Note that alcohol is not served at The Clink, but we’ll take you to a Cardiff pub for a drink afterwards.

The Clink is special not just for its food. It’s at Cardiff Prison, and trains and employs serving prisoners, who work in the kitchen and in the restaurant.

About 49% of UK prisoners re-offend within a year of leaving prison. The Clink aims to break the cycles responsible for this, by providing prisoners with skills, qualifications and prospects, and helping them find secure full-time employment in the hospitality sector upon their release.

As well as awards for its food, The Clink has won several for its educational work and its success in the rehabilitation of prisoners.
