Major Refurbishment for Lakeside Café at Cosmeston Country Park

In 2015 Vale of Glamorgan County Council awarded Caterleisure Group the catering contract at Cosmeston Country Park.

Following the initial 5 months of trading, Caterleisure have listened to their customers and created an attractive new coffee shop within the Visitors Centre, with easy access from the carpark. With major investment, the Lakeside Coffee Shop has seen a serious makeover with full floor and wall decoration and attractive new furniture and counter.

The Council have also taken the opportunity to upgrade back of house equipment. “Feedback so far has been overwhelming” says Louise Hodgson, Development Director “the café is fresh and welcoming with attractive displays of food. We have developed the menu to include more local produce, offering traditional lunches such as Welsh Cumberland sausage ring and hand battered cod, quality bakery, afternoon tea and hot & cold snacks. This summer we shall also be serving Mario’s multi-award winning Luxury Welsh Ice-Cream”.

Caroline Stanton and her team have worked extremely hard to ensure disruption has been kept to a minimum and look forward to welcoming back their customers, new and old!

In addition to the day to day business, the café can also cater for children’s parties and offer hospitality to local groups wishing to meet. For more information please call in or contact the catering manager on either 02920 700942 or
