We visited for lunch And had a lovely meal with great service and friendly locals. Our dog was also welcomed and looked after too. Would recommend the pie of the day or the sportsman’s burger. Great value for money.

Many thanks for your five star review. We do pride ourselves on value for money, delicious food, both in the bar and the restaurant. And we always welcome dogs and children into Gelert's Bar. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Is this the best kept secret in Porthmadog or am I the last to know? Exceptionally well cooked and seasoned food served generously and piping hot. Delicious from starters, to great coffee and homemade christmas tree shortbread. The common areas in the hotel are pleasant enough but unexceptional which made the food all the more of a surprise. Chefs who know food and front of house staff who serve calmly and professionally. New Year's Resolution - to work my way through the other menus in 2018! Diolch Gwesty Royal Sportsman.

Thank you for your glowing review of Christmas Day lunch. We do pride ourselves on our delicious home-cooked food with special touches like the homemade Christmas tree shortbread! Our high-calibre chefs consistently create exceptional meals at great value and our front of house team strive to be as efficient and unobtrusive as possible. We have always aimed to make our food the best in the Porthmadog area and eventually want to become THE place to eat in Gwynedd. We look forward to helping you stick to your New Year’s Resolution!

Place was dead except for my party of 6. We went staying in the hotel just passing by and was hungry.. it has an extensive menu with some thing for everyone at a good price too. Six mains and 12 drinks was under 130 pounds. If passing by give it a try

Thank you very much for popping in as you passed by. You obviously enjoyed our generously portioned, freshly cooked meals, not only for the taste but the value for money they represent.

We serve evening meals from 6pm-9pm so, if you come at either end of service, you may find the restaurant to be quiet. We do generally get busy during peak dining times and it is always advisable to book if you do wish to dine at a specific time.

We hope you are passing by again soon.

Very good value for money with naturally friendly staff. The breakfast was excellent and cooked to order, I had a delicious scrambled egg and smoked salmon Muffin and Chris had Eggs Benedict with both having a full English on the second day. Had dinner also last night and it was delicious. The beer was good but we also discovered Purple Moose Brewery just down the road at The Australian which is wonderful and our food destination tonight after a cold but enjoyable day at the Llechwedd Deep Mine and The Off-Road Quarry Explorer. All in all a fantastic short break helped by Good Beer, Good Food, and Lovely People.

Room Tip: That long since I slept in a single bed. And it showed. My fault, not the hotels

Many thanks for your lovely review. We are glad you appreciated the value for money, friendly staff and excellent, cooked-to-order breakfast and dinner. We remember that cold November night when you joined in with our weekly Pub Quiz in our cozy Gelerts Bar where we also serve the local Porthmadog ale, Purple Moose. We hope you are able to come and stay with us again, and enjoy some more of the many attractions Snowdonia has to offer.

From check in to check out via a trip to the bar and an excellent breakfast, the Royal Sportsman is a great place to stay in Porthmadog.
Very central, warm, clean and very welcoming. An ideal choice for a stop over.
We didn’t have dinner here, but the menu looked very good.
