Eating & Drinking

Within the village, and just a minutes stroll from Beddgelert House a warm Welsh welcome awaits you in The Saracen's Head Pub, The Prince Lewellyn, The Royal Goat, and the picturesque Tanronnen Arms (a favourite with photographers).

For such a small village visitors are spoilt choice  for eating venues, from gloriously quaint Tea Rooms to some of the best restaurants in the area!  Hebog Bistro and the excellent Cafe Gwyndar, both with large outside seating areas overlooking the river, are popular choice in the summer and offer delicious home cooked food.  Alternatively, Glaslyn Ice Cream Parlour serves the best chocolate Ice Cream in Britain and is always a firm favourite with our guests.

A short drive towards Nant Gwynant pass will bring you to the Cafe Gwynant (this is the base for the Watkin Path for Snowdon). This converted Welsh Chapel is in a lovely setting and the excellent menu features local produce and regional delicacies.  It is always highly recommended.

Portmerion Village offers a range of restaurants, including the excellent Castell Deudraeth.

The CAMRA Cwellyn Arms in the nearby village of Rhud Dhu always has an excellent range of local and guest cask ales and good bar food.  It is a popular choice with walkers coming down from Snowdon, as is the very welcoming Ty Mawr Tea Rooms with the biggest cake selection imagineable!

While out exploring, some of our favourite pubs include the delightful and historic Pen Y Gwrd famous for being the base of Hillary and Tenzing during their pre-Everest training.  Don't miss the Ty Coch Inn on the beach at Morfa Nefyn, recently voted top ten beach bars in the world, the White Eagle in Rhoscolyn, Anglesey, or the ancient Black Boy Inn tucked inside the walls of Caernarfon next to the Castle.
