We also offer canapes, buffets and occasional evening functions. We aim to offer more than your average cafe with regard to Gluten Free and Dairy Free diets.

“Great little cafe”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Went for lunch with the family, the staff were very helpful, quickly clearing the only (recently) unoccupied table. Great kids menu, and very tempting adult mains - although there weren't that many of them. Also a couple of PCs available for public use, plus free wifi. Would definitely go back.

Thank you so much for your review. We do have a smaller selection of mains than some establishments, however there is always a good range of meals to suit all diets, including those with allergies. We also have daily specials, currently for example, our own Solva Crab Pate served with Rye bread and a pickled cucumber salad or beetroot stained Welsh Smoked Salmon with a wasabi pea salad. Wifi is indeed available and we are open all year round. We hope to see you again and appreciate your review.

Thank you for you review. We do try to have a variety of dishes available including meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan as well as gluten free and dairy free options always. A more extensive menu suggests a lack of freshness and we pride ourselves on fresh and local produce where possible. We are glad you enjoyed the happy atmosphere and hope to see you again soon. Thanks again for taking the time to review us.

“Oriel is quite nice”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We enjoyed a few coffee and cakes at the Oriel as it has reasonable internet access and the staff are very friendly even when very busy. There is always a nice selection of goods and pretty exhibitions with lots of information about where to visit. Parking is payable but there are a few free spots if you have a drive about and are prepared to walk a little.

Thank you so much for your review. We are very grateful for the comments on staff's manner as we try our best to be efficient as well as friendly. The car park is payable I season, however there is a free parking bay to the rear of the holding, however this is limited time wise. The main car park is convenient and spacious with disabled areas as well as designated areas for coaches, accommodating all, within close proximity to the cafe, information centre and gift shop. We hope to see you again.
