What is a Cheeky Vimto?
Well, to understand that you have to know who Charlotte Church is - I'd be interested to know if her fame has spread round the world!
I hate the cult of the celebrity but if there's an article anywhere about Charlotte Church I can't pass it by. And she is said to drink this 'cocktail' :
- Pour 1 shot of Port into a pint glass with ice, top up with 1 bottle of Blue WKD (a nasty alcopop),
You can sample this local delicacy in Newcastle Emlyn.
Anyway, Newcastle Emlyn is a very nice Welsh market town with some great pubs and a wonderful Indian restaurant. The Ivy Bush probably doesn't go in for Cheeky Vimtos as it had a comfortable, real ale atmosphere and a really snug bar + good pool table. There are plenty of other pubs in town where you can sample them ... Yes, I have had too many of these...
Dress Code: The Ivy Bush was comfortable, slightly hippy - other pubs more the smart/casual look

Address: Oh come on...
As we were 'going back to nature' by staying in the vardo, I was determined that we were going to eat the 'Produce of the Land and Sea'. I read that there were restaurants serving simple local seafood, shops specialising in organic produce, local sheep cheese, a Honey Farm that created wonderful delicacies.. and no doubt lots of wild produce too. I imagined myself gathering nettles and edible funghi in the woods and on the hillside. I forgot that it was going to be November.
We arrived in Cardigan in the gathering dusk, damp, cold and tired. The road behind us had been swept away by rain and wind.
We did actually sample some delicious local produce: a really reviving bowl of Cawl (Welsh vegetable soup) in the Black Lion Hotel in Cardigan High St. After that we retreated to Somerfield Supermarket. Here, my husband got increasingly worried, as I kept saying: "We need to get really simple things that don't take a lot of preparation". He was beginning to get the idea - we weren't going somewhere with 'facilities'.
What to buy: What special items should you shop for in Cardigan?
Well, there is a handy supermarket!
You can also buy surfer gear; there is a great looking covered market for the organic cheeses we didn't buy (it was shutting up by the time we got there). Also a shop called "Gandalf's Garden".
And a fancy dress shop - there seems to be one in every Welsh town of any size at all. Why?
What to pay: The supermarket is very reasonably priced.
