Set in the Vale of Glamorgan just seven miles west of Cardiff, Cowbridge is an ancient market town whose history goes back to Roman times. Today, it is one of the most popular towns in South Wales and has been voted by one national newspaper as 'the best place to live in Wales'. What's the secret? Well, beautiful countryside and a stunning coastline create a wonderful natural environment, while the pretty High Street with its independent shops is another highlight. With regular produce markets and a renowned annual food festival, this is also something of a foodie town and restaurants in Cowbridge are a key part of the vibrant local dining scene.
Ideally located between the country and the sea, chefs in Cowbridge restaurants are spoiled for choice when it comes to local produce – you'll be spoiled, too, when you enjoy the results! Saltmarsh lamb is some of the best you'll taste and vegetarians will love the famous Glamorgan sausage, made with cheese leeks and breadcrumbs. When you add some excellent fresh seafood from the fishing villages on the nearby coast, you can understand why restaurants in Cowbridge are building such an enviable reputation.
When you you start to crave curry, it's time to hit the Indian restaurants of Cowbridge. Take Shampan Indian, for example, a longtime favourite in the centre of town with a reliable reputation for turning out classic Indian cooking of the highest standards. All the standards are here but the menu is made more interesting with the inclusion of some excellent house specialities and some marvelous Malaysian dishes to tempt you away from your usual go to dishes. Trust us – if you succumb to these urges, you won't be disappointed.
In this buzzy little market town, Cowbridge restaurants are at the very heart of the social action. Meet your gang after work for a quick bite and catch up, or push the boat out with a celebratory weekend meal.
