Wedding Breakfast Selection

Every care is taken to offer special dishes for those of your guests who are vegetarian or require a special diet. Our polite and friendly staff will have pleasure in silver-serving your choice of menu at the peak of its quality and cooked as you wish.

The Glen-Yr-Afon is fairly unique in offering wedding guests a choice of three starters, a main course and two desserts on the day - at the table.  Generally, at other wedding venues,  you would be asked to select one simple menu choice, for each course with all guests being offered the same. 

We find that wedding guests really appreciate having a selection to choose from at the table - it makes your wedding stand out from others they may have attended.

We are also happy for you to choose a choice of two main course meat options if you prefer.  This can be included at little or no additonal cost (depending on selections made) as long as you are happy to provide a pre-order for this one course only, in advance of the day.

Our wedding packages include a choice of menu (with the exception of the Emerald package which offers a simple menu structure and does not include a cheese and biscuits course).

Our Platinum wedding package also includes a sorbet course and petit-fours.
