Today we celebrate St Dwynwen's Day which is our version of Valentine’s Day a day dedicated to all things love!

St Dwynwen (Santes Dwynwen) was a fourth-century Welsh princess who wasn't very lucky when it came to love, and as a result decided to become a nun. In turn, she dedicated the rest of her life to helping others find love.

So why not celebrate St Dwynwen's Day with us and cook up this delicious and simple three course welsh menu with added affrodisaidd (aphrodisiac!) for you and your loved one.  

- The Menu -
To Start
Laverbread with Wholemeal Toast
Followed by
Welsh Lamb Cutlets with Herb and Garlic Sauce
To Finish
White Chocolate and Penderyn Pannacotta with Strawberry Compote
