Torrent Walk Hotel has a nice crllar bar with 5 local ales (Cwrw Llyn's a good pint) and a cider on tap. Usually where locals go from 10pm onwards.

Cross Keys, 50yds from the Torrent, is a decent local. Couple of real ales on (Purple Moose a regular).

Cwrw Cader, the local brewery, has opened a brewery pub in the Unicorn.

Dylanwad offers a wide ranging chooce of wine from all around the world. A nice place for a drink before a meal.

All in all, Dolgellau's quite small with 5 pubs/bars to drink in. There's a nice local feel to them and plenty of fun can be had on weekends. Enjoy! Iechyd Da!

Hi We're in Dolgellau next weekend. We came over Xmas period and I think we went to that hotel pub that you've mentioned.... they had a pub quiz on and was packed with locals?

One of the locals took us from cross keys to there and it was dark so can't recall the way, could you direct us please? Also don't suppose you know if there will be any entertainment on Saturday night? (18th)

Hi Laura. Could well have been the Torrent. The Cross Keys is just off Eldon Square (behind HSBC), if you pass the Cross and follow the narrow street called Wtra'r Felin,the Torrent is only around the corner - literaly a 20 second walk. There's also a pun quiz held in Tafarn y Gader (near the Torrent) and they do tapas/steaks/etc. The Unicorn has also reopened and it's certainly worth a visit. Can't help with entertainment sorry, but maybe have a look on the pubs' facebook pages. Hope you have a great time in Dolgellau.
