This pub is closed. Unsure when/if it will reopen. If you're staying at top of harlech be aware the only pubs are at the bottom of the hill so consider getting home!!

The only pub once you have climbed the hill. Small selection of real ale. Owners are new so in the midst of refurb in and out which is in need. Friendly staff and good food.
