Shell Islands Restaurant was converted from an old barn. The high beams are still easily visible and the carpenter’s codes for his joints are still easily visible.
Today the Restaurant is very popular with the Sunday lunch guests. People come from as far as the Midlands, just to have a day out, and enjoy a Shell Island Traditional Sunday Lunch. Traditional Sunday lunch comprises a choice of starters, followed by a choice of main course, from Roast Beef and usually roast Welsh Lamb (once a month Roast Pork) accompanied by the usual homemade Yorkshire pudding, horseradish sauce, mint sauce etc. and fresh vegetables. A choice of freshly prepared deserts from the trolley, with coffee and mints to follow.
Shell Island is well placed centrally between Harlech and Barmouth and is one of the only venues, in the area, able to serve up to 120 persons (60 only in the restaurant) for a formal meal or up to 200 persons for a full buffet. The room adjoining the restaurant is the main hall capable of seating 160 persons with an overflow being taken up in the Restaurant itself. Shell Island Restaurant does not cater for functions from April 1st until October 1st as Shell Island's primary business is catering for campers and daily visitors.
