Conwy mussels and Welsh lamb emerge from an open kitchen, terrace views soar to Cadair Idris. Reward hilly walks with a Sunday roast

Read guest comments

Nicol and Dewi have worked wonders breathing new life into this stone built former farmhouse. A steel and glass entrance leads to a modern bar with flagstones, exposed stonework and beams, contemporary sofas, designer bar stools and sleek lighting. Take a pint of Purple Moose's Snowdonia to the terrace and gaze up at lofty Cadair Idris – a giant's seat indeed. Food from the open kitchen comes with impeccable local credentials and the char-grill complements the meats perfectly. What could be more local than Conwy mussels, leeks and cream followed by confit leg of Welsh lamb with a rosemary and honey gravy? There are Sunday roasts too, light bites, and afternoon teas. A 15-minute drive brings you to delightful Barmouth and the coast.
