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. It is recommended that you reserve your table in advance via our online booking system or via our reservation line on: 07535 391872.
