Local shops and amenities closest to Redcliffe
Just under a mile away is Bishopston village with its …….. post office cum village store open Monday – Friday 9 -5 Sunday 9 – 1pm a reasonable size Co-op supermarket, parking in the street, it does not have its own car park. Open every day 7am – 10pm. a surf shop, a hairdresser, a charming cafe called the Lamplighter (run by volunteers) and two great pubs – The Joiner’s has its own microbrewery, gaining awards for its beers and The Valley Inn which is across the road, again good beer and serving finer food and a quiz on Tuesdays. A church in this village called St Teilo’s Probably a similar distance from Redcliffe is Newton village which you skirt on the way to Mumbles. Here you will find Newton News, as its name suggests a newsagent but also a handy grocery store. Close by in Nottage road, is a first-class butcher’s selling local meat and fresh veg, also serves as a grocery store. One pub called the Newton Inn. I have been told the food is really good in the latter particularly the fish dishes. Just down the hill from Newton village is Mumbles with its endless restaurants, cafes and pubs, small interesting craft and clothes shops. Nearly forgot the village of Murton, closer to Redcliffe has a lovely pub with a homely atmosphere serving reasonably priced food (cheap curry nights on a Tuesday) A short cut through Bishop’s Wood which is located behind Caswell public car. Expect to take about 30 minutes to get to the Plough and Harrow at Murton. Another post office here, a church and also a handy small chemist. Must mention the garden centre, a vast selection of plants under cover during the Spring and Summer season. Here too, in a rather pleasant rustic open shed freshly picked vegetables for sale but only on a Friday and Saturday between 8 am – 5 pm. Well worth a visit.
