We were looking at places to eat in Dolgellau and found it left of the ship hotel, I ordered a steak & ale pie . The helpings were good it was a good job we didn't ask for starters we wouldn't have coped. we were there again on Friday the 17th of august, also if the staff are in the kitchen there is a service buzzer on every table which I haven't seen any where else.

This is so much more than a cafe! We had an evening meal here to rival any 5* restaurant. Such attention to detail - this was an absolute delight to visit. Slightly small inside, so tables are close together, but this was quaint and cosy, not cramped. Lovely pleasant staff. Really enjoyed our visit.

Having searched around Dolgellau for somewhere to eat (half the places seemed to have run out of food or stopped serving at 7!) we stumbled across Y Sospan. We didn’t have high hopes for the little cafe, but how wrong we were! Two delicious meals; my husband had the pesto chicken and I had the steak and ale pie. Friendly and helpful staff, fab food and a cosy atmosphere. We will definitely be visiting again next time we’re in the area!
