Following my mini recruitment drive I can now inform that I was very successful and am looking forward to working with my new staff members, and welcoming back the existing ones. Thank you to all others that applied.
We will be re-opening the cafe on the 1st of April.
In the meantime the Gardens are still open every day of the week, entrance fees to be put in the honesty box on the other side of the blue entrance gate. The snowdrops are now out!
We have also appointed a new Head Gardener, Paul o’ Byrne, whom you may see around the gardens. He is working hard to get the garden ready for the Spring season. The ‘little fireman’ pond is currently undergoing a clean out of overgrowth and the fountain should be back in working order. He is more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
Back in October a biomass heating system was put in to heat the Plas house, the cafe, the Orangery, the greenhouse, and some of the surrounding houses. This was done with minimum damage to the gardens, thank you to Keith W. Jones and ESP.
It’s time for another feast at Plas Brondanw Caffi and this time we will be visiting the Far East! I will be cooking authentic dishes from various countries across South East Asia, which is known for its vibrant and fresh flavours. Perfect to counteract these dark, cold winter nights and a far cry from the more traditional Christmas fayre!
You will be welcomed with a Singapore Sling cocktail and an Asian inspired amuse bouche.
Places usually fill up quickly so book early. I will need all bookings in by 26th November please.
Looking forward to it! Lowri.
Brondanw Estate is installing a new biomass system that will heat the Plas and some of the nearby buildings.
Following a consultation process it was decided that the best way to run the necessary pipework was through some sections of the garden. The landscape will be re-constructed following the works.
This project is being managed by The Clough Williams Ellis Foundation, ESP Energy and Keith W. Jones.
If you require more information you can contact us on 01743241181.
Please note that toilet facilities are not available during this time but the gardens remain open as usual. Only a small section is affected by the work.
Plas Brondanw cafe will be closing for Winter on the 3oth of September. Until then we will be serving tea, coffee and cakes from 10am until 3pm.
I would like to thank everyone who have visited us since re-opening in March, it has been a great season and I have met lots of lovely people.
I will be holding a number of foodie evenings in the cafe over the Winter months, details of which will be posted here, on Facebook and Twitter.
The Gardens remain open all year round as usual. There is an honesty box on the other side of the big blue gates for admissions/ donations.
Again, thank you for all your support. We will be re-opening Easter 2017 and I look forward to welcoming you back next season.
