Eat, drink & shop in Mid Wales

Mid Wales has some fabulous food and drink producers, supplying our restaurants, pubs, bars, inns and café’s with lots of lovely local produce for you to enjoy. Whilst you’re here remember to ask the people you meet about local stories passed down between the generations - perhaps over a drop of gin, or award-winning ale.

If you’re in need of some fresh air after all that local produce, we’ve got the coast and countryside to explore. Many of our attractions in Mid Wales also have café’s or tearooms on-site, so you can really make a day of it.

Stay for a short break and spoil yourself in one of Mid Wales many places to stay recognised for their award-winning restaurants. Treat yourself to a visit to a local vineyard, brewery and even a gin distillery.

Explore Mid Wales market towns with their traditional market halls, small independant shops and sample local produce at one of the many farmers markets across the region.

Plenty of places to eat and drink ...
