We are pleased to announce that this Sunday saw the completion of the installation of the Defibrillator outside our Cafe so a big thank you once again to everyone who donated to the cause & to Tomos Hughes who completed the installation & has guided us throughout the campaign.

These changes have already begun with Dover Sole, Cod, Haddock, Salmon & Scampi already making

Monday morning found me in a very gloomy mood, the day before I had been subjected to a vicious verbal attack from a woman who chose to react badly to my request to keep her dog under control. I won’t go into details but it left me traumatised, her later attempts to falsify the events on facebook & no doubt in the days ahead on tripadvisor are of no surprise but even my logic cannot fully help me to realise the futility of being hurt by such abominable behaviour. As Monday afternoon wore on & my morale still side-swiped by

Well at least it is if you are visiting the cafe today. At midday yesterday our phone lines went down & this disabled our card machine. We have been onto BT repeatedly to get it fixed but it doesn’t look like a solution will be in place until sometime on Friday 19th January presumably they are a little busy after last night’s storm. Just to be on the safe side you might like to pack some cash if you are planning to visit us this weekend, sorry for any inconvenience caused but Mother Nature reminds us that she can be in

Our thanks to Alex Kendal, creator & author of this new route & Cicerone guide, who gave an excellent & informative presentation about the route & it’s creation at the cafe on Saturday night. Ticket sales raised £272.00 & will be split equally towards the BMC’s campaign to improve a notorious footpath on Cader Idris & our own campaign for a Defibrillator to be housed outside the Cafe, so thanks too to all those who attended. Alex went down well selling 19 copies of the guide book on the night but then called in again on Sunday & signed a

I am delighted to announce that our campaign in association with Achub Y Dyffren & Cardiac Charity SADS UK to purchase & install a Defibrillator outside our Cafe has got of to a flying start with the total donated so far, after just 5 weeks, already reaching £377.00. A big thank you to all who have donated so far. This will receive a further boost later today when half of the ticket sales to Alex Kendall’s talk about his Walking the Snowdonia Way Cicerone Guide book gets underway at the cafe at 8:00 pm. There are still tickets available, seE

Saturday 6th January 2018 sees us hosting Alex Kendall’s presentation of The Snowdonia Way. Alex both devised this new route & is the Author of the Cicerone guide detailing it which came into publication in February this year, details of his presentation including how to purchase tickets for it can be found on our Events page. Alex & I put this date in our diaries 9 months ago with me saying ‘I’ll aim to do it before then so that I can add insight if needed’, well time flies as did my year so inevitably by mid-December I had not

If you are wondering how to get back into trim after the coming festive season visit our Events page where I have just up-loaded somer local fell races for North Wales in January. Due to other commitments I am sadly going to have to miss Michael Corrales ‘new’ Conwy Mountain race which is a great pity because last year I took part in a pre-race recce led by Michael, loved the route but couldn’t make the race itself, maybe next year unless it again clashes with the Buff Winter Trail Half Marathon. Sorry Michael but the Buff is just a

Final reminder that this coming Saturday sees us welcome back Mike Lees to host his charity Quiz Night to raise funds for our local Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Organisation. Further details are on our Events page, it’s a great way to get into the festive spirit so we hope you can come along & enjoy the fun. The fun doesn’t end there this weekend as Sunday morning sees Eryri Harriers Fun run around Padarn Lake with fancy dress encouraged but not obligatory, better still you don’t have to be a club member to run.
