What better way to spend Fathers Day than going out to eat some good food? This year, Fathers Day falls on Sunday 20th June, so you could choose anything from a lovely breakfast to a pub Sunday lunch. To help you decide, we’ve put together a list of great restaurants to visit in the area. Make sure to book ahead so you don’t miss out!
Pen-y-Bryn, Colwyn Heights
The Pen-y-Bryn is situated at the top of Colwyn Bay, Colwyn Heights – hence the name translating to ‘Head of the Hill’. This warm and friendly pub has a great atmosphere, with dark wood interiors, and an excellent outdoor seating area.
The menu is often a mix of the best of British dishes, but also complemented by some from more exotic cuisines. The menu is switched up regularly, but the up-to-date version should be available on their website.
The Sunday roasts at the Pen-y-Bryn typically offer around 3 or 4 options from chicken, beef, pork, or a mixed roast – a combination with all the trimmings!
Ffin y Parc, Llanrwst
If you’re after something a little different and would like to spend the day somewhere interesting, Ffin y Parc is a great choice. This grand building is home to exhibitions by some of the finest artists within Wales. The gallery is set over two levels, and it has a coffee/wine bar serving food, overlooking the forest.
Ffin y Parc is popular with visitors and locals alike – the restaurant has an air of contemporary luxury. They have a selection of homemade cakes, and a delicious menu of light lunches served between 12 and 2:30 pm.
Hickory’s Smokehouse, Rhos on Sea
Hickory’s Smokehouse is full of flavors from Southern America. The menu is available from 11 am onwards, with the brunch menu available until 2 pm. If you make this, you can gorge on pancake stacks and waffles, or full breakfasts.
The main menu has a whole host of smokehouse classics such as ribs and Texas-style beef brisket to the ‘ultimate Smokehouse Platter.’ They have steaks, fajitas, Southern fried chicken, and a wide selection of burgers – there is something for everyone. Dad will love it!
The Cottage Loaf, Llandudno
The Cottage Loaf is a traditional pub, hidden in the center of the Victorian town, Llandudno. You’ll find it down an inconspicuous backstreet just off the High Street.
The menu here boasts delicious plates from far and near. It features pub classics, and whatever the chefs fancy creating – check their website for up-to-date items. They pride themselves on serving locally sourced ingredients where possible, with some of the meat coming from the butchers just next door to the pub.
The Sunday menu is served alongside their normal menu.
