We had a lovely lunch here whilst in Barmouth! We sat outside and looked over the beach. It's always busy which only proves how nice the food and location is! Would definitely return! 👍🏻

We visited here on our last day for breakfast. Lovely little place, proper mug of tea and superb hot fry up. Same atmosphere as the last inn {same owners}, but great all the same.

We visit the Locker regularly, for coffee and teacakes and occasionally lunch, and always enjoy the food, atmosphere and excellent service. The staff are helpful, friendly and super efficient. We are never disappointed.

Thank Bob D
