Located in the former family home of Lord Snowdon, once the Husband of Princess Margaret, The Gunroom Restaurant is Michelin Guide listed and is so much more than a restaurant. Located in the heart of Plas Dinas Country House just 5 minutes from Caernarfon, dining with us is more of an experience than just a meal. Arrive at least 20 minutes early for a pre-dinner drink and canape which leads into your dining experience.

Our monthly changing menu uses only the freshest seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. Distinct choices of starter, main and dessert are interspersed with delicious hidden courses creating a unique experience that balances sumptuous indulgence with individual variety.

Our intimate Gunroom Bar is a great spot for a gin or a cocktail before or after dinner.

To check availability or to make a reservation for a larger table booking, please contact our team on 01286 830 214. Only a small number of tables are released to online reservations to manage the demand.

    The service was very good, as was the food. The gun room is cozy and welcoming. I scored down as we had to leave the table a bit too soon and there was nowhere else to go to sit and finish our drinks...we felt a bit rushed and the night finished earlier than we had thought. Overall a very nice experience.

    Very enjoyable evening at The Gunroom. Kicked off with slightly disappointing hor d'oevres which lacked depth of flavour but the remaining courses and intermediates were delightful and an excellent coffee to round things off. One or two glitches with the food delivery (wrong dishes; misdescription of components which created interesting challenges for the taste buds!) on what was a quiet evening perhaps something to be looked at. Nothing that spoilt the overall experience.

    Good Morning, I sent an email to PD directly a few days ago to provide feedback following dining on Thursday 28/09/2023 and am waiting for their response. Unfortunately, my friend and I were disappointed with our meals and felt there was a marked deterioration in the usual high standard of food. We are both regular customers. I have been visiting about 4 times per year since a number of years. In summary: -one of the canapés which had a black cracker type base was very difficult to chew. -the pre starter soup was tepid (yet tasty) -the butter was too solid, making it difficult to spread on the bread. The bread, however was delicious. -the satay sauce didn't compliment the scallop, it was far too overpowering for such a delicate fish. There was too much of it and it was a little odd that the waiter poured the sauce onto the plate rather than let me decide how much I wanted. The satay sauce by itself was tasty. -The gin and tonic sorbet was too sweet, but otherwise nice. -We weren't provided with steak knives. Using a regular knife to cut the steak was tricky. - The steak main course desperately needed something wet like a jus. The rib which accompanied it was dry. The green beans, chips and potato were good. -The foam on top of the toffee apple pre dessert was odd. The pastry was dull, like a shop bought one. The filling, however was very nice. -My dessert of damson melba was overly sweet and quite bland. The shot of damson liqueur was also too sweet and lacked punch. -the waiters and waitresses were pleasant but I'm assuming that they are in training at the moment as service wasn't as slick as usual. For example, one waitress took a long time to clear our dessert plates and we felt a little abandoned at that point. - As I was driving, I had a mocktail called 'princess'. It was too concentrated. Many thanks, Angharad Huws

    This was a return visit for Dinner at Plas Dinas for my husbands birthday and our 42nd wedding anniversary. It didn't disappoint! The whole experience was superb from start to finish. Will definitely be back to sample another one of their delicious menus. The treacle bread is to die for.

    Excellent food and very friendly staff. However, we were rush from the moment we entered the restaurant, to order the starter and main, and later on to choose the dessert. The waiter/waitress kept coming to check if we had finished the course to quickly serve the following one, so we couldn't really enjoy the food. It was a shame because the food was really good, but the experience overall wasn't enjoyable, as we couldn't relax.

    Our first visit to The Gunroom but hopefully not our last. We have been meaning to come here for a number of years. For various reasons it fell off our radar and that has definitely been our loss. The venue is lovely and the welcome warm. There is something to please everyone on the menu and the food was absolutely delicious. The service was friendly and attentive. A really enjoyable evening

The staff were pleasant and knowledgeable on both the food and wines. We look forward to our next dining experience at Plas Dinas.

    Lovely place nice staff good food and drink. Limited choices of food so check the menu before you go. We also knew to arrive at 5.30 to eat at 6 from reading reviews. Nicely cooked and presented. Cushion obtained with ease for the low chair. Daughter’s steak was over cooked not medium rare. We didn’t receive the third round of flight drinks but were recompensed on request. Wasn’t cheap but we felt like it was a treat.

    The experience over all was very good. Well received on arrival and offered a seat in the lounge, where we enjoyed a drink before being seated in the cosy dining room. Dinner was good, with some additional treats between courses. Generally the experience was very good. One constructive comment, the lighting in the dining room could have been a bit brighter.

    Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our meal at Plas Dinas, menu choices were great and it was difficult to make a decision as to which delicious options to go for, the complimentary additional courses were lovely and the service was perfect. I opted for salmon, beef fillet and then strawberry and my other half had Guinea fowl, lamb and raspberry - all food was fantastic and the entire experience felt indulgent and like a real treat - exactly as I had hoped it would be Thank you - we hope to return one day
