Fresh Ingredients, Tasty Meals

Welcome To Forage Kitchen

Visit the Forage Kitchen to enjoy fresh, seasonal dishes, cooked by head Chef, Matt Eales (pictured), and his team in our beautiful new restaurant. Menus are refreshed regularly, and many of the ingredients are sourced on our doorstep from Penllyn Estate Farm, as well as from other local suppliers. Matt works closely with our head butcher, Steve Evans, to design delicious plates based on seasonal availability whilst also maintaining some of our most popular signature dishes. Mouth-watering specials are prepared each day, based on the local produce available. The restaurant provides a spectacular view over the Thaw Valley, with its contemporary design providing a feeling of warmth and space in which to enjoy your food and drink.

The kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch, and teatime treats for both adults and children. Tables are available on a first come, first served basis and no prior booking is required. The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere and our staff are on hand to help with anything you might need. Please do ask if you have any special dietary requirements or requests; our chefs will always try to accommodate these where possible.

For those of you wanting a hot drink only, or perhaps some good food without “sitting in”, we have plenty of outdoor tables and a marquee providing shelter and a more informal dining space.

Our coffee bar is open until 5pm everyday with a good selection of drinks, delicious cakes and other treats. We also have our signature Forage picnics but please order these in advance with 24 hours notice.
