Somewhere nice to eat?

by shelleyi

Hi
We are going to see the Police at the Millenium Stadium in October, and are staying in Newport Holiday Inn Express. We would like to eat somewhere nice before the gig. Any suggestions? Should we travel to the stadium and eat near there? The gates open at 4.30pm so we would like somewhere that serves late afternoon but that is good and semi special as we are celebrating birthdays too.
Please help.

xx

There are many good quality restaurants in Cardiff and several near to the Millenium stadium.
The 'Old Brewery Quarter' is a popular eating area, as is 'Mill Lane'. Another road is 'Church Street'. All are within 5 to 10 minutes walk of the stadium.
A little further away is 'Guildford Cresc' (15 to 20 minutes walk) where there is a superb Portugese restaurant (The Madeira), but I'm not sure what time it opens.

The "Riverside Cantonese" is a possibility, one of the best Chinese restaurants you will find. They are only a few minutes walk across the River Taff from the stadium. I live nearby and went for a birthday meal there, which was top class and very reasonably priced. According to their website they serve Dim Sum till 5pm and are open from midday till late.

The Riverside Cantonese is absolutely lovely, gets my vote :)

Travel Tips for Cardiff

You should tour Cardiff...

by digitjoe

You should tour Cardiff Castle. It is the heart and history of the city. It provides the base to understand the pride people have in their city. From the castle you should stroll the gardens attached to enjoy the atmosphere. I miss the smell of Brains brewery when it was malting for a new batch of beer.

European Heritage Open Days

by M0B1US

Every year at the castle there are 'Open' weekends during the summer months taking on various forms of heritage activities.

As a Cardiff Pass holder I was able to attend over the weekend of Sept 18th & 19th and was entertained by falconry displays and re-enactments by the Cardiff Castle Garrison (c. 13/14th century) and the 41st foot of the Royal Regiment of Wales in Napoleonic Dress. All of these groups are actually based at the castle.

It was great to be able to watch the Napoleonic forces fight each other in skirmish line formation with artillery support - though very noise and smoky!

The mediaeval encampment was open to visitors and it was fascinating to watch chainmail being made as well as getting your hands on the weaponry and finding out what a Fuller's Groove on a sword was. I was there on the Sunday and apparently there were supposed to be a few mediaeval skirmishes as well - but apparently too many of the guys had hurt each other the day before! Something about slipping on the wet grass... ;-)

Llandaff Cathedral

by uglyscot

At last I have managed to visit Llandaff Cathedral, and discovered this interesting little town.
There are medieaval buildings, ruins and of course the cathedral which is much larger than it seems from some angles.
To reach the cathedral there are many stone steps, so beware. The facade has statues, gargoyles and interesting stone work. The gravestones are also eyecatching as is the ancient cross.
Information from Cathedral site:
The earliest parts of the present Cathedral however, date from the twelfth century when Bishop Urban built the first stone church, that being a Norman replacement for St Teilo's Little Minster.
The new Cathedral was later extended but following the Reformation, its fortunes declined. Repeated storm damage, desecration, lost revenue and prolonged neglect led to almost total ruin, before restoration during the 18th and 19th centuries. Extensive and severe war damage in 1941 necessitated major rebuilding and restoration. Under the architect George Pace, this challenging task was begun and it included the installation of Jacob Epstein's Christ in Majesty surmounted on a parabolic arch, Within its walls stand the tombs of St Dyfrig and St Teilo - two of the Cathedral's Celtic Patron Saints. In addition the Cathedral contains work by medieval, pre-Raphaelite, Victorian and contemporary artists and craftsmen, including Rossetti's The Seed of David and John Piper's The Supper at Emmaus

There is a Shop , and Wheelchair access.
The Cathedral is open daily from approximately 9.00am to 7.00pm.

There are frequent Bus Services to Llandaff from Cardiff City Centre as follows:
• Route 25, 33, 33A & 62 from Cardiff Central Railway/Bus Station
Road access to the Cathedral is straightforward as follows:
• From City Centre - At Cardiff Castle, drive West and cross River Taff; turn right into Cathedral Road (A4119) and follow signs to Llandaff.
