Here at the Glen-Yr-Afon we pride ourselves on being able to offer a bespoke service by offering you our full attention from the time you make your initial enquiry through to the day itself. For your wedding anniversary celebration, we pride ourselves in our attention to detail ensuring that 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 a cake stand and knife, if required.
We have a selection of venue rooms to choose from - the Library and Clarkes Dining Room for smaller parties and the Ballroom accommodating larger parties with the provision of a private bar facility. We can also assist in arranging entertainment for those larger parties celebrating in our Ballroom.
Should you wish to further enhance the look of the room we can consider your requirements fully 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.
We offer a Funtion Menu, Function buffet menu or a la carte menu options. Should you wish to discuss alternatives please let us know.
Our Head Chef is happy to consider each party's individual requirements and create a 'special' menu when requested.
Cheers! Offering you a drink on arrival
Should you wish to offer your guests an arrival drink there are many options to choose from including fruit punch, Pimms, sparkling wine, Champagne, Bucks Fizz or still wines.
An extensive wine list is also available to choose from should you wish to offer guests a drink during the celebration itself and for a toast to the happy couple, we have a large selection of sparkling wines and champagne to add that special touch.
After your celebration why not stay the night?

'What a wonderful time we had last Sunday at our Golden Wedding lunch! Many of our guests have commented how much they enjoyed the occasion, made special by The Glen-Yr-Afon and of course the staff, who made it all possible. We were looked after by the team with excellence and professionalism. However, we must not forget the kitchen; out of sight bu tnot out of mind, so our thanks to Chef and her brigade.'
