The Clink Cymru at HMP Cardiff opened to the general public in September 2012 and offers over 30 category D prisoners from HMP Prescoed and HMP Cardiff full-time work within the 96 cover restaurant and kitchen. Prisoners train towards gaining nationally recognised City & Guilds NVQ qualifications before returning to their retrospective prisons at the end of the working day. Upon their release, The Clink Charity helps graduates find employment within the Welsh catering and hospitality industry.

The restaurant is a flagship example of a unique charitable project that is committed to reducing reoffending rates throughout Wales in partnership with HMPS. The restaurant positively promotes the rehabilitation and reintegration of prisoners and also champions the wealth of quality, fresh and organic produce available throughout Wales.

Available for exclusive hire, The Clink Cymru boasts a private dining room that can seat 24 and offers projector and AV facilities that can be used for meetings, conferences and presentations.
