Llandaff Ghost Walk

September 1, 2017 - Author: melyn

Llandaf resident and LlandafPost reader Caerwyn Williams has been in touch to say how much he enjoyed the Llandaff Ghost Walk last night.

Caerwyn writes to say:

“Yes, the walking  tour at Llandaf was quite something. There are a few stories about ghosts seen in the area around the Cathedral. The witch from ‘Ffordd y Meirw’ (the street of the dead) was particularly scary. She had red hair, green skin and wings. She usually crawls on the ground. Walking around in pitch dark adds to the suspense ! I left the landing light on after going to sleep that night.

“I can recommend the walk. It’s  very scary, even though there are no gimmicks, just the stories.”  Book @CardiffHistory !”

Heathcock pub Llandaf Cardiff reopened

August 12, 2017 - Author: melyn

It’s great to see the Heathcock pub reopened. We went to last night’s taster evening where I took these photos. The lime panacotta was delicious and the I tried the spicy meatballs, which could do with even more spice for my taste. The menu looks great, with ribeye steak at 11.95 looks like great value and there’s a  good range of dishes. Good luck to the new patrons as they open tonight.

Three recent changes in Llandaf: Gusto, beech tree and Heathcock

June 23, 2017 - Author: melyn

Just pondering over three recent changes to Llandaf:

  1. Gusto has closed. I’m going to really miss the coffee, food and welcome at Gusto Sardinian deli at Insole, Llandaf. It had one of the best cups of coffee in Cardiff, I loved the frittatta, Tarte de Nonna and my family and friends will miss popping in to see Andrea and his family.
  2. The beech tree in this garden, by the Victorian post box has had to be cut down because of a fungal root infection, which has also affected trees in Insole Court.
  3. The closure of the Heathcock pub has opened up an opportunity for someone to make a go of a new venture. To be honest, with all the homes which will be built on the site of BBC Llandaf, this pub could be a goldmine in the future.
