We ate here for dinner recently. The pub has a good range of beers and the wine list is okay. The food is decent enough but wasn't wow! Certainly not for the price. The pub is a bit noisy and it is difficult to hear...More

Went to this lovely pub in Pontypridd to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was a very busy Friday night with loads of people in the pub for a 50th party, but this didn't have any impact of the timing and quality of the food in...More

Came here with my 19 year old disabled son to meet some friends for a quick drink. The staff went above and beyond to provide us with a table which was both wheelchair-accessible and as autism-friendly as possible - they even served his drink in...More

Following a read of the article on BBC Wales for a selection of best pubs in 2017, we decided that for our anniversary we would try this pub. Having had a baby 7 months ago we decided that Sunday lunch would be the best option....More

Service was good but unfortunately my burger was served burnt and in a dry bun. The veggie option was ok, but not worth £15. There is no specific kids menu so I ordered them fish and chips to share. Tasty but very salty. Would be...More

I had always been intrigued by this pub, ever since I had seen the awards it had won, but had never had a chance to visit. That changed yesterday when the opportunity arose. Firstly, it is a unassuming looking pub from the outside that belies...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.
