Peppino's restaurant is Porthmadog's only dining room, restored in early 2009, with its original wooden floor, discovered in late 2009 and dating back to 1862 when the hotel was built. New curtains and lights have been selected to complement the look and the light high-back dining chairs have been added giving a contemporary twist to complete the elegant and stylish appearance.
"Overall an impressive room with its new contemporary style, particularly the wooden flooring, high backed oak chairs and new fabrics"
- AA Inspector.
The Porthmadog restaurant is a bright 50-cover restaurant, overlooking the patio garden, for both residents and non-residents; children and guide dogs welcome. Located on the ground floor, it has easy access for all guests who have difficulty in walking.
It is open for breakfast every day, for lunch during the week from April to October, A la Carte meals daily the evening, all served in comfortable surroundings. Peppino's is open for Sunday lunch throughout the year, ideal for an unhurried family get together with the focus on freshly cooked Welsh roasts.
For those who like good 'old' traditional favourites, Char Grilled Welsh Rib Eye Steaks, lager battered fresh fish of the day, our own Tandoori chicken and Glamorgan Pork & Leek Bangers 'n' Mash (real mash!) with home made breads and hand cut chunky chips.
There is a great selection for vegetarian and vegan dining. We have cherry tomato penne pasta, Risotto, South Italian style, and another signature dish, a Mozzarella and Red Onion Tart which, Patti Bright from the Daily Post, August 2009, described as “absolutely delicious .”
Sunday lunch at the Royal Sportsman is very much a traditional affair. The Sunday Lunch incluses Welsh Roasts of the day, wonderful roast potatoes with a hint of garlic and rosemary, large Yorkshire puddings and four varieties of fresh vegetables.
We also cater for vegetarian, vegan and other customers who have special dietary requirements, including diabetics and those who can only eat wheat and lactose free meals. All such meals are freshly prepared to order.
Nothing but fresh food for children in this hotel! We have designed a simple healthy options menu based on fresh fish, char-grilled chicken, Welsh roasts, Welsh sausage and mash and penne pasta with freshly made sauces.
Breakfast at the Royal Sportsman is described by many customers as one of the best in Snowdonia and caters for every taste. Cereals, Juices, fresh fruits, real porridge, wonderful local fruity Welsh yoghurts, Welsh honeys, home-made jams and marmalade with bread made in our kitchen. The coffees are fair trade and a wide range of traditional, herbal and fruit teas is available for those who want something light.
Customers who want a cooked breakfast, there are now several choices: smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, poached haddock topped with a poached egg, a vegetarian option, a Chef's special and, finally, a full traditional Welsh. The latter includes individually grilled local farm bacon, award winning sausages, organic hen eggs, grilled tomatoes, pan fried mushrooms, sautéed potatoes and Heinz baked beans!
