Afternoon tea has been enjoyed since the early nineteenth century, and it’s not hard to see why it’s become a tradition! We invite you to join us for afternoon tea at The Miner’s Rest Cafe, on-site at The Silver Mountain Experience, either in our beautiful picnic area surrounded by stunning Welsh countryside, or in our cozy café, a real treat whatever the weather.
Indulge in a selection of freshly prepared finger sandwiches, delicious scones with clotted cream and jam, and finished off with a selection of pastries and cakes. You can enjoy your afternoon tea with a pot of tea of your choice, or a freshly ground coffee.
You don’t need to have attraction tickets to enjoy afternoon tea with us, as The Miner’s Rest Cafe is open to all.
Bookings will need to be made online or by phone at least 24 hours prior to your visit. A £5.00 per person deposit is payable to secure your booking.

LET'S GET SOCIAL
The Silver Mountain Experience is a fantastic family day out in mid-wales, filled with history, myth, legend and more. We are very proud of our Welsh Mining Heritage, and our site based in Ponterwyd, Aberystwyth, lies the beautifully preserved Llywernog silver-lead ore mine. Spend an afternoon exploring this historic site, experience one of our guided tours and more. Children can enjoy our Dragon's Tale adventure, whilst those who are feeling brave can venture into the mines and take the dreaded Black Chasm tour. As well as all of this, we have a variety of other interactive attractions such as Time Lab and our creative den, so why not join us for an afternoon of fun, deep in the Welsh mountains!
