People come from all over to sample our famous homemade lemon drizzle cake at Aberdulais. It's hailed by TV personalities, politicians, sportspeople and Hollywood film stars alike as the crème de la crème (even though there's not actually any 'crème' in it).

This is our special version of this classic Welsh tea bread. We recommend you make a pot of Assam to go with it. Try tea and cake in perfect harmony.
