I visited this pub last night with my boyfriend, we both had lamb shank which was cooked to perfection and excellent ale. It is in a beautiful setting, it is mid-expensive. Only gripe is that the veg were dry (microwaved). Thoroughly recommend.More

Description
The George III Hotel is an historic Inn set on the banks of the magnificent Mawddach Estuary. Originally built in 1650 the hotel now offers comfortable rooms and home cooked food to locals and guests alike who all come to enjoy great home cooked classics in a relaxed atmosphere with stunning views.

All of our food is cooked on site and so during busy times there can be a delay. We use a wide range of local produce from award winning local suppliers to provide tasty, comforting classic dishes.

We are proud to be in the 2017 Good Beer Guide and so you can always be confident of a cracking pint or real ale here.

We are always happy to help so if you have any questions or would like to make a booking please do not hesitate to contact us.
