Completely closed and deserted. Poorly maintained garden.

The menu downstairs was not the food that was served. They could not accept card payment since there was no adult person working in the restaurant (!) The sallad buffé was a sad looking thing and the knäckebröd had gone stale. And the complimentary water was lukewarm. The skånska äggakakan that was served was quite clearly a semi finished product and more like an omelette than äggakaka. The portions were quite small but once requested we we're given a second serving by the very nice waitress. The service by the staff was very good given the circumstances and I don't think that the kids working that day should bear any blame for the poor quality.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
