A cosy cafe with nice views of the nearby castle. Had some Welsh rarebit which was very tasty. Good place to warm up, have a cup or tea and some proper Welsh food. Free wifi and veggie options.

Well-maintained cosy place with a stunning view. The staff were efficient and friendly - luckily the offhand person I encountered on my 2014 was not in evidence. Plenty of tea provided, but unfortunately the scones were disappointingly dry.

Situated a stone's throw from The Castle, this charming tea room has many delights to offer, not least of which are the lovely hosts. Good food served in a friendly inviting setting, what more could you ask for? Highly recommended.
