Always a welcome and frequently a log fire, attended by a large furry cat. Tea (panad in Welsh) is always more than sufficient and well brewed. Scones, cakes or bara brith is always tasty. And whilst that cat may not be so friendly, the welcome...More

Called in on the way down from the summit of y Wyddfa. What a welcome, warm and genuine. We sat outside with excellent cups of tea and coffee and slices of bara brith soon arrived free of charge. The interior is warm and spotlessly clean....More

Attempted Snowdon via the Llanberis path, failed miserably but we were still warmly welcomed. Very friendly owners, happy to chat. Even offered us a lift back down.

Ended up in this place after a long long hike to put our exhausted feet up by the fireplace enjoying a nice snowden ale. Stefan is a great host, so are the ladies behind the till selling the drinks.

Superb traditional welsh tea house. Giving accurate info regarding the prevailing conditions and a warm welcome. Not to mention the more than welcome hot fire and soup at the end of the return. Brilliant

Great welcome and hot drinks after a chilly Snowdon ascent. Had to return after last visit in 2004 which we always talked about as a family. Hot drinks and cake very welcome, with coal fires to add to to the atmosphere.
