A Place in the Mountaineering History of Snowdonia

Snowdonia, Ogwen Falls snack bar can trace its history back to the early 1900’s when it was precariously perched on rocks at the head of the waterfall from which it takes its name.  Known throughout the world it has its place in the mountaineering history in this part of Snowdonia and has been run by the same family since 1953

The Ogwen Snack Bar moved to its current location over forty years ago to the newer premises incorporating Snowdonia National Park warden office and public toilets. This was a brown site development previously being an old hawn stone quarry – this quarry produced writing slates used in schools in the last century and exported worldwide. During 2012 and 2013 that building was demolished to make room for the current structure.

Whether it be at the start of your day or after a stenuous day in the mountains, the Ogwen Snack Bar can provide you with that all important refreshment, hot or cold, selling a range of drinks, snacks, pasties, paninis and locally baked cakes.
