Mawddach Restaurant

European in Dolgellau

Occupying a smartly renovated former barn with views of Cader Idris and the estuary, Mawddach sits 2 miles west of Dolgellau on the A496. Tasteful slate floors and leather seats are matched by excellent food: poached sirloin with mushroom ragout or roasted cod with puy lentils, brown-butter breadcrumbs and salsa verde. The Sunday lunch (two/three courses £22/25) is great value.
