Pubs, bars and cafes

Bryn Awel Sea View Cottages are just a few minutes walk from Barmouth’s main streets.

Our nearest pub is The Royal, great beer and very much a local’s pub. Also very close is The Tal-y-Don, in the main square area. This pub has lots of outdoor seating, and catches the afternoon sun so is a great place for a pint and some people watching.

Moving along the main street the next 2 pubs are The Barmouth and The Tilman, the newest addition to Barmouth’s pub scene. The Barmouth and The Royal are good for watching the big matches on TV, especially Welsh rugby fixtures! The Tilman is very stylish, with an excellent range of tapas if you feel a bit peckish.

The last pub, in terms of distance from the cottages, is The Last Inn. Its well worth walking right through town to this very atmospheric pub, an extremely popular bar, with an excellent menu of yummy pub grub. You need to book in season. It might be the furthest from the cottages but it’s only about 10 minutes walk.

There are three restaurants in Barmouth, The Bank, Bistro Bermo and the Inglenook Seafood Restaurant. Both have limited opening times and seating so you need to book. There are other restaurants but we think that they sort of double as cafes so are going to include them below in our cafe round up.

And where do I start with cafes? Barmouth has lots of great cafes, some staying open in the evening in the season.

Davy Jones Locker down in the harbour area is open from 9am to 6pm every day all year round so is a firm favourite because you know it will be open. They serve a really nice range of cafe food, always well prepared and produced reasonably quickly. There is plenty of outdoor seating if you have your dog, and many holiday-makers do, and a cosy inside for cold days.

Also in the harbour area is The Lobster Pot, offering, would you believe it, lobsters and also crab and prawns in delicious recipes. The Anchor is a great cafe, with Welsh steak a speciality and next door the Isis Pizzeria does pizzas and other tasty menu options. Around the corner on the beach side, is The Bath House, a day time cafe with lots of tables overlooking the beach. Also in the harbour area is the Knickbocker ice cream parlour. If you love ice cream a visit here is a must but be prepared for queues on a hot day, you will soon be served and it will be worth the wait.

Back on the main street we must mention Myrddins. This is more of a restaurant but with a cafe feel in the daytime. Its open all year round, including evenings, so like the pubs is a good option for an out of season break.

The nearest cafes to the cottages are Murrays and the Belle Vue, both are very good, Murrays has a particularly great choice of cakes and biscuits, all home made.

There are lots of other options, including the sea front hot dog and candy floss places.

And 3 really good fish and chip shops – a seaside staple –  The Mermaid, the Dolphin and The Harbour.

So happy eating to our visitors!
