This venue has a very good set of choices for Films, spolit for choice. facilities are very good and salacious layout lends its self quite well to the various events it lays on. Ok, I like Films/Cinema and confess to a bias to this, so I chose to ignore some of the more " Arts based " production that also... More

I have eaten here many times and the food is simply prepared, with good vegetarian options. The other night I had the best gnocchi I have ever had! A bustling place for casual, breakfast, lunch or supper.

This is my second review of Chapter. I can say the coffee is still as horrible as before. Now, there are very nice things about Chapter, such as the various art activities and the cinemas. However, when I compare what Chapter was and what it is now I have to say I do not like it. The food was overpriced... More

My friend and I came to see the one-man show Fear at the theatre within the Chapter centre. The theatre is tiny, which is a positive, as you feel completely immersed in the experience. Well worth venturing slightly out of the city centre.

Chapter all in all is a great place in Cardiff, I saw Brian Gittens there in the theatre and good time for all. Drinks were allowed in and the night was relaxing and hilarious.

Everyone is used to over priced cinemas where you practically have to remortgage the house to buy two tickets which cost around £20 for both of you and that's not even in 3D! £4 each at Chapter! The cinema is brilliantly cosy, around 50 people capacity and the seats are gorgeously comfy and well maintained! The attending staff are really... More

Still not totally sure what 'Chapter' is, we called in for breakfast, which was fantastic, with very friendly staff and very busy with local families. It has a cinema and is a bit of an art gallery as well. It's obviously very popular with locals as it offers many things..
