St Dwynwen's Tasting Menu - Friday January 25th 2019

Join us on Friday January 25th 2019 for a Tasting Menu in celebration of St Dwynwen's Day - The Welsh Valentines Day.

Legend has it that St Dwynwen was a 4th-century Welsh princess who lived in what is now the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Dwynwen was the prettiest of King Brychan Brycheiniog’s 24 daughters. She fell in love with a local lad called Maelon Dafodrill, but King Brychan had already arranged for her to marry another prince. Maelon took the news badly, so the distraught Dwynwen fled to the woods to weep, and begged God to help her. She was visited by an angel who gave her a sweet potion to help her forget Maelon, and turned him into a block of ice.

God then granted Dwynwen three wishes. Her first wish was that Maelon be thawed; second, that God help all true lovers; and third, that she should never marry. In gratitude, Dwynwen became a nun, setting up a convent on Llanddwyn Island, a beautiful little spot on Anglesey. Her name means, ‘she who leads a blessed life’.
