Our feedback is stellar, as it often has been regarding Chris and Gunna Chown’s wonderful retreat – a Grade II listed restaurant-with-rooms outside Pwllheli, which they took back from a management company that they felt had made a poor fist of running it after they retired. We’ve left it un-rated however as change is again afoot – having recently failed to sell the business as a going concern, in October 2018 they announced they are now applying for planning permission to sell it as a residence as they no longer feel it is viable as a restaurant.

Set in a “glorious” country location, this landmark restaurant-with-rooms boasts nearly three decades in business. Following a brief handover to other management in 2016, longtime owners Gunna and Chris Chown have resumed control of the property to ensure a continuation of the impeccable standards that have carved its reputation.

For 29 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
