The Last Inn has always led the way, but now has a contender. Really pleased to see another venue of this quality in the Town. Only stopped for a quick drink, so didn't eat but the place has a stylish atmosphere. Will return...!

While website does not refer to food, it does not state that meals, other than breakfast, are not available. As such, this is no longer a “Restaurant”! I booked myself and 3 cleeagues in there for B&B this weekend and only found out that no food when I tried to place bookings for dinner. Had I known they did not do evening meals, I would not have booked rooms there, but now too late to book elsewhere and lose a nights booking fee.

Hi Roger,
As you mention our website has been updated since we stopped doing our tapas style food, to reflect the fact that we are a bar with rooms.
Our booking.com page (your preferred booking method) has also been updated to reflect that there is no longer a resteraunt on site.
Both of these updates occurred prior to your booking. You were also advised by email to your booking.com email address of the change 3 days after your booking and 4 weeks approximately prior to your arrival date, where you were offered the opportunity to cancel without any cancellation fees, this is an offer that still stands.
Unfortunately TripAdvisor is a bit more complicated to change when there are recent reviews, however you will note this has also been updated, to show as serving "Drinks" as this is at present the best soloution available.
Hopefully not being able to dine with us will not distract from your stay as there are many excellent establishments within a short walk of the Tilman.

This place is great for Barmouth, they certainly have the monopoly for sure but the Tapas could be better. We booked for dinner and ordered several small plates as you do. We were disappointed overall, the beetroot and goats cheese salad especially, 2 tiny squares of cheese were found and a small amount of beetroot hidden by lettuce to bulk out the dish. Tiny portions all round for not so tiny prices sadly. Try Tafarn Y Gader in Dolgellau for tapas....not such trendy surroundings but better, more authentic food for sure and you don't have to order or pay at the bar which is tricky when full of people crowding the bar for drinks. We wouldn't book here for dinner again.
