for tea and cakes but it was closed.More

Only found this thanks to being handed a leaflet as we left the station with our dogs and were told it was pet friendly. Friendly, prompt service of hot soup and chunky bread just right for our wet day. Would have been nice to sit...on the terrace and enjoy the view had the weather been better. Good value and nice choice of food. Ideal stop from our train tripMore

We stopped here for some lunch before going back to Porthmadog, what a find! Absolutely beautiful place, friendly staff, reasonably priced and extremely tasty. I had the soup which came with some lovely thick bread, my husband had a sandwich again on lovely soft thick...bread and our daughter had a chicken pasta dish which she thoroughly enjoyed. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate the number of customers, moving tables and chairs so that families could sit together and always with a smile and “no problem “ . Well worth a visit.More

After a trip on the train enjoyed a lovely coffee and cake. Delicious homemade cakes and definitely worth the special touch of having them warm with cream
