Our Head Chef, Tom Hine, and his talented kitchen brigade are focused on creating menus with high-quality, delicious ingredients, that are as local as possible. Join us in our restaurant for lunch and dinner to enjoy great British cooking with an true emphasis on big flavour.
With views out across the gardens, and with the Snowdonia range in the distance, our restaurant is a wonderful setting for a memorable dining experience.
Enjoy our wonderful afternoon tea, with delicious cakes, homemade sandwiches and scones with clotted cream and our house jams. Choose from a selection of quality loose teas to accompany your sweet and savoury feast, or add a little sprinkle of fizz, with gin or champagne.
Thomas Hine is our new Head Chef here at Penmaenuchaf. He previously worked with Seren for several years, leading Coast restaurant in Saundersfoot.
Before his time with us he worked in some of the best kitchens in the country, and for most of his career, with his mentor Michael Caines, rising to Sous Chef at the 2 Michelin starred Gidleigh Park and then as Executive Head Chef at the Michelin starred Lympstone Manor in Devon.
Apart from being an outstanding Chef, Thomas is a keen triathlete and regularly competes in events across the country – his runs for charity are legendary!
Born and raised right here in Dolgellau, Welsh-speaking Georgia has always adored the beauty and tranquillity of the Welsh countryside.
Her journey in the hospitality industry began as an Assistant Restaurant Manager at Pale Hall Hotel, which sits on the east side of the Eryri National Park. Here she gained her first experience in a fine-dining restaurant in an historic hotel. She left the hotel world for a while to take a managerial position at Coesfaen Spa and Lodge in Barmouth, overseeing the day-to-day operations, while getting her first experience of a rewarding team management role. Keen to fulfil her aspiration to become a Restaurant Manager, she took on the role of Assistant Restaurant Manager at Fynnon Boutique Hotel in Dolgellau, where she gained a wealth of experience and further developed her people management skills. She then joined the Penmaenuchaf team in autumn 2022, and since joining our team, has continued to thrive. With her warm smile, can-do attitude and kind nature, she’s quickly become an integral part of our family here at Penmaenuchaf.
Our menu is inspired by our extraordinary location and the rich larder in North Wales. All our ingredients are of the highest quality and the best the season has to offer, and supplied by our local community of excellent producers alongside what we grow in our small kitchen garden.
As all our food is prepared freshly in the hotel, we can cater for most dietary requirements with notice. Please advise us of any dietary requirements and allergies when making your booking.
