Funeral Teas

Here at The Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel we aim to assist bereaved families with the support of a member of staff who will provide the help required, with sensitivity, care and attention to detail.


At such a difficult time we feel it is important to support family members in the planning and preparation of a reception/tea following the funeral of a loved one, and with this in mind we trust that the following information will prove useful.

Deciding on where to retire to, following a funeral is always a difficult decision to make. We aim to meet individual requirements with a selection of venue rooms to choose from   the Library and Clarkes Dining Room for smaller gatherings and the Ballroom catering for larger gatherings with ample space for visitors to move around freely among family and friends.

We will provide floral table arrangements in the venue room you choose, for which no extra charge is made. The reception areas leading into the ballroom provide adequate space and facilities for friends and acquaintances to gather while they wait for family members following a funeral service. 

The hotel car park accommodates 100 vehicles from where easy access to the main building is available via the front steps and a ramp.

An example Funeral tea menu can be found below however should you wish to discuss alternatives please contact us.

‘Can I start by thanking everyone at the Glen yr afon for a professional job that was well done last Tuesday afternoon. Peter and Jan, Tim, yourself and the rest of the staff, from our initial enquiry the wonderful way you made a difficult time very bearable for Jane and myself and the rest of the family. The turnout for the funeral was again very humbling with the many mourners that attended St Marys Church and who came back to the funeral buffet with yourselves afterwards. Everyone said what wonderful food you served them …You made us feel part of your family in the way you handled everything’. (Dave & Jane Whistance, March 2017)

'Thank you so much to you and the staff at the Glen-yr-Afon for the most wonderful tea yesterday. It was a fantastic end to our day, in beautiful surroundings and one that my Mother would have loved.' (Sara Brown - 21st April 2016)
