A Christmas party isn’t complete unless there is a delectable feast. At Neighbourhood we don’t do things in halves, which is why the menu will be the wonderful camembert bar which  has us drooling just thinking about it. You can indulge in a selection of camemberts and flavoursome toppings alongside the variety of sides you can dip into the warm, oozing baked cheese.  See who can get the biggest cheese pull – if you can resist not digging in long enough!

Are you tired of the same old tunes on repeat at every party? Not this time! Be your own DJ and take over the playlist to bring the vibes and keep the party popping, with your curated playlist you know everyone will love and will get everyone up and dancing (even the oldies!). It doesn’t matter if your DJ skills aren’t up to scratch as Neighbourhood can bring in a DJ to ensure a cracking night!


If you live out of town, don’t let that snow on your parade and stop the party. We have three boutique bedrooms right above the restaurant where you can crash in the comfy beds after a few Christmas tipples. The perfect end to a perfect night!

Mwg's Upcoming Journey - The Newest Wonder in Wales

Mwg's Upcoming Journey - The Newest Wonder in Wales

Mwg (pronounced moog), is the new kid on the block in Cardiff’s food scene. It brings together Welsh delicacies from land and sea and cooks them over charcoal. Mwg is a custom built barbecue grill and open-fire plancha, which creates a unique and flavourful cooking experience, with a focus on Welsh produce. They champion simple Welsh ingredients and create a selection of gourmet small dishes with rich flavours and fresh, seasonal produce.

This culinary journey was born on a foundation of solid friendship and shared passions between two best mates, Tudor and Alex. The inspiration behind the creation of Mwg came from a trip they spent together along the Welsh coast, where they got to appreciate the nation’s beauty coupled with the deep love for Welsh produce, cooking and hospitality. They embarked on a journey to celebrate the essence of Wales through local ingredients and suppliers, with a strong focus dedicated to authenticity and quality. Keeping it in the family, Alex’s brother in law owns Cwm Kits Farm, located just a stone’s throw from Cardiff, who are the exclusive artisan supplier of all the Welsh lamb, who ensure the use of well-treated, free range animals to be used in the dishes.

When asked why local produce is such an important aspect to Mwg, Tudor and Alex responded saying “we pride ourselves in the abundance of Welsh produce available right on our doorstep, it’s got to be some of the best in the world!’. They endeavour to use local produce wherever possible in their seasonal dishes, to showcase the authenticity and the essence of the wonderful Wales.

In terms of the backgrounds of the faces behind the business, you are in safe hands. Tudor has 18 years hospitality experience, so he knows all the ins and outs of the industry, firstly in music event production, before entering the world of food events in 2011. Now running a series of successful street food festivals across the UK, owning a restaurant, and a keen home cook and food lover himself , he has a taste for great ideas and knows his way around the kitchen after kick starting his cooking journey in November 2022.

Looking to the future for Mwg, the opportunities are endless. With it being a passion project for Alex and Tudor, they are excited to see what the future holds – who knows what that will be! Check out their instagram @mwgcardiff to be the first to hear about their next exciting ventures and enquire about their catering possibilities. Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming opportunities to get your hands on the wonderful Mwg!

Fully Booked in Record Time - Cardiff’s £10 Lobster Menu

Fully Booked in Record Time - Cardiff’s £10 Lobster Menu

After a cracking summer of crustaceans, it has sadly come to an end for the £10 lobster menu. It took Cardiff by storm, selling out in a snap of a claw, which meant, of course we had to extend it for a further two weeks so that everyone could get their lobster fix! With six weeks fully booked up by lobster lovers, some might say it was a claw-some success.

1,180 Lobsters Sold 

1,551 Covers Served 

764 Cocktails Made

Here in the heart of Cardiff, is the small restaurant with big ideas – Neighbourhood Kitchen, where the £10 lobster menu originated. After the big crawfish boil in the summer, we clearly couldn’t get enough of the crustaceans as the new lobster menu was released. You could indulge in a lavish lobster meal for a cracking price that didn’t break the bank – it’s not very often you get those two points in the same sentence! The food lovers of Cardiff clearly liked the idea just as much as we did as it sold out in record time, even needing to be extended.

The menu saw a whole 350g Canadian lobster coated in lashings of garlic and parsley butter as the £10 hit. If you wanted to upgrade your lobster to something a little different, you could tuck into the melt in the mouth lobster thermidor – two halves of a lobster smothered in thermidor sauce and parmesan cheese, or the rich and creamy lobster mac and cheese, or lobster rolls. If you were feeling a bit crabby, you could try the Korean inspired soft shell crab burger , and don’t worry vegans of course we had something for you, the vegan not-so-fishy-fish-finger sandwich, with mushy peas and tartar sauce – a true classic.

The lobster mains were the stars of the show, but what’s a great meal without killer sides? At Neighbourhood they don’t get forgotten about. Our handpicked sides go hand in hand with the mains to create an all round top tier meal. The paprika smoked corn ribs dipped in Brains dark BBQ sauce were a flavour fusion, alongside the whitefish croquettes and kewpie mayo and the nduja and parmesan asparagus. The guests thoroughly enjoyed tucking into a table spread of great plates.

Not only is Neighbourhood an excellent restaurant, but a superb cocktail bar. With the skilled bartenders perfectly pairing cocktails with the lobster menu to elevate the dining experience. Each cocktail was thoughtfully designed to enhance the flavours of each dish. Our signature margarita was a true hit, and you can never have just one!

The £10 lobster menu was thoroughly enjoyed by the customers, staff and chefs. Everyone enjoyed getting stuck right in and having a laugh whilst eating great food. Bibs were on, hair was tied back, and belts were loosened as the lobster lovers of Cardiff tucked into a right ol’ feast. It was definitely an experience and it’s sad to see the tail end of it, but, of course, at Neighbourhood, we always have something else tucked up our sleeve.
