Whether its your 21st birthday, your 30th birthday or your 40th birthday and you would like to celebrate with family and friends providing entertainment for their enjoyment, we are available to help. Perhaps it's a 50th, 60th or 70th birthday and you would like to provide a celebration dinner, lunch or even a champagne breakfast for family and friends, then again we are here to help.

For 90th and the amazing 100th birthday celebrations perhaps an afternoon tea would be your choice - whatever the age a celebration is always enjoyed so do not hesitate to call us and we will be pleased to assist with your arrangements.

We have a selection of venue rooms to choose from - the Library and Clarkes Dining Room for smaller parties and the Ballroom for larger parties with the provision of a private bar facility.

The venue room you choose will be decorated with appropriate colour coordinated floral table centres, for which no extra charge is made, and will also include the use of the hotel's cake stand and knife, if required, again free of charge. Colour coordinated menus and table plans are also provided, free of charge. Should you wish to further enhance the look of the room, we can consider your requirements in our planning discussions.

We can also assist with your entertainment requirements being able to recommend a variety of bands, roadshow hosts, magicians, string quartets, harpists etc - all of whom we are happy to liaise with, on your behalf.

The Function Menu options and buffet menu options can be viewed together with an example A la Carte menu however should you wish to discuss alternatives please let us know. Head Chef is happy to consider each party's individual requirements and create a 'special' menu when requested.

'‘Following our visit to Glen-Yr-Afon on Sunday for my uncle's 90th birthday celebration, I just want to say how pleased we were with the event. Many of our party commented on how efficient and friendly the staff were - we couldn't fault the service we had, and all of us were very pleased with the venue in general. The table layout worked out perfectly and we were able to relax without feeling we were encroaching on other diners. It was also nice to be able to use the lovely garden for some family photos’. (Sian Draper, August 2016)

‘Just wanted to say that Geoff's do was fantastic on Saturday night. The room, food and service was excellent. It made it really special for Geoff who thoroughly enjoyed himself.
Once again, a Big THANK YOU to you and all staff that involved’. (Sue Holland, July 2016)

‘We were absolutely delighted with our family party last Friday. Very many thanks to you and all involved for a lovely evening, especially to all the catering staff. The food was excellent and the service was very friendly and efficient. The Head Waiter has great organisational ability which we much appreciated and everyone involved achieved a combination of informality and professionalism. The unanticipated elements of an amuse bouche and the sorbet added considerably to the whole. Being accommodated in the Library was far more appropriate than you could have known as very many of the guests were librarians. (We did offer to put the books in order, but it was too late in the evening!). Please pass on our appreciation to all involved’. (Tony Bamber, May 2016)
