Food & Drink

food-and-drinkAt Gwaenynog we offer a range of breakfast options, using the best of local produce. Food is such an integral and important part of everyone’s life, so we have taken the time to test out all the local produce to find the best there is – all done willingly, of course!

For our traditional, cooked-to-order breakfasts we use:

  • Free range eggs from nearby farms
  • Locally cured bacon
  • Hand-made butcher sausages
  • All meat is from local butchers, using meat produced in the region of North Wales or at the farthest, Shropshire & Cheshire
  • Our tea and coffee is Fair Trade, and our flour is organic or Fair Trade

Breakfast is served in the guest dining room, which is our combined lounge/diner, exclusively for guests to use.

We offer a varied menu, but ask only that you give us your preferences the night before. This not only saves on waste, it means it’s all cooked fresh-to-order and served individually at your preferred time. Should you change your mind, we will try our best to accommodate.

In addition to the traditional breakfast we also offer a range of lighter dishes, such as scrambled eggs and smoked salmon or smoked haddock with a poached egg, or there’s proper porridge. We also have a selection of cereals, fruit compote, natural yoghurt and often home-made bread as part of the breakfast choices.

You can take time to relax and enjoy breakfast with a pot of freshly brewed tea of your choice or a Cafetière of fresh ground coffee, toast, preserves and juices. This is an ideal time to plan your day ahead.


If you have special dietary requirements, just let us know in advance and we’ll do our very best to accommodate your needs. Breakfast is served from 8-9.30am, but again, if you require an earlier breakfast we’ll aim to accommodate this.

With new legislation requiring that we notify of any of the 14 allergens, if you’re at all concerned, please take a look at our evening meals or breakfast menus where each one is highlighted. If you’re in any doubt, please just call us.

We offer as much Fairtrade as we can. All our teas and coffees carry the Fairtrade mark. 


We also offer evening meals – we are not a restaurant, but what we have is good quality home-cooked food, with lots of flavours – and plenty of it. (See the menu.) We’re also licensed, so can offer a selection of wines, beers and spirits. (See List.) Usually, we serve dinner at 7 pm, but we can accommodate slightly later arrival times. Please just speak with us.
