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. Opening Times Monday - Thursday: 12-11pm - Meals Served: 12-9pm Friday & Saturday: 12-12 Midnight - Food Served: 12-9pm Sunday: 12-11pm - Meals Served: 12-5pm

“Amazing transformation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

I had heard there had been a refurb so decided to see what it was like. Very pleased I did, the decor and atmosphere is fantastic and the staff are very helpful and friendly. I was very impressed with the menu selection, we were a party of 6 and we all chose something different and we all enjoyed. My mussels were amazing and the fillet steak kebab was cooked to perfection and so tasty. This is definitely a great new find in Bridgend that I will most certainly be revisiting.

“Fab!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Went there for a meal Saturday evening, was a bit dubious because of hearsay but shouldn't have worried, the refurbishment has been done to a very good standard, the staff were very helpful and welcoming, the food well all I'm going to say is we will definitely going back, wide selection to suit all. We moved into the bar area after our food, very good atmosphere. They also do Sunday lunch with a choice of their full menu as well as roast dinners and this is served 12 til 5.

“Excellent standards”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

We booked the Caeffatri for a funeral wake. After visiting the newly refurbished premises and seeing the pleasant decor and new carpets, along with a private room we decided to book it. We were certainly not disappointed. Laura dealt with the booking and was extremely professional and sympathetic to our needs. When we arrived, the buffet was delicious and plentiful and catered for every dietary need, it was well laid out including the teas and coffees and even candles alight. We were able to bring our own background music which was an added touch to make the afternoon more special. Staff asked if we needed anything and unobtrusively monitored the buffet maintaining its presentation throughout. We were not pressured to leave at any time, and the whole afternoon passed smoothly which was a relief at such an emotional time. Laura even phoned next morning to check that we were happy with everything. The service and standard was fabulous and I wish Laura and her team well for the future.

“Buffet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Due to a family bereavement, we booked the Caeffatri for a buffet after the service and was not disappointed at all. When I booked it Laura the manager dealt with me and she was so friendly and helpful so thank you Laura. The buffet was fantastic with a great choice which suited all tastes, the staff very helpful and asked us on quite a few occasions if everything was alright and if we needed anything. Couldn't fault anything and we did take plates of food home with us - lovely!!

There are new owners there now and they have refurbished the inside of the pub (looks much better now) and they are about to change the menu, so I look forward to going and trying the meals. Thank you all again for a fab buffet and for looking after us so well - well done.
