Festive full house at 1176

Some of our catering staff at an event at Cardigan Castle

1176 looks forward to another busy year

Lord Rhys held a big feast at Cardigan Castle during the Christmas of 1176 – and more than 800 years later the castle’s 1176 restaurant is continuing the tradition.

The festive period has seen bookings soar for chef David Coates and his team with the serving of hundreds of Christmas dinners and lunches.

2016 has been the castle’s first full year of trading. 1176 has served literally tens of thousands of diners over the last 12 months, catering for castle visitors, people attending the summer events as well as the usual lunches, afternoon teas and dinners.

And 2017 looks set to be an even busier year with eight wedding bookings, several functions plus the summer events season.
Chef David Coates said: “We’re really looking forward to next year. 2016 has been a very busy year and really set the foundations for the future success of 1176 and the castle.”

The restaurant will be closed for a week from January 1, 2017, to give staff a well earned break – but will re-open on January 7.
