We've got some excellent news about the cafe bar space on our first floor! Milk & Sugar, an independent cafe and bistro as well as a Cardiff coffee brand, will be moving into our cafe bar space and joining our team. The opening day is set for the 3rd of July and we're over the moon! More information about these developments will be shared in time but in the meantime we would like to extend a very warm welcome to the Milk & Sugar team. Here are a few pictures of the delicious delicacies at their other cafes dotted around Cardiff. Excited yet?!

Tourist information returning to yr hen lyfrgell! 

The Tourist Information Centre is returning to Yr Hen Lyfrgell! Furniture, materials and technical gadgets have appeared in the bright open space next to Bodlon shop. It will be a chance for tourists and visitors alike to learn about Cardiff and have a browse at the lovely Welsh products on offer in Bodlon. The opening of the centre couldn't have come at a better time as the UEFA Champions League preparations around the city are underway. We're getting ready for a very exciting few weeks in Cardiff! 




We have recently launched a closed Facebook group called Caerdydd ddwyieithog | bilingual Cardiff in order to promote bilingualism and Welsh within Cardiff's businesses. The group is  a forum for Cardiff's businesses that want to be more bilingual. We want to create a network that welcomes business owners as well as individuals who can offer their services and advice regarding integrating the Welsh language into Cardiff-based businesses. If you'd like to be part of our Facebook group whether you're a business or an individual click here or email us at

Yr Hen Lyfrgell is looking forward to welcoming friends as well as community groups that use to meet at the cafe bar before Christmas including the Clonc dros ginio for those wanting to improve their Welsh.
