A brief history
Tafarn y Plu was built as the Feathers Inn 200 years ago. It’s the only remaining inn of five that once serviced the village.

Landlord John Ellis Hughes and his sister Hannah Mary circa 1892

  Croeso – Failte – Welcome to Tafarn Y Plu!

Some of you will be aware that the sale of this inn to community benefit society Menter y Plu has been confirmed, and is now ongoing subject to contract. They have some very exciting plans for the future: have a look at their website Meantime we remain committed to providing our usual high standards of food and drink, even though our hours will of necessity be somewhat curtailed as we fit in other commitments as we prepare for our new future. They will be regularly updated on this website, our Facebook page and our Tripadvisor listing.
We currently open for food and drink at 6pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Enjoy a traditional warm Welsh welcome in this family-run Grade II listed inn, with its highly traditional interior that has won it the accolade of being one of only 100 nationwide listed in CAMRA's publication Real Heritage Pubs of Wales. It stands directly opposite former British prime minister David Lloyd George's boyhood home in the picturesque village of Llanystumdwy, just off the A497 between Porthmadog and Pwllheli, just a stone's throw from the fascinating Lloyd George Museum and his last resting place. Learn how this founding father of Welsh nationhood brought about a plethora of social changes, including the old age pension.

And we're only 200 yards from the popular Llyn Coastal Path, now part of the world-renowned Wales Coastal Path, as it passes through Llanystumdwy.

We've won several business awards for our food, our welcome and our practices down the years. So enjoy yourselves as you look through our extensive menu sipping your choice from our range of Welsh real ales, ciders, wines and spirits, together with international brands. We've been awarded yet again the maximum five stars in the Food Standards Agency Wales Food Hygiene Rating scheme.
Fully sated, you can then visit Lloyd George's grave just around the corner, or enjoy one of the myriad easy-to-tackle walks that criss-cross this beautiful area.

Well-behaved children are welcome throughout the establishment, although we do insist that parents/guardians keep them in check, and away from the serving areas. But be aware that we strictly adhere to the law as regards serving alcohol to those under 18, and will ask for photographic proof of age if any patron is fortunate enough to appear to be under 21.

And in keeping with the spirit of legislation currently making its way through the Senedd, we would request that electronic cigarettes should not be used indoors. You are more than welcome to do so in the beer garden, patio or in the smoking shelter.
We welcome small dogs into the public bar only, subject to there being available space, with the dogs to be under control, on a lead, and off the furniture. No meals are served in the public bar on Friday evenings. Otherwise, dogs and their best friends are welcome in the extensive beer garden or on the patio, where there'll be a supply of fresh drining water.

There's ample free parking in the public car park just 100 yards away, while the No 3 Pwllheli-Porthmadog-Pwllheli bus, running via Criccieth, Chwilog, Abererch and the Hafan y Mor holiday centre, passes our front door up to three times an hour during peak periods.
Criccieth railway station on the Cambrian Coast line is just a mile away. For travel information in Welsh or English contact Traveline Cymru on 0871 2002233, visit, or use the public transport travel wizard below.
