The present Ty’n Llan premises were built in the 1860s as part of the Glynllifon estate. It’s an impressive Grade II listed historic building and is the heart of the picturesque village of Llandwrog. From Eben Fardd to Edward H – poets, singers and celebrities have met here over the years.
A fair life
A safe world
The pub’s doors closed in 2017 and the village was left with nowhere to meet and socialise. In February 2021 over 100 villagers showed their support to safeguard its future and buy the building. Menter Ty’n Llan, a Community Benefit Society, was established with a Management Committee of 14 experienced members, and over £400,000 was raised in shares. Now we must raise hundreds of thousands of pounds to transform Ty’n Llan into a contemporary an exciting community hub.
A good old beer
Ty’n Llan’s doors re-opened on a temporary basis in December 2021 and the fundraising efforts continue. If we reach our financial targets, we can realise our vision of a contemporary bar, kitchen and restaurant, 5 en-suite luxury bedrooms, a rear extension with views of the Eifl, a community room for meetings, societies and clubs, an attractive beer garden for the whole family with an outdoor kitchen and ample parking with a charging point for electric cars.
The strength of Menter Ty’n Llan lies in its members and volunteers. Each shareholder is a member of the Society, and there are over 1000 members so far. There are also over 30 people on the enterprise’s committees including the Management Committee and 6 sub-committees responsible for different areas of activity and expertise: Business Operations; Marketing, Branding and Communications; Renovation and Maintenance; Food and Drink; Outside area & garden; Events and Entertainment. These committees ensure the effective development and running of Ty’n Llan and carry out specific tasks on its behalf.
