GT's Bar and Grill is a great choice for some post walk refreshments. There's a splendid large garden to sit out in on warmer days and it's located just a stones throw away from the park. It's easily accessible from the A55 and can be found on Wepre Lane at postcode CH5 4JR.
On the nearby Hawarden Estate there's a farm shop with a nice cafe which you could head to after your walk. It serves warming breakfasts, delicious light lunches, and tea with scones and cake. There's also an outdoor seating area for the summer months. You can find it just over a mile to the south east of the park on Chester Road at postcode CH5 3FB for your sat navs.
In Hawarden village you could try the Glynn Arms. Much of the meat served in the pub is sourced from the sister business at the Hawarden Estate Farm Shop. The pub was constructed around 1812, and named in honour of the Glynne Family, whose ancestral seat was Hawarden Castle. You can sit outside and enjoy your meal in a nice garden area.
