Culley’s takes you on a culinary journey like no other.
Surrounded by the history of the Coal Exchange, Culley’s celebrates the forgotten history of this remarkable building and pairs it with an eclectic offering of fine, local and regional ingredients.
Culley’s is inspired by R.P Culley; the local philanthropist who held the catering contract for The Exchange Restaurant, which was situated in the basement of this grand building. Culley made Cardiff and The Exchange his home where he soon became quite the celebrity, frequently gracing the pages of the local paper after wining and dining the money men of the day.
Like Culley, we are proud of the Exchange and want to share our passion for local heritage with our guests. Sourcing great produce is of the utmost importance and working with the finest suppliers from the region helps to shape and influence our carefully crafted menus. Our menus change with the seasons and reflect our local surroundings including the neighbouring Valley’s and Bay.
Whether you’re coming for breakfast or lunch, a romantic meal for two, a catch up with friends over afternoon tea; Culley’s at The Exchange Hotel has all you need.
