Food and Drink
At the foot of Snowdon


Cwellyn Arms is a family-run traditional country inn and restaurant with accommodation at the foot of Mt. Snowdon.

As owners of the Cwellyn Arms for over 30 years we have experience within the hospitality and restaurant industry and strive to do our utmost to ensure an enjoyable visit or stay.

We are a “real ale” pub and serve up to 9 “real ales” at any one time.

Most of our “real ales” are sourced from various selected micro breweries offering a continued variety of choice: see our current guest ales.

Our Head Chef, Thomas, provides excellent food using fresh local ingredients as much as possible: see menus.

All our food is prepared from fresh ingredients on the premises and we take time and care in sourcing quality local suppliers.

Our Seasonal menus are served throughout the inn or relax in the spacious comfort of our new rustic, warm and welcoming, 40 seater Restaurant with underfloor heating and log burning stove.

We do advise to book for Evening Meals to avoid disappointment.

Breakfast can be arranged for all residents, whether camping or staying in our other accommodation, at Cwellyn Arms with prior notice.

Our policy is and has always been that priority is given to residents and bookings.

The food hygiene rating shown above
reflects the standards held where we have achieved a top rating of 5 – Very Good.

We have selected a fairly eclectic wine list which highlights a high quality, good value mix of wines from around the world.

Wherever possible we have selected our wines with the menu very much in mind. Whatever you choose to eat there should be something on the list to suit the meal.

Should you just want a casual glass at the bar then we are also very pleased with our House selections which come from France and Germany.

And when it comes to a BIG celebration or you are simply pleased with your efforts for the day then why not indulge in a bottle of fizz, ranging from an excellent Cava from Spain or choose from two of the greatest Champagnes in the world. Cheers!

Cwellyn Arms is the perfect place to complement your visit to this area of outstanding natural beauty. We are an ideal base for exploring the whole of Snowdonia and North Wales see our accommodation pages for more details.
