We struggled to find this place, but at the end we got there. Classic large pub, a bit dated interior, but food was really nicely cooked. The only downside is cost of food and drinks. Could be a bit cheaper...

Second visit and there will be a third! Those of you who read my reviews will realise I enjoy a variety of 'fine dining' good quality places that always deliver and just pub food with a good variety of dishes at value for money in pleasant surroundings. The Caeffatri provides the latter. Great choice of menu and £4.99 specials for... More

Recently went to the Caeffatri for a meal to celebrate my mum's special 85th birthday, my mum had the gammon which was huge so we asked for another plate so we could take some off so the plate didn't look so full. One of my sisters had the pork valentine with a pepper sauce but she said it was a... More

Went there recently for a family meal very disappointed in the service. Would have been nice if we all received our meals together. When we did get them my partners fish was dry with soggy batter. My daughter's steak was tough and chewy and mine was still bleeding to death although I asked for medium.would not make a second visit... More

This is a great venue with a great atmosphere. The food was great with great portion sizes. The prices are reasonable. The family were really friendly and helpful. Will be returning with the rest of family as such a great venue for food.

After reading reviews on here and not finding anything but tapas and Italian elsewhere in Bridgend, we thought we'd try this place. Service was OK, older lady was lovely but nobody checked on us until we we're nearly finished. Girl behind the bar who we paid with barely uttered a word to us as she tapped her fingers impatiently. Maybe... More

Visited the Caeffatri grill for a birthday gathering with the parents - lovely. Great atmosphere, service very punctual. I'd heard things from people I knew who'd gone before, upon arrival it didn't disappoint. Staff were polite and engaging. Great quality food and would recommend to people staying or living in the area.

Thank Billy S

The Caeffatri Bar and Grill is a privately owned bar and restaurant in the heart of Bridgend. The Management has over 20 years experience in the leisure industry and following the success of The Highwayman Inn, Rhoose, decided to embark on a new venture.

Situated off Coity Road, close to the Princess of Wales Hospital, The Premier Inn & McArthur Glen outlet village at Junction 35 of the M4, the restaurant is open daily for lunch and evening meal.

The Caeffatri has undergone a substantial investment to give it a new lease of life with a fully refurbished bar, restaurant, lounge and function rooms. The new menu has been devised by our Head Chef and offers a wide selection of freshly prepared dishes with all produce being sourced locally. Dishes range from traditional pub classics, steaks, fish dishes, daily specials, Sunday lunches, a freshly prepared children menu and not forgetting the Highwayman infamous Condemned Mans Meal.
