Tyn Dwr Hall


Long gone are the days of Lockdown Banana Bread and Sourdough! With January providing the perfect opportunity to instil new habits and try something different in the kitchen, why not try a month going meat-free.

This January we are bringing you two delicious dishes to make a home, tried and tested by our friends at The Three Eagles

They’ve even provided some refreshing mocktail recipes as a sweet-treat aperitif or dessert, for those giving Dry January a go.
