DiningMerricks Bar and Restaurant at Cottrell Park Golf Resort is well worth a visit for a great night out and a low cost taxi home, while the children will enjoy a trip out to one of the many popular family restaurants at the Culverhouse Cross retail parks, including Burger King, Pizza Hut and Hangfire Smokehouse.
Other local eateries worth investigating include the pub grub at The Longhouse, The Traherne Arms, the Three Horseshoes, the Aubrey Arms and the Beech Tree Inn.
Nearby Cardiff boasts some excellent restaurants for that special occasion, including the top rated French cuisine at The Pot, the traditional British food at The Clink, along with the many restaurants of the brewery quarter. For a romantic evening, dine at the water’s edge at Mermaid’s Quay, and don’t miss the a la carte afternoon teas at Tempus at Tides in Cardiff Bay.

EducationAs with many small Welsh villages, the local primary school, St Nicholas Church in Wales primary, is at the heart of village life, with most local pupils attending. As an alternative, Peterston-Super-Ely Church in Wales Primary is just a mile and a half away. Both schools are rated ‘good’ by Estyn.
Older pupils will need to travel a little, to either Cowbridge Comprehensive, or St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School, but there are regular busses. Once again, both schools are rated ‘good’. The Cardiff area also provides a selection of Welsh language and independent schools as part of your education choice.
