Eating Out

Merthyr Tydfil is on the culinary map for the first time. People used to visit this great town for its industrial heritage and its position as the gateway to the Brecon Beacons. Now chef Jamie O’Leary is drawing visitors from all over the country wanting to try the delicious dishes at JOL’s restaurant which is being compared to Michelin starred restaurants. Customers are surprised and amazed that Merthyr can for the first time boast of having a top class restaurant. For Jamie it is a dream come true.“I grew up here and like everyone else I had to travel miles for a quality meal. My vision was to create something special here on our doorstep. I am delighted that people love coming here and that my food is winning a reputation far and wide.”
