Chapel 1877 Chapel 1877

Welcome to Chapel 1877, the most vibrant restaurant in Cardiff. Three floors of luxurious surroundings, themed on the renovated Chapel first constructed in 1877.

The French-Italian Gothic themed creation was originally designed by the architect Henry C Harris, renowned for his incredible structures throughout Cardiff and Wales in the late 1800s. Unlike like any other restaurants in Cardiff, Chapel 1877 offer a bespoke fine dining experience in the city centre.

Staying true to its concept, the building has gone through what can only be described as a renaissance. A stunning mix of medieval and contemporary has been brought together to create a spectacular setting for the Cardiff restaurant as well as a unique wedding venue.

The first floor hosts our restaurant with its A La Carte menu and fine wines from around the world. The main bar, situated on the ground floor is our do-drop-in area. Anything from a cup of coffee in the mornings to a drink and a meal from our bar menu awaits.


Luxury Afternoon Tea

Chapel 1877’s afternoon high tea is served in the spectacular upper floor restaurant amongst the beautiful chandeliers and arched Gothic windows. We’ve carefully selected 8 different types of loose-leaf tea to compliment, all presented on our unique 3 tier oval stand.
