We like to think the Bunch of Grapes is how a great pub should be, a friendly welcoming bar serving award winning ales ciders and bottle beers in front of a roaring log fire with a restaurant attached that also serves award winning food. Using locally sourced seasonal produce with creativity and flair but without pretence.
A pub where you are likely to walk in to beer festival one day with a Welsh choir in full voice and return another to find a Welsh cheese and cider festival in the main bar.
Where you can enjoy a home made pie and mash in the bar with a pint of Welsh ale while cheering on the Welsh rugby and then return with friends to a fine dining meal in the restaurant with wines from around the world the next.
But if you prefer you can just sit in the corner, read your paper, enjoy your beer and be happy you have found us.
The restaurant and bar are now fully trimmed up for the festive season, looking very warm and wintery!
We’ve got Kitty, of Kitty’s Trio, joining us in the bar for her Christmas Show. Just her and her saxophone playing a setlist of traditional Christmas carols and modern Christmas songs with a Jazz flavour.
You can now find our entire range of speciality Gins, Rums, Vodkas, Single Malt Whiskies, Brandy and Armagnac online. Have them neat, with your favourite mixer or as an Apéritif or digestif! Click here to see the list.
