Eating and Drinking in Aberystwyth


For a small town there are many restaurants to choose from in Aberystwyth here's a selection of our favourites;


Very friendly and airy restaurant serving middle eastern food, the restaurant also contains a small shop and second hand bookstore. 


Our Spanish Deli and Tapas bar - small but delicious, there's limited seating so book ahead if you want to be certain of a seat.


Even smaller this fish restaurant is situated right on the prom by south beach.


On the sea front with views across Cardigan bay - pizzas, pastas, cocktails and more.

Light of Asia:

Our favourite Indian restaurant.

The Olive Branch:

A long time fixture of Aberystwyth this Greek restaurant is just opposite the Pier with views across the bay.

Here's a link to many more if nothing hits the spot.

We're told that Aberystwyth has one of the highest concentrations of pubs per square mile. We've not put it to the test but there's a link below if you're really keen.

Our favoured Pub for those who like Real Ale is:

The Ship and Castle

But there are many, many, many, more to choose from....

If eating and drinking begin to pall or you just want to walk off that extra oyster - our beaches, the promenade (you have to 'kick the bar' at the end of the prom) and harbour are a relaxing way to end your evening – with luck you may spot dolphins or seals.
