tells you all you need to know about this excellent restaurant - The Harbour
Malcolm Gluck, wine critic..."It takes dedication to get here, I recently returned from a weekend stay - it is also a hotel....Its secret? Owners Glyn and Menna Heulyn see it as an extension of their family. Indeed the place - and its chattering, pretention-loathing locals - are family. The beers (numerous) are local, the food is local, the staff are local and the weather local."... "Over my weekend I enjoyed a Gavi di Gavi, An Alsace gewurtztraminer, an Argentinian malbec, an albarino and a bottle of Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Pauillac 2004 (for a bargain £45)."
This popular Café with a stunning view over Aberystwyth town to the sea,
offers a mouth-watering selection of freshly made salads, hot meals and
snacks, plus plates full of homemade cakes!
Hot lunches are served from 12 noon with vegetarian options always available.

A coracle is a hand-made work of art. Each one, like the pieces in this exhibition, is an expression of its maker. I'm passionate about creating exciting and emotive images that capture both the coraclers and the character of the Teifi waters, by combining bold composition with movement, colour, and texture. deborah withey

In his recent work, Fitzjohn explores concerns regarding our changing climate. Themes focused in our consciousness buy the recent storms that devastated our coastline reminding us of the fluid and changeable nature of our landscape. The installation is titled Fimbulwinter, which in Norse mythology is a period of three successive winters, an environmental disaster that is the immediate prelude to the end of the world. While the world may not be ending, it is changing and this work responds to this by imagining of the end of things as they are, the mutability and adaptability of nature and the hope embedded in possible futures. EXHIBITION OPENING An opening reception will be held at 3pm on Saturday 11th October to launch this exhibition - there is a warm welcome to all. Come and join us for tea, cake and fizz!

Ian Watson was born and raised in the South of England, studied Fine Art at Hastings College and later completed a fine art degree at Howard Gardens, Cardiff. He now lives and works in Cardiff, having spent over a decade working in film and television post production. The drawings and paintings found in this exhibition are largely informed by a misspent youth hiding out with like-minded mutants in video rental shops and woodlands of East Sussex, head buried in headphones, soaking up the occult messages from a collection of heavy metal cassettes.
