The various woodland walks are wonderful especially the quiz walk for children to find and identify creatures, plants and insects. Lovely variety of meals available in the cafe served by friendly staff. We will definitely visit again.

Great little cafe with seating both inside and out offering great views. The food is always spot on, staff are friendly and helpful, cafe is clean and tidy and it’s dog friendly too.

Great tasting food and very clean but staff seem to be a little stressed at the weekend. they maybe need more more staff. It is a tadge expensive but then it does taste nice. Cakes look nice.

At the beginning of several mountain bike tracks , this cafe is a very welcome sight on your return. Well stocked with all kinds of food and drinks served by friendly , courteous staff, and spotlessly clean . Location is something else -- well worth...a visit .More

This place is always clean and tidy with lovely looking food on display. We sometimes visit before we start riding but definitely always visit after when we need that cuppa and slice of cake! It does get busy at peak times but we have always...managed to get a table. Had the flapjack this weekend whilst I was there and this was amazing!!More

Get ready for some extra guests with your pot of tea and cake. They're cheeky with it too - but then again - you're in 'their' forest. The little robins, tits, dunnocks (they could be wrens) land on your table - size you up, then...size up your cake/sausage butty then put on cute faces. Don't be fooled tho - there's a little dish with seeds in for them either on the table or dotted round the decking. The decking itself overlooks Cader Idris and Coed y Brenin. have a read of how the visitor centre was built (right hand-side as you come in) - good gift shop, kind and knowledgable staff. Highly recommend.More

Food and 1:1 service is fine but the overall organisation is poor. They could serve more customers if only there was some half decent management in charge.

Who isn't in need of a cuppa and cake after a long ride?! It's a bit cosy-cafe style and the service wasn't the quickest - but then it was a busy afternoon in the half term holiday. Mugs of tea and coffee were very welcome...and the scones were good - satisfyingly huge! Reasonably priced too.More

Popped in the cafe for some breakfast before we headed off to do the Beast trail, Opted for Bacon and Sausage sandwich, this was cooked well although Bacon had been in a deep fryer and not grilled/pan fried so slightly hard and fatty!! My friend...is Vegan and there were not many options for her to have so we struggled a bit to find her something which she could have to eat. Service was very slow, although very polite when we did get served, and the cafe was very quite due to the poor weather, I wouldn't like to see it when it is busy......seem's like this in all Forestry Cafe's, Cannock, Coed Y Brenin, Whinlatter they are all the same!!! Price of food was good, not expensive like I thought it was so that was a plus side! If there was some thought put into running this establishment it could be fantastic!! As someone has mentioned on another review you will not beat the food and service which you receive at Llandegla - Top quality!!!!More

After visiting the Coed-y-Brenin woodland trails took the weight off and stopped for a pitstop at the Cafe at Coed-y-Brenin. Great hot chocolate and slice of Gluten Free Victoria Sponge - about the price you'd expect for such a place. Friendly helpfull waitresses. Nice wooden...benches outside with views down into the wooded valleys in the morning mists.More

No, sorry, we live 200 miles away! The food is good basic food that you would expect hungry walkers/bikers to eat. Lots of it. If you are expecting a 3 star experience its not for you, but for good value for money and well... More
