Went there for Sunday lunch. We had the set menu. Which seemed very reasonable. Two of us had starters, the soup,which was very nice, and the trout,which hardly filled the centre of the plate. Three of us had chicken and one beef for our main...More

After many delighted visits here over the years, we were disappointed to find the BofG has increased prices whilst worsening value. Immediately noted that the multiple specials boards of old have gone - there's a monthly menu and that's it. This reads alright, but with...More

Description
The Bunch of Grapes at Ynysangharad Road Pontypridd backs onto one of the last few remnants of the Glamorganshire Canal which was constructed in 1792.

Built circa 1800 to satisfy the thirst of the hot forge masters who were making all the heavy anchor chains for the British Navy and all the passing canal workers on their way with to Cardiff with full loads of Coal and Iron Ore, business was brisk with male dominated ale consumption. This trend continued to well into the mid 1900's. It is rumoured that when Isombard Kingdom Brunel came to visit the Chainworks he was so impressed with what he saw and on securing the deal to supply him he celebrated with an ale in the Bunch of Grapes.

Now tastefully and sympathetically refurbished the Bunch of Grapes offers a warm relaxed atmosphere both in the public bar and the restaurant where the emphasis is on quality, locally sourced foods, ales and ciders.
