At The Proper Gander, Tywyn, we are passionate about our Welsh heritage and produce. Wherever possible we source our ingredients and beverages locally from independent small businesses in the area. By sourcing our ingredients this way we are able to ensure freshness, quality and most importantly, great tasting dishes! We are proud to support and work with other businesses in our community and are always on the look out for new and exciting delicacies to bring to our customers.
Our meats are sourced from Cigydd Aberdyfi Butchers; a traditional family run shop, priding themselves on selling the finest local Welsh product. All of our lamb, beef and chicken are bought fresh from the butchers.
Our cured meats are sourced from Gwella Farm in nearby Aberystwyth. This small family-run enterprise have created a pioneering product using meat from their home-reared lamb. Served with chutney and crusty bread this Welsh delicacy gives a real taste of Wales!
Fresh Fish, Lobster and Crab
Proper Gander owner, David, frequently sails with “Dai the fish” to land his own lobster and crab. Fish and crustaceans are prepped in the kitchen that same afternoon, ready for service at 6pm!
Our Beers and Ciders
We offer a range of unique and interesting real ales sourced from a micro-brewery in Dolgellau, at the foot of Cader Idris in Southern Snowdonia.
