“A real let down”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

We have been to this cafe before and always loved it! Good food.

I visited today with my parents. The restaurant was dirty, the table wasn't cleaned from the previous customers until we asked. The waitress' t-shirt even looked filthy, dust all over the counter and the little bell which was a nice idea. We had to clean off crumbs from our seats. The toilets were filthy and the seat clearly not cleaned. The waitress never smiled and didn't seem bothered we were there.

Having said this the food was ok but was expensive for what we got. It was served in good time.

We will not be returning.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

A very nice homecooked meal was had in Y Gegin Fach, and have returned there since, and we were not dissapointed the second time around either! A very nice portion and freshly cooked.

“Good food, generous helpings”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

We called at Y Gegin Fach twice recently. The first time was just for hot chocolate and bara brith / flapjack (both made in-house) on a journey through Machynlleth. This was so good we decided to have lunch there on our return journey. We both had filled baps, and intended to enjoy more bara brith and flapjack afterwards. Unfortunately this was not to be. The baps (we chose bacon & brie and ham & chutney) were huge, with really generous fillings and a good side helping of fresh, tasty salad and coleslaw. Easily the best we've had in a long time. On the downside, we had no room left for a second course. Plenty of choice on the menu, a 'specials' board of hot food, and an inviting selection of cakes etc. Table service was very good. A lovely, warm and welcoming place.
