A selection of cakes at the Bothy Tea-Room at Colby, Wales

A bite to eat at the Bothy Tea-room is a must if you’re visiting Colby. Tuck into freshly-made foodie favourites, enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake.

Flavoursome food

With its scrummy selection of cakes and lovely lunches, it’s not hard to see why the Bothy Tea-room is a favourite with locals and visitors alike. It even came out top in a recent National Trust scoring for quality of food in Wales.

Run by mother and daughter team, Penny and Sam, for the last 10 years, the menu's full of delicious dishes and imaginative flavours. There's a daily specials board to tempt you too.

What's on the menu?

The menu features a range of salads, covering everything from homemade coronation chicken to mackerel to cheese and chutney. Other light bites include warm ciabattas and sandwiches, with a tasty selection of fillings on offer.

Penny's cakes are made daily, with the likes of ginger and pecan, courgette and lime, and dark chocolate and orange served. For extra sweet treats, try a scone with some clotted cream or enjoy local dairy ice cream.

History at the tea-room

It’s also great for history. The tea-room is actually located in a group of whitewashed barns where, once upon a time, the Colby estate workers lived, cooked and slept.
