cheap food

by lauzon

I am going to cardiff next week and I know that prices for food are pretty high. Does anyone have a heads up on cheap places to eat near the city centre? Thanks

Re: cheap food

I've always pointed people towards the JD Wetherspoon chain of pubs that offer cheap food and drink although they do lack atmosphere at times. There are 7 shown in the Cardiff area and at least a couple of these will be in a city centre.

The market has good cheap food or try one of the pastie shops.

Try 'chip shop alley' aka Caroline street at the bottom end of St Marys street by the cafe quarter on Mill Lane.
Greggs bakeries do a great range of hot and cold snacks and there are many good Chinese and Indian restaurants that do an 'eat all you can' lunch for a few £s.
Of the JD Wetherspoons bars, 3 are in the heart of Cardiff with the others within a mile of the centre.

Also if you walk about 10 minutes from the city centre to an area called Cathays you can find lots of cheap and nice pubs there. It's the student area so prices are low and the quality is still very good. Try places like the Pen and Wig, Gassy Jacks, The Social, and my favourite, The Woodville.

Travel Tips for Cardiff

Cardiff by night


Some buildings in Cardiff are beautifully illuminated at night. First of all, the Millenium Stadium and its reflections in the river Taff look fascinating at night. Apart from that, the administrative buildings around Cathays Park are well worth a night visit.
Last but not least the Castle walls often seem to be equipped with light decorations. Funnily enough, when I was in Cardiff at the end of May, the Castle Walls were still equipped with winter light decorations showing snow flakes... :o)

"It's Brains you want!"

by aaaarrgh

"It's Brains you want" was once the slogan for Brains beers. S.A. Brain & Co. have brewed beer in Cardiff for 120 years and, if you like beer at all, you must try some Brains while you are here. Many of the pubs in Cardiff have Brains beers available.

Traditionally beer is pumped by handle direct from the cask. In my view this is the best beer to drink. Brains Smooth was introduced several years back, which is pleasant, creamier and colder, poured from a tap (so not so authentic).

Brains Bitter , or ‘light’ has a very mild, pleasant taste. It is only 3.7% proof, so is quite a civilised pint!

Brains SA (nicknamed “Skull Attack”) tastes far stronger than it actually is. Personally, it gived me a dreadful hangover, but is worth it! By far the best pub in Cardiff for Brains SA is the Royal Oak, on Newport Road. They keep their barrels of SA behind the bar and pour the drink directly from the tap attached to the cask. It tastes like nectar!!

Brains Dark is well spoken of by beer experts. It is very malty like the old fashioned ‘stout’. And it sounds great pronounced with a thick Cardiff accent (Daaaaaaaarrrk!!).

A recent addition to the portfolio is Reverend James. This is not an original Brains beer – "Buckley’s" bought Brains Brewery recently and Reverend James is a Buckley’s recipe. All the same, it is even stronger than SA and an extremely tasty rich flavour.

Brains old brewery on St Mary Street was closed, redeveloped and became the new, trendy “Brewery ¼” in 2003. Brains moved to Buckley’s brewery next to the river. You will see the chimney there.

Llandaff - The Wishing Well

by SabrinaSummerville

If you have been to Llandaff Cathedral, walk uphill by way of Cathedral Close. On your right you will pas a Holy well called St. Teilo's well, although the locals simply refer to it as "the wishing well". St. Teilo lived in the sixth century and was the second Bishop of Llandaff. You don't realise just how old a settlement Llandaff is until you start thinking back to the 6th century.......

Butetown History & Arts Centre

by aaaarrgh

Tiger Bay is extremely important to the identity of Cardiff. The Butetown History and Arts Centre is home to exhibitions of photographs and art about Cardiff's forgotten history.

Tiger Bay is the community that was home to singer Shirley Bassey, for example. It was the area of housing, shops and churches in the docks area of Cardiff, off today's Bute Street. Sailors from around the world settled here before the turn of the 20th century. A complete rainbow of nationalities was represented there (and still is, to an extent). It was the oldest black community in Britain outside of London. At one point in time, there were 50 nationalities in the area.

The Norwegian Church was built for the many Norse sailors and their families. There is still a Mosque and a large Greek Orthodox Church in Butetown.

The old terraced housing of Tiger Bay was demolished in the 1960's and replaced by modern houses and flats. members of the community were relocated to other parts of Cardiff. But there are still large groups of Somali, Yemeni, Afro-Carribean and other nationalities in the area today.

Location: Lower Bute Street, 150m north from the Cardiff Bay seafront.
Closed Mondays.
