Well-maintained cosy place with a stunning view. The staff were efficient and friendly - luckily the offhand person I encountered on my 2014 was not in evidence. Plenty of tea provided, but unfortunately the scones were disappointingly dry.

Situated a stone's throw from The Castle, this charming tea room has many delights to offer, not least of which are the lovely hosts. Good food served in a friendly inviting setting, what more could you ask for? Highly recommended.

Lovely quick stop today for tea, coffee and cakes. Great coffee, tasty bara brith and delicious cream and jam scones. Staff were exceptionally friendly. The view to Harlech castle from the rear patio was stunning.

We travelled through Harlech on our rather convoluted drive home and never having visited before were clearly 'passing tourist trade'. But, though drawn as much by the prospect of breakfast as location (just round the corner from Harlech Castle), we couldn't have chosen better. Not...More

We visited the castle which is impressive and stood the test of time. Visited Cemlyn Tea Shop for a coffee and hot chocolate and the most delicious Gluten Free Billionaire Tiffin, the staff are fab too. A must when at the castle.
