The Clink CARDIFF

Why not enter the spirit of generosity as you enjoy Christmas dinner this year by dining at The Clink? Staffed by prisoners working towards qualifications in food preparation and customer service, The Clink has shown a 49 per cent reduction in reoffending since it opened.

For Christmas, the prisoner cooks-in-training have worked closely with the chefs to create a special traditional menu with several modern twists, including pulled pork rillettes with apple gel, julienne of apple, crackling and homemade sage focaccia and pan-fried fillet of Scottish salmon served on champ mash and rustic ratatouille.

Not only will you come away with a belly full of good food, but a full heart too. theclinkcharity.org
