WELSH FOOD & DRINK
There’s a great range of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants within 10 minutes drive of Graig Wen. From salt marsh lamb to Cardigan Bay crab and Dolgellau’s delicious specialty honey buns, you’ll find plenty to tingle your tastebuds!
Dolgellau has an excellent butchers, artisan bakery, wholefood store and greengrocers as well as a couple of small supermarkets. You can visit “Sausage Sue” at our local farm to pick up freerange eggs, bacon and sausages. Every Thursday there’s a small market in Dolgellau selling locally made jams and baked goods, and there’s a large street market every Wednesday in Machynlleth (a stunning half hour drive through the mountain pass) which is good for fresh veg too. You can order fresh fish from the seaside town of Aberdyfi. You’ll find a warm welcome in our independent stores where you’ll hear the Welsh language being spoken – try saying Diolch / thanks!
Those who fancy a craft beer or lager from one of our local breweries can buy them here on site. There’s a beach bar in Fairbourne or work up a thirst walking along the Mawddach Trail for a pint in the George III pub. Dylan’s new wine bar and shop in Dolgellau has an excellent range of unusual, good value wines by the glass. Or if you’re looking for a boozer with a great atmosphere to watch the rugby then we’ll point you in the right direction! Iechyd Da! / Cheers!
