Very good value for money, freshly cooked breakfast with juice, toast. All locally sourced items. Well worth calling in for if you are looking for somewhere to have breakfast.

Whilst in Porthmadog we visited Spooners for a snack. The staff were helpful and the food was lovely. The sandwich my husband had was very good and the jacket potato which I chose was filling and well cooked. We'll definitely visit again.

Visited Spooner's on a wet Saturday evening in October. Didn't reserve a table and it was busy, but no problem as a table became available near enough straight away and the friendly proprietor showed us to our table. The atmosphere here is very relaxed. There...More

We shared a good value snack and shelter from the pouring rain during our visit to Porthmadog. The great thing for my husband was that he could see the trains as he drank his tea!

Situated next to the Welsh Highland Railway station in Porth Madog, Spooner's offers a great choice of beer, drinks and good value food. You can sit and watch the steam trains arrive and depart or just take in the fabulous coastal views.

A nice spacious bar. Refreshments very good. Food (chicken/chips/peas) was very tasty but the portions were a bit on the small size for 2 adults!

If you like good beer and steam engines then Spooners is the place for you. The station buffet bar is situated between 2 steam railways and you can sit on the platform and watch the trains go by. Magic!

Well - what can I say? Oh yes - triangular battered fish (really? In this day and age?) chips like cardboard filled with insulation foam, a toasted sandwich made with 'free from' taste. How can supposed brown bread with ham, cheese and red onion taste...More

Good morning Martin, we are sorry that you did not enjoy eating in Spooner's that is a shame. We hope that if you return to the railway that you would give us another try.

Sadly at present only assistance dogs are allowed in Spooner's. Dogs are welcome in the patio seating area and in the 3rd class portions of our trains.
