Glasshouse Cafe

Situated in the Welsh Wildlife Centre on the top floor, the Glasshouse Café has a ‘treetop’ panoramic view of the Teifi River, Cardigan town and woodland.

The Glasshouse Café will open from 10.00am and close at 4pm (7 Feb to 27 March and 2 Nov to 20 Dec) and 10am to 5pm (28 March to 1 Nov). Hot lunches will be served between 12 noon and 2.30pm. The car park, bird hides and reserve remain open all the time. Please note that the café, along with the rest of the visitor centre, will be closed Fri, Sat and Sun 20-22 March 2015 as we are hosting a wedding reception. Consequently no facilities will be available in the visitor centre. Toilet facilities will be available in the lower building just past the visitor centre.

Gareth, our head cook, and his team offer a fine selection of home made dishes to suit all dietary requirements. Check out our delicious sample menu.

There is plenty of seating out on the meadow at the back of the visitor centre where, of course, you can also sit with your dog and enjoy the view over the river Teifi and Cardigan town.

All of the dishes on the menu are handmade and every day there will be a different flavoursome soup and a range of filled paninis on offer, as well as the specials board.

We produce a range of home made cakes to enjoy with freshly brewed coffee or tea. A healthy children’s menu is available or choose from the main menu for a half portion at half the price. Check the blackboards for the daily menus.

We also have a licence to sell alcohol and can provide high-quality wines and beers with your meal.
