Y Crochan is light, bright and modern with views all around of the densely wooded hillsides of the Corris valley.

Our menu uses delicious ingredients which have been grown, reared and locally produced. Call in for morning coffee, lunches and afternoon tea; we serve hot and cold food, delicious home made cakes and drinks throughout the day.

Y Crochan seats up to 100 with an additional outdoor seating area which overlooks our small children's play area, ideal for keeping an eye on your little ones. High chairs are available.

Y Crochan cafe is next to the King Arthur's Labyrinth underground adventure, 8 Corris Craft Centre studios, Corris Mine Explorers and Lost Legends of the Stone Circle visitor attractions. Next door to Y Crochan is a Welsh Food and Drink shop where you'll find shelves stocked with a tempting range of items; all of which have been produced right here in Wales.
