Served quickly food nice. Allowed you to change items on set meals if you didn't like them to what you liked. Nice setting. Handy location if you are getting the train.

Thank you for Gift Aiding your train ticket, this allows us as a charity to reclaim the tax back from the government to preserve the railway for future generations. See you again soon.

We enjoyed a great lunch here while we were visiting the Talyllyn railway. We both enjoyed the Ploughman's lunch, in particular the charcoal cheese. The café is clean and spacious and the staff are friendly and efficient. A very enjoyable experience.

The Talyllyn Railway is a historic narrow gauge steam railway, running from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol through unspoilt Snowdonia. Tywyn is home to the Narrow Gauge Railway Museum, Railway Shop and King's Licensed Cafe & Bistro. The line passes the delightful Dolgoch Falls and there are excellent forest walks at Nant Gwernol. We offer a great day out for all the family. Groups receive a discount when booked in advance.
