Where to eat at Bluestone Wales

| 23 Comments

We were lucky enough to enjoy another stay at Bluestone Wales at the end of July, and were so happy to have lots of lovely sunshine too.

We want to share with you some of the fab places where we enjoyed lunch and snacks.

On the way to Camp Smokey

Camp Smokey

You must talk a walk down to Camp Smokey. You can take one of the Nature Trails from near the lake walking through the woods and alongside the stream to reach Camp Smokey or you can walk down the boardwalk to reach it. The Nature Trail (Green Route) is a bit bumpy for a pushchair, but we were ok as mine has lovely air tyres. The boardwalk is completely pushchair friendly.

Yummy Smores

The treats that await you at Camp Smokey are Smores – delicious biscuits with melted marshmallow and chocolate in between, topped with cream. Super YUM! They are only £2.50 for 3. You can also buy marshmallows to toast yourself on the open fire outside at £1.75 for 10.

There are also meals offered here from £6.50 – £10 including burgers, hot dogs, lamb steak, chilli, fajitas and other deserts.

We have had lunch several times at The Wild Wood Cafe, it is in the Adventure Centre upstairs. The meals are good quality and good value. Children’s meals are £4.95 and quite generous. We have also had baguettes, soup, burgers and jacket potatoes and all were lovely. Prices are from £3.50 for soup to £7.95

Wild Wood Cafe food

The cafe is fab, we sat upstairs – we had to climb wooden stairs and it felt like a den. There are different nooks and levels to sit and eat – or have a drink – it is a bit like a big treehouse.

We love Millers Bakery for the yummiest cakes including muffins and welsh cakes and we also enjoyed ice cream and delicious milkshakes as well as Mummy loving the nicest coffee! Indoor seating is a bit limited, but there is plenty outdoors.

Millers Bakery

We had a treat of lunch at The Knights Tafarn one day, a medieval style pub with plenty of seating indoors and out. Nana and Luke had sausage and mash. The children’s one doesn’t come with vegetables. Mummy and Lea had a jacket potato each at £6.50 and they said the were yummy. Grandad had home baked ham and eggs with bubble and squeak.

The Knights Tafarn

The Knights Tafarn Food

We tended to have our evening meal in the lodge, with a mix of some food we brought with us, and some bought from the small mini market shop in the Bluestone Village.

There are several other places you can eat including the Oak Tree Restaurant, The Farmhouse Grill, Caffi Mor and The Chippy – a new chip shop serving traditional chippy food – including gluten free chips! This hadn’t opened when we stayed, we were looking forward to fish chunks and chips at The Blue Lagoon Fish Shack, but despite us arriving when they should have been serving hot food, they weren’t and we had to make do with a very plain small hotdog for £3 each! No chips, nothing else :(

Full menus and current prices are shown clearly on the Bluestone Wales website.

  14. Wow, this all looks amazing, I couldn’t pick which one I wanted to go to the most! They all have fab interiors and great-looking food and I’m surprised at how reasonable the prices are! XX

  15. We really enjoyed our time at Bluestone but the food was one thing we felt let it down, we didnt enjoy the knights tafern, blue lagoon or the other restaurant at all – we did like the Wildwood cafe but didnt fancy an evening meal there.
    Camp Smokey wasnt open when we there which was a shame. I love the addition of a chippy, particularly with gluten free chips…perfect for me! x

  22. Forget about the food. This place looks awesome. Children must love it (and adults too.) I have never been to Wales, but this would be one of the places that want to make me wanna go asap.

  23. Great post! We’re going back to Bluestone at the end of this month with my parents so will definitely have to try a few places to eat. Last time we mainly had takeaways woops! It’s good to see they’ve also put a walkway down to camp smokey as last time it was such a steep hill and killed me pushing the pushchair up it! xx
