After seeing signs for this place for miles we thought we would drop in for lunch. From the moment we stepped in we felt very unwelcome and it seemed an effort for the girl behind the counter to even give us a menu. After being ignored for 10 minutes we left. Do bother .. go to the lobster bar down... More

My sister and I travelled to New Quay with 4 young kids. We needed somewhere to rest and eat and Linanes friendly bar was unfortunately packed. I entered the gallery ahead of our entourage and soon realised it wasn't suitable for our group, so we decided to order food and eat outside to avoid disturbing the vibe. We all entered... More

After seeing many advertisements for the gallery, we decided to find it. After a pleasant drive in lovely countryside, we found the gallery and it was quite small. There was no welcome by anyone, we were left to our own devices. Surprised to see books on the use of canabis, in view of the young people. Not much variety of... More

Tasteful offering of Italian light food, Italian organic wines, olive oils, home-cooked gorgeous cakes, interesting books and cards for sale, great coffee, wonderful art work on the walls - what is there not to like in this place! Style and attention to detail is everywhere and this building was restored from a ruin - impressive.

It's a tiny bit pricey, but you do get quality food and coffee in this lovely little cafe by the Flaggy Shore. Also loved that you could wander around and look at the work of local artists. Really enjoyed the coffee cake, and the server was absolutely lovely. I'd come back in the evening to try their imported Italian wine... More

There is a lovely range of paintings, crafts and gifts on display. The building and the setting our lovely. I am afraid that that is all good about it.

On a small piece of land cut from a cow field stands an attractive stone building which we (a group of six adults renting a nearby farmhouse) visited daily named the Russell Gallery. As a gallery it offers unique, traditional, and contemporary art in a beautiful selection. It also sells monotype cards, textiles, and an assortment of gifts. While pondering... More
