WHERE TO EAT OUT AROUND THE LLŶN PENINSULA…
The Bryncynan Inn is the closest pub which serves food. Situated on the outskirts of Nefyn, it serves good pub food and is recommended for a meal out. There is a childrens’ play area outside as well as a good-sized car park. As you enter Nefyn go straight on at the mini roundabout. Carry on along this long road and eventually you will come to a roundabout where you can see the Bryncynan in front of you.
GLYN Y WEDDW ARMS,
The Glyn y Weddw is one of our favourite pubs. A great meal awaits, as well as a log fire. Children are welcome and there is also a good carvery. The Glyn y Weddw is in Llanbedrog – head towards Abersoch and you will see the pub on the left.
Dylan’s Restaurant in Criccieth is fantastic. Being right on the seafront you will have spectacular views. Their good menu is crammed with local food. Dylan’s prides itself in sourcing only the freshest local ingredients. Local seafood is a speciality and it is a real treat. Pre-book a table so you are not disappointed.
The Ship Inn is in Edern, a small village not far from Gors-lŵyd. Very popular with our guests, The Ship serves good quality home made gastro-style pub food. A good night out for couples and families – but please be aware that The Ship does not allow children under the age of 10.
The Ty Newydd is in picturesque Aberdaron. Ty Newydd is overlooking the sea and beach. To make the most of the location, you have the option to eat on the terrace and watch the world go by. Wonderful!
TŶ COCH INN,
The Tŷ Coch is a must when visiting Gors-lŵyd. It has been voted as one of the best beach bars in the world(!) It is situated directly on the beach of Porthdinllaen, Morfa Nefyn. To get to the pub you have to walk either along the beach or along the golf course. Full details of the walk can be found on our “Walks” page. During the winter it is only open on Saturday and Sunday for drinks only – so definitely worth checking their opening times before you go! Oh, and the Tŷ Coch does not serve chips – just in case you need to know!
Plas Bodegroes is very close to Gors-lŵyd on the outskirts of Efailnewydd. A beautiful Georgian manor house which has gained top culinary awards – “Good Food Guide Restaurant of The Year” and a “Michelin Star”. Modern cuisine and local ingredients – a very special treat!
From its elevated position, Tremfan Hall has spectacular views over towards Abersoch and Cardigan Bay. A special location offering excellent food and wine. Also an excellent Sunday lunch menu. Look out for the Tremfan Hall sign on your right as you enter Llanbedrog heading for Abersoch.
RHYD Y CLAFDY
The Twnti (pronounced “Tunti”) has an excellent menu, specials board and a selection of real ales. A separate dining room is available and it is recommended that you book, especially on a Friday or Saturday.
& CASTELL DEUDRAETH
Remember “The Prisoner” series in the 60’s? Then you will remember Portmeirion. A stunning Italianate village designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. The hotel dining room is open every day. In the afternoons enjoy light lunches, snacks or afternoon tea. In the evenings it has an excellent A la carte menu – reservations are recommended. There is also the choice to dine in Castell Deudraeth which is located within the grounds of Portmeirion overlooking the Victorian gardens. Again, reservations are recommended.
Good old JD Wetherpoons! In Pwllheli you will find this large pub opposite the train station. The service is quick and the fresh meals always popular. Families welcome.
