Food and Drink

Enjoy a wealth of fine local produce in our hotels and restaurants. Menus regularly feature Welsh lamb and beef, a wealth of cheeses, seafood, salmon and sewin – a sea trout that is a speciality of the River Teifi – accompanied by fine produce with low food miles.

Cardigan’s Guildhall Market regularly features a range of foods produced within 5 miles of town, including savoury scones, quiches, pastries, cakes, meat and gluten-free produce. The resident Caffi Carn Alw chef uses as many local ingredients as he can to fill his menu each week and always has a range of internationally inspired dishes available. You will also find plenty of local produce from the range of independent local shops on the high street.

You might enjoy your coffee while watching the sun sink slowly over the horizon casting an array of colour over the seascape – no two sunsets are ever the same.

When it’s time to go home, take a true taste of Cardigan back with you, to remind you of your visit to working flour mills, cheese makers and honey farms or the local farmers markets and food festivals. Visit Taste Trail Wales for where to find local food and drink to eat now or buy to take home.
