Anglesey is the perfect destination for anyone who fancies great views, friendly locals, and quite possibly the tastiest tea rooms and bakeries in Wales.
With that in mind, we’ve put together some of our favourite hidden gems for hungry travellers. And we can’t wait to see what you think too.
Giddy Aunt’s Tea Room
Who doesn’t love a nice cuppa and good old-fashioned cream scone? Tucked away near to the coast in Brynsiencyn, this quaint little tearoom in a picturesque stone cottage provides the weariest of explorers with delicious fuel. Serving the most beautiful homemade scones topped with truly scrumptious clotted cream and a generous helping of jam, you can’t complain! From the decked patio, the views of Snowdonia sweeten the experience even further. It’s so worth the trip to see Dawn and Brian (the lovely owners), you really won’t regret searching out Giddy Aunts Tea Room on an afternoon jaunt.

The Lobster Pot
Located right by the seaside at Church Bay, The Lobster Pot has been serving the finest and freshest local lobster, crab, mussels, oysters and scallops since 1946. It’s a family friendly place with an incredible reputation for the best seafood imaginable. It’s also a family run business, the grandson of the first owners (who turned their cottage into the café to serve lobster) still supplies the mussels, straight from his boat ‘The Mare Gratia’. The food is beautiful and it’s simply a wonderful place for seafood lovers.

Fresh fish and chips sitting on the pier following a day by the seaside – what’s not to love? Cafe Neptune serves delicious, and we mean DELICIOUS fish and chips. It’s all about the batter apparently, a secret recipe which makes for crispy, non-greasy chips and fish that is fried to perfection. You can sit inside or outside on the pier and take in the view whilst enjoying a good fry up, you could go mad and treat yourself to some fresh mushy peas (not from a tin) too. This is a great, local chippy that does exactly what it needs to with quality and superb service. Highly recommended.

Janet Bell Gallery
Janet and her husband Sean moved to Anglesey in 2007 and Janet opened a small studio where she painted and sold her prints and cards. It was an enormous success and Janet moved to the old Lloyd’s Bank on Castle Street in Beaumaris where she and her team exhibit and sell work by new and existing artists. The gallery has won three Anglesey Tourism Awards and is the perfect place for art lovers to visit. You can browse the beautiful work created by Janet and those that she champions.

Beehive Preserves (aka the Anglesey Jam Factory) at Nanner Farm has been making the finest preserves in Anglesey, if not Wales, for over 15 years. The farm is tucked away in the countryside where original family recipes have been passed down from generation to generation. The Morello Cherry with Kirsch Preserve is famous in Anglesey and customers have been returning time and time again to restock. You can visit and taste the delicious chutneys and jams with homemade scones, bara brith and sponge cake in the tea shop and purchase the products in the farmhouse shop. A lovely day out for all the family, we advise you to go with an appetite!
