As it happens my husband and I will arrive in Aber (the university of Wales) on my birthday, in about a month. There is nothing on Chowhound about this mid-Wales location. Any hint where to eat a slightly special dinner (not expecting Taillevent). We won't have a car and I don't know if taxis are easily gotten. (New Yorkers here.) Any kind of food suggestions welcome. Even a nice pub as long as it is not noisy — which might be hard given the student population of the town. (This is an advanced age birthday.)
If there is some famous eating experience that I have yet to ferret out on-line that requires a drive/r, we might do it, but not if it is a more than a 20-30 minutes drive.
