TYDDYN LLAN RESTAURANT WITH ROOMS
CROESO I GYMRU – WELCOME TO WALES
Bryan, Susan and their loyal staff welcome you to our 18th season at Tyddyn Llan and Wales.
We hope that you will enjoy your stay with us.
While the Covid is still with us things will be a little different, please be patient with us as we try our best to adapt to things.
The heart of Tyddyn Llan is the restaurant and kitchen where we have an uncompromising attitude to sourcing the finest quality seasonal ingredients. Many of which arrive daily from our network of suppliers. Meat and game come from local farms and estates through our local butcher T.J. Roberts in Bala, ducks from Goosnargh, with the majority of fish direct from the south west coastline of England.
We also have an amazing vegetable supplier who sources lot of produce for us and collects, watercress, rocket, asparagus and courgette flowers during the season from the Wirral. And not forgetting our gardeners who grow seasonal vegetables for us.
Although we are supportive of as much Welsh produce as possible, we look further afield for diver caught scallops and langoustine from Scotland, buffalo Mozzarella flown in from Naples, and Essex for Label Anglais Chickens from Wyndham Farm. All our cheese is supplied by Neal’s Yard Dairy, who in my eyes are the best cheesemongers in the UK. They personally buy the cheeses and mature them before selling them to us. Our bread is baked daily in our kitchen using unbleached flour.
Vegetarians are well taken care of, but a little extra notice will guarantee that little something extra special. It is not always possible to offer a vegan tasting menu. The kitchen on request will always accommodate for serious dietary requirements and allergies, please inform us as soon as possible.
A selection of dishes from our menu can always be adapted to appeal to children’s tastes and appetites if they eat in the dining room. A small children’s menu is available. If you wish for your children to eat early, we can serve them from 6.00pm with prior notice.
THE WINE LIST
Unfortunately, at this time we cannot leave a copy of our wine list for your perusal. But you can look at the list via our web site and you may order wines in advance if you wish, so that they have time to breathe and are ready when you arrive for dinner. Please be understanding if certain vintages have changed or unavailable. If you would like a copy of the list to take home with you, we will be very happy to print you a copy.
A full Welsh farmhouse style cooked breakfast is served between 8.30am and 10.00am, earlier only if you insist and with prior arrangement. During these Covid times we do require a time that you would like to have breakfast, so there are not too many people in the dining room at once.
We also offer a light breakfast served in your room which has to be ordered the night before.
Packed lunches are available every day at £12 per person, to insure that, we can serve you, your first choice from the menu, it is best to place your order the night before.
We serve lunch on Fridays and Saturdays between 12.45 and 2.00pm when we offer a two or three course set lunch. On Sundays we serve a three-course lunch until 2.30pm to include a traditional roast Sirloin of Welsh black beef on our menu.
If you are out and about and fancy a light lunch, I can recommend Rhug Farm Bistro at Rhug, Gales Wine Bar in Llangollen, Sugar Plum in Rhewl, near Ruthin, which also serves amazing afternoon teas. If your day takes you as far as Llandudno and you enjoy fish and chips, lunch at Enochs Fish and Chip Shop and Restaurant in Llandudno Junction is a must. If you fancy lunch on the coast, celebrity Welsh Chef Bryn Williams has a bistro called Porth Eirias overlooking Colwyn Bay and serves an excellent set lunch.
Afternoon Tea of Bara Brith and shortbread are available from 3.00 to 5.30pm in our sitting room.
Our daily-changing dinner is served between 6.30 and 9.00pm (8.30pm on Sundays). Canapés and drinks can be served in the sitting room or on the terrace before while you read the menu if you wish.
We must by law inform anyone who has allergies, if any of the many fourteen allergies are in any of our dishes. Please let a member of staff know if you have any allergies or specific dietary requirements. Whilst we will do all we can to accommodate guests with food intolerances and allergies, we are unable to guarantee that dishes will be completely allergen-free.
We are a non-smoking establishment. This meets the laws against smoking in enclosed places in Wales. It also recognises the wishes of the majority of our house guests and customers in the restaurant, as well as our staff. We respectfully request that you do not smoke in the bedrooms and should remind you that our smoke detectors are very sensitive. If you wish to smoke, ash trays are provided on our terrace. If you smoked in your room, we will charge an extra £100 deep cleaning charge.
Our housekeepers pride themselves on the high standard we aim to achieve in our rooms, to make your stay more enjoyable and safer during the Covid times, we provide the following:
Tea and coffee making facilities are provided for your use, in most rooms they are placed in the wardrobes. If you would like fresh milk please ask.
Early morning tea or coffee can be served in your room from 8.00am onwards at £4.00 per person.
Bathrobes are in the wardrobe, please do not take them home with you.

Drying room: We have a drying room for all your wet weather clothing and boots after a long soggy walk, please ask a member of staff.
THINGS TO DO
Please ask for our six favourite things to do information leaflet for the area. If you fancy a walk, we have six mapped routes which range from an easy 40-minute, 1.5-mile stroll, up to a slightly strenuous 2.5-hour, three-mile hike. In the summer, a croquet set and plenty of deck chairs for when the sun shines are available. In the lounge you will find a selection of games for the wet days as we seem to have lot of in Wales.
If there is anything that you think that we did not live up to or you were disappointed with, Susan and I would much prefer if you informed us personally rather than posting a bad TRIP ADVISOR review, which can be damaging to our business. It also hurts us very personally as we all work very hard to maintain a high standard to keep our guests happy. But if a mistake does happen, please remember we are only human, and it’s even more difficult to operate during the Covid virus times.
You can use the telephone in your room to make free calls to anywhere in the United Kingdom.
IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY DURING THE NIGHT CALL EXTENSION 219
Most of our guests check out after breakfast. Because of Covid you may wish for us to email your bill to you and take payment from you pre-authorised card. If you wish to leave earlier than 9.00am please advise reception and we will prepare your bill for payment the night before. We request that the rooms are vacated by 11.00am. If a later check out time is required, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.
Thank you for staying at Tyddyn Llan and we hope you will return soon.
