Llanbedrog beach bar

The Abersoch Spirit Company

Welcome to Llanbedrog Beach Bar

We look forward to welcoming you to the beach bar which is open daily from 9am, serving breakfast until 11am, and meals from 12 noon to 6pm. We are dog friendly, and request that dogs are always kept on leads. The closing times will vary according to the weather conditions during Autumn/Winter.

Voted one of UK’s Top 20 Beach Bars

Voted in the top 20 best beachside bars in the UK in 2018 by the Sunday Times the Llanbedrog bar & Restaurant is located on a beautiful sandy National Trust beach a stunning place in a location to die for.

With its sunny sheltered terraces and a cosy restaurant, it is contemporary in style, cool in nature, mellow in outlook and utterly stunning in terms of views.

Sitting sheltered from any winds by a gleaming glass balustrade that surrounds the deck area you have views right across the bay – over to Pwllheli, Criccieth, Porthmadog and the necklace of beaches that encircle Cardigan Bay.

To your right, you have the beautiful, heavily wooded headland of Mynydd Tir y Cwmwd (Llanbedrog headland) with the ‘Tin Man’ standing guard above.

We are right at the foot of lower Llanbedrog, where the little stream that runs alongside the road down from the village and past the bar, tumbles onto the sands.

There’s an ‘outside-outside’ section of the restaurant, comprehensively protected by high-tech awnings and an ‘inside-outside’ section with awnings and electrically operated drop blinds that will particularly suit those sandy-toed visitors making there happy way up from the beach, providing protection from the elements but offering the opportunity to sit right on the ‘edge of the world’ that is Llanbedrog beach and its ‘to die for’ views.

The addition of patio heaters and blankets means customers are comfortable whatever the weather.

So why not come and join us for a drink, a spot of lunch.

We would love to see you soon.

Beautiful beach cafe with clean loos. Dog friendly and very welcoming, if a little chilly because though covered, the eating area is outdoors. We are well for a fair price and enjoyed the experience.

What our customers say

  • We have been visiting the Aqua Bar often during the summer holidays and also took our family from South-Africa there. We thought of writing this review as we've never been disappointed! It's a hidden gem! The customer service is outstanding. Family-run to the Highest standard. The owners are front of house. Very friendly and will go the extra mile to help. The food is outstanding and they cater for all. Old, young, families or couples, animals or no-animals, smokers or non-smokers and also catering for the colder days. We can highly recommend this place and can see a bright future for them.


  • We stumbled upon Aqua beach bar for the first time this year and I have to say "What a great place" fantastic food, happy smiley staff and brilliant atmosphere! We came for lunch and loved it so much that we booked for the evening too, we were not disappointed! I had the Sirloin steak which was cooked to perfection, I've eaten in lots of 5* restaurants and this place easily matches their quality. This place is a must if you're staying in the area, you will not be disappointed. Well done Team Aqua! We cannot wait to come back next year.

  • What a fantastic addition to Llanbedrog it's what we have been waiting for. You cannot fault anything about this place. The service, the atmosphere, the food. Owners and management are fantastic and very welcoming and cannot do enough for you. If you go to Wales please do not miss the place. It's very trendy and has made Llanbedrog up and coming.

  • We were about to continue our walk around the coast of Wales and discovered Aqua, with its fabulous views of the coastline. We enjoyed pan-seared scallops with salad, and liked the warm friendly atmosphere so much we returned later in the week for more yummy food - this time the beef stew! A very imaginative menu and a fun place to visit. Highly recommended.


  • We were staying in Nefyn and a local lady recommended a trip across to Llanbedrog to Aqua to us. So we drove across on a sunny day and had a lovely lunch overlooking the beach. We enjoyed it so much that we called in again a couple of days later. Great food, lovely staff and dog-friendly - we will be back next year!
