Reviews

  • Mother of the bride

    Our bairn and her feller decided to celebrate their marriage in style so booked The Undercroft at Cardiff Castle.
    We arrived the day before to deliver personal items and the welcome couldn't have been better. On the big day we walked down the main shopping street, in our finery, to the castle main gate. I hadn't been inside the venue previously and it took my breath away. After a moving ceremony the room was re-arranged and the meal was served. Excellent food served by pleasant, friendly, attentive staff. Overall a brilliant day and I'm not just saying this because my daughter was the beautiful bride.

  • Grateful guest

    What a fantastic place to get married, amazing venue, fabulous service, great food and there are not enough words to express our gratitude to the organisers John and then Michael on the day. They made the whole experience magical for us and even arranged for the sun to come out for the arrival of the bride. Totally amazing experience and I would recommend Cardiff Castle to anybody who wants the full romantic wedding day.

  • Delighted guest

    I have only ever been to Cardiff Castle as a day visitor, but, had the privilege of being a wedding guest in December!

    What a magical location! The marriage was in the basement of the castle which was superb, and very atmospheric, then we had drinks in the bar area next door, and then we had a wonderful meal in the main banqueting hall, which was just beautiful, dark and atmospheric :-) There were no fewer than three Christmas trees in the banqueting hall :-) Simply stunning.
