Welcome to The Mariner Bistro and Café Bar website! We are an independent eaterie in the heart of the thriving market town of Pwllheli on the Lleyn Peninsula. You can find us just around the corner from where the Wednesday market is held, and just around another corner from the Railway station.

In 2014 the lease was taken over by Mandy Shaw who runs the catering side of the enterprise whilst her husband, Paul acts as “front of house” and runs the bar.
