The Woodville

The Woodville is a gorgeous Cardiff pub now taking bookings for 26th April. With a spacious beer garden decked out with toasty heaters and huge umbrellas, it's the perfect spot to enjoy that all-important first pint, with a menu of comfort food classics to match.

Gin And Bake wowed patrons with their gorgeous fairy-lit terrace area last summer, and the team will once again be opening the garden gates for yet more botanical sips and intricate desserts. Serving drinks and dishes from morning 'til late, seven days a week, this Instagrammable spot is the ideal place for a long overdue reunion with your gang.

While Pennyroyal devotees will have to wait until mid-May to sit inside this quirky cocktail bar, they can enjoy its signature tipples to takeaway up until then. From freshly poured pints to handcrafted concoctions, the experimental venue will be keeping your city centre strolls and sun-soaked picnics well-oiled.

Curado is another gorgeous Cardiff restaurant reopening in April. Offering diners the chance to be transported to sunnier climes, this Spanish-inspired menu is made up of fresh seafood, vibrant veggie dishes and hand carved jamon. Book an alfresco table from Tuesday 27th April onwards to get your fill of tasty tapas and jugs of sangria.

While Tommy Heaney may be holding off on opening his main eatery, little sister restaurant Uisce will be welcoming guests back to its outside tent and courtyard on the 26th. One of the most exciting restaurant reopenings in Cardiff in April, Uisce will be getting back on it with their stunning small plates, fine wines and warming coffees.
