Having read some of the recent reviews I wondered what sort of evening we would have when 8 of us went on a Tuesday evening in mid August for a family celebration. I need not have worried. It was a fantastic evening. The service was excellent, the staff were friendly and welcoming and the food was superb. OK we had... More

i went to the gin festival with colleagues from work to celebrate a recent engagement. The gins and gin cocktails were epic and the band, fantastic! Staff are friendly and the restaurant is always busy with beautiful food. Love, love, love this place.

Whether you choose food from the bar or restaurant you shouldn't be disappointed in the quality (I haven't in 13 years). They have a regular pub quiz and if you follow them on social media you'll be kept up to date with various themed nights/weekends.

Booked a table for 6 for Sunday lunch and was surprised that the table was in the pub not the restaurant. From this point started the catalogue of errors. Drinks, we asked for a ginger beer, given a ginger ale! Bar staff did not know the difference and that there was ginger beer in the fridge. Asked were we waiting... More

Went with friends, booked on their web site which was very easy. Food was amazing, it all sounds very nice and its hard to choose what to go for. When the meal came the quality and tastes have been thought about as they all comliment each other. Can't wait to go again!

Have eaten here a few times over the last few years and always enjoyed. Last time was with the family a group of about 14- everyone enjoyed and not one bad meal or hiccup!

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.
