Decent cafe/bar; very handy when going on the Ffestiniog railway.

Spooners is located on the station and is perfect for passengers on the Blaenau Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways. Good food and beers.

Been to Spooners on several occasions, and had have received a mixed service. The bar staff are lovely and friendly. However, the food side is not as good. The first time we went (party of 6) the food took over an hour late because they forgot our order. Second time (we thought we would give them the benefit of the doubt, the food arrived on time and was okay. Then on our most recent visit we were turned away at 7pm due to a booking of 15, we got the feeling that they couldn't be bothered rather than run out of food. Really disappointed hence the review.
In its favour Spooners is 'different' it is on the platform of the mountain railway and has a train engine in the bar area.
