The Dragon Hotel, situated in the heart of Swansea city, is proud to be Welsh. This year, to celebrate St David’s Day, we’re showing our patriotism by inviting you to celebrate our great nation in style.
Join the hotel for a 3 course St David’s Day Lunch a full day early on Friday 28th February, with a creative selection of well thought-out Welsh menu dishes.
It’s not only Welsh fare and Tomos Watkin’s ‘Dewi Sant Ale’ that’s on offer on Friday. The Wales Tartan Centres, also situated at the heart of Swansea city, has joined forces with Swansea’s premier hotel to offer a unique twist to the celebrations. Staff members will be happy to proudly wear the Centre’s traditional Welsh tartan whilst looking after diners during the celebrations.
Tony Collins at Wales Tartan Centre, said: “St David’s Day is a great way of expressing how patriotic we are and we’re really pleased to be asked to dress up some of the men at The Dragon Hotel for the day. The St David’s Tartan Kilts always get a great reception and I am sure the customers at the hotel will love the effect and get involved with the fun on the day”.
Tony joked: “We hope it becomes part of the staff uniform eventually, so even more customers get to see the boys knees!”
Along with the Welsh dress, a Welsh themed mouth–watering lunch menu has been created to whet the appetites of diners and add to the overall experience for those celebrating on St David’s Day.
“The menu has been designed to capture the true spirit of Welsh cuisine”, says Head Chef Steve Williams “and includes items like Bacon, Leek & Lava Bread Risotto, and Grilled Loin of Pork with Leek Mashed Potato.
The meal will also include a complimentary taste of Tomos Watkin’s ‘Dewi Sant Ale’, just the tonic to kick start St David’s Day celebrations!
Dawn George Sales Manager at the Tomos Watkin Brewery said: “We strive to work in partnership with businesses such as The Dragon Hotel to promote Wales & the finest things that this small but proud nation has to offer.
“Our determination to become an iconic Welsh Brand drives our core statement to support, encourage and help develop the Welsh economy and increase the profile of ‘Brand Wales’ around the world. Saint Davids’ day is of special importance to us, so we are proud to brew a unique ale to celebrate our patron saint- Dewi Sant ale – Iechyd Da!”
“Working alongside suppliers as passionate about Wales as us is always a pleasure and clearly St David’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do so” said Cath Garcia, General Manager at The Dragon Hotel. “I would like to see the day celebrated as enthusiastically as St Patrick’s Day and as long as we keep in mind St David’s message of ‘remembering the small things’ the day is certain to be a success – one I would hope to see emulated throughout the city and indeed Wales, in years to come.”
St David’s Day Lunch will be held a day early at The Dragon Hotel, between 12:00pm – 2:30pm on Friday 28th February 2014 and the 3 course meal is priced at only £19.95 per person – reservations are still available but prompt action is required to avoid disappointment!
