If you’re in Cardiff this Christmas season and fancy a tasty treat to warm you up, then head over to the festive Alpine food and drink area on Castle Street.

Take a seat in your own Alpine ski hut, or picnic table, and order from a range of stalls using the Yoello app. Then sit back, relax, and the food and drinks will be delivered straight to your table.

In a hurry? The stalls also serve takeaways so, if you can’t wait to hit the shops again – or you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and stroll around Bute Park, they are in the perfect location to grab a bite to eat or a hot drink.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I need to book in advance?

There are no advance bookings, so whenever you are ready grab your household and / or bubble and head to Castle Street.

Will I have to queue?

At busy times you may need to queue but when it’s your turn, the host will direct you and your party to one of the empty tables. The facilities are wheelchair and pushchair friendly. The area is flat and chairs can be removed from tables to accommodate wheelchairs and pushchairs (please note, there are no highchairs available).

What about the weather?

There will be limited indoor seating inside your cosy Alpine ski hut. The Ski huts will have heaters inside them. If it’s a colder day why not bring a shawl or a blanket to relax with? We are unable to provide them due to risk of contamination.

Will there be toilet facilities?

Yes, toilet facilities are available and are located within the grounds of Cardiff Castle.

Will dogs be allowed?

Dogs are welcome, but must stay near their owners and be kept on a lead. Please note that it will not be possible for water bowls to be provided, due to hygiene concerns.
