Having visited on numerous occasions, the standard of the food and service is always excellent. Good range of tapas and drinks at reasonable prices. Ambience can be lively but always friendly. I highly recommend

I have phoned Barr 44 in Penarth and they confirm that vouchers CAN be bought, either on line or by calling in to the restaurant. Good luck.
