As St David’s Day approaches, our restaurant prepares to honour this cherished celebration with flavours that capture the essence of tradition and innovation.

Rooted in History

The name “Daffodil” pays homage to the profound cultural significance of this symbolic flower in Wales. With its roots entwined in folklore and history, the daffodil symbolises resilience and vitality – a sentiment deeply ingrained in the Welsh spirit.

A Symbol of Resilience

Legend has it that Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, once advised his followers to wear leeks in battle. Over time, the leek became the national emblem. However, the daffodil, with its vibrant hues and unwavering bloom, emerged as a complementary symbol, which arguably has more significance than the leek in modern perception.
