“ The comforts of life’s essentials- food, fire and friendship” ( Julia Child) Visiting the Cottage Tearooms and Bistro is a delectable way to step back in time for a while, and you’ll be following in the very distinguished footsteps of Queen Victoria, who was photographed outside this delightful tearoom in 1888. A blazing fire and casement windows invite you to come in and take a break, with a large and extensive menu offering everything from a luscious scone and hot cup of tea, to a huge scrumptious lunch or dinner. Everything is lovingly made on the premises with expert hands. Homemade Fayre (the scone recipe a well kept secret) including sandwiches, Cottage Special breakfasts which satisfy the biggest appetite as well as the tasty vegetarian option, light fluffy omelettes to beautifully cooked lamb shank and beef madras, all served in this unique Victorian jewel.
Unlike Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Express: you don’t have to be a witch, or a wizard to travel aboard the Llangollen Railway; as everyone is welcome at this immaculate station, perfectly sequestered in the historic town of Llangollen.
