Delicious Food and Drink


Breakfast (Served daily)

Our breakfast menu has got everything you need to kickstart your day. Delve into a hearty breakfast bap of either bacon, sausage, vegetarian sausage or egg (or ask for a combination if you’d rather – don’t be shy!) Our delicious American-style pancake stacks are proving to be very popular – choose from bacon & syrup, banana & Biscoff or traditional lemon and sugar. We also serve lighter choices including crumpets, yogurt and granola and a selection of fruit.

Lunch (Served daily)

Choose from light bites to satisfying, hearty dishes and everything in between. Our menu changes with the seasons but examples include cawl, salt and pepper squid, fishfinger sandwiches, chicken or falafal skewers and loaded dirty fries. We’ve always got a scrummy baguette and jacket potato options and you’ll love our regular and seasonal fillings. A children’s menu is also available. And dogs are catered for too with our Sir Woofchester range.

Sunday Lunch

We’ve got Sundays sorted at Llys-y-fran… our Dirty Yorkies are the best! A 7-inch Yorkshire pudding fully loaded with our roast meat of the day, stuffing, pigs-in-blankets, green beans and roast potatoes. A Quorn Roast is a delicious vegetarian alternative. After all this savoury goodness, you may want to follow up with our special hot pudding of the week. It changes regularly but if pies, crumbles or tarts topped with cream or custard are your thing, we’re pretty sure you won’t be able to resist! Why not bring the family to Llys-y-frân for Sunday lunch this week?

Afternoon Tea

Served on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 3pm, our traditional afternoon treat is a luxurious indulgence. We serve all you would expect with sandwiches, freshly baked scones with cream and jam and an assortment of delectable cakes and pastries (with vegan and gluten-free options too). Join us in the light and airy café or bask in the sunshine on our terrace overlooking the lake. Enjoy your classic afternoon tea for two at just £27.90 and for some extra sparkle, why not upgrade with a glass of fizz for £5.00 person. Pre-booking required.
