The Press Room traces its antecedents back to the 1860s when the current owner’s great-great-great grandfather published the first Conwy Visitor newspaper from here. The building, which is situated right by Conwy Castle, later fell into disuse but reopened in 2005 as a cafe and natural health shop and has been sympathetically restored with its newspaper heritage very much to the fore. The Press Room opens daytimes every day of the week for morning coffee, lunch and afternoon tea. Chef Didier previously spent 20 years in London, training originally under the Roux brothers, and as well as a choice of lighter bites like rarebits and hot and cold sandwiches, lunchtimes at The Press Room see homemade soups and quiches as well pasta bakes, jackets and the like. The specials board features fresh local produce like the famous Conwy mussels as well as cakes which are either home made or straight from the local baker. The Press Room is licensed too so you also can enjoy a glass of wine or lager with your meal. The shop here stocks a wide range of natural health foods and organic bodycare supplements.
