The Clink Restaurant, In front of HMP Cardiff, Knox Road, Cardiff, CF24
The Clink Cymru at Her Majesty’s Prison Cardiff opened to the public in September 2012. Over 30 category D prisoners from HMP Prescoed and HMP Cardiff work full-time within the 96 cover restaurant and kitchen and train towards gaining nationally recognised City & Guilds NVQ qualifications before returning to their retrospective prisons at the end of the working day. Upon their release, The Clink Charity will help graduates find employment within the Welsh catering and hospitality industry.
Although situated outside the prison walls, the restaurant is a flagship example of a unique charitable project that is committed to reducing re-offending rates throughout Wales in partnership with HMPS.
The restaurant positively promotes the rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners and also champions the wealth of quality, fresh and organic produce available throughout Wales with the vast majority of ingredients such as vegetables, fruit, meat and poultry and herbs coming for the farms and gardens department at HMP Prescoed.
The cost of this event is £20.95 (see sample menu) per head for a three course meal (excluding drinks, please note that only non-alcoholic drinks are sold at the Clink).
