This seems the place to go, lots of nice bars and local to almost everything, we landed on a very young scene being tired as we had been awake since 4am travelling we decided to go back to the hotel, the pub was called the Dirty Onion and it was mobbed but seemed very young.

Having visited Salt on several occasions we booked for Christmas Lunch as a party of eight. Very disappointing. Vegetables undercooked, roast potatoes were like chips and no mash potato.

stayed in the ramada encore in the cathedral quarter which is a 5min walk from the town center plus plenty of excellent bars and resturants nearby within a few minutes walk of each other.

We ate in the Cloth Ear gastropub which is part of the Merchant Hotel. Shared a starter of seafood orzo which was delicious. I had the salmon (cooked to perfection) and himself had the beef and chicken skewer.

This area has really changed over the last five years. There are countless bars/restaurants/coffee shops that are all fantastic. Great range from old-style pubs to trendy night clubs. There is something for everyone's style preferences. Great for young professionals. Little on the pricey side.

I visited with my goddaughter. The food was great and plentiful, service very timely (even though it was our waitress' first night, she did a wonderful job) and the cost was great for the budget conscious.

The Cathedral Quarter has a bit of something for everyone, culture, eating places, shops, history and just a general buzz, especially in November/December when the Christmas market is on at City Hall.

This area is nice and a short walk from downtown. The cathedral is newer than most in europe but is really nice.

Stayed at the City Ibis and found it very central for shopping and sightseeing and the cultural quarter as we were attending a concert there.
