Courtyard cafe & gift shop


The Courtyard cafe, situated within our historic courtyard, is a beautiful location for a relaxing lunch, in homely surroundings, with indoor and outdoor seating for up to 48 people. A Welsh dragon, inspired by the medieval carving of the Blayney Room, and created in Gregynog oak peers down at you, as if looking for a hearty snack!

The shop is open from 10.00 am to 3.30 pm Thursday – Monday during the Spring months (last orders at 3.00 pm) PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE CLOSED ON A TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY DURING SPRING

Our New Spring menu with foods prepared fresh to order by one of our Chefs can be viewed here: Spring Cafe Menu

All our dishes are prepared by our Chef and the team, using locally sourced ingredients and cooked to order, including many fresh salads and vegetables from our own greenhouse. Our seasonal menus include a new choice of freshly made sandwiches, why not opt for a Roast Sirloin, Watercress and Creamed Horseradish with a choice of Farmhouse White, Granary or Gluten Free Bread, or for one of our light bites why not try our Welsh Lamb Cawl, served with Welsh Cheddar Cheese & Rustic Bread or for our vegetarian friends a Brie, Grape & Basil Panini, served with our House Salad, Honey Vinaigrette & Homemade Coleslaw.   For our guests with a sweet tooth we have a selection of cakes available.  If you are in need of replenishment after a long hearty walk take a look at our daily ‘specials board’ there’s plenty of choice to suit all. Why not add a tipple of ‘Blayney’s Brew,’ our locally-made beer from the award-winning Monty’s brewery in honour of Arthur the ‘gentleman squire’ of Gregynog.

With a traditional Welsh welcome, all food is freshly prepared with fresh flowers on the table and an array of art on the walls.

We also welcome dogs and, in fact, are so canine friendly that we have dog chews for sale in the shop.

The gift shop is open daily for a selection of traditional and charming Welsh crafts, ceramics and books, plus Gregynog honey, produced in our apiary, is seasonally available but subject to the whim of the bees!



Excellent food, fantastic surroundings, lovely staff, brilliant service.
