Lunch: Mon - Fri 12pm-2.30pm
Supper: Mon - Sat: 6.30pm-9.30pm
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.

From Friday 14th to St. Patrick’s Day on Monday 17th we’ll be showcasing 5-6 alternative dark beers on the bar, for those on the dark side!
BLUE BEE BREWERY, SHEFFIELD
Lustin for Stout – 4.8%
Rich, complex with dominant roasted malt flavours
MILK STREET, FROME
Zig Zag Stout – 4.5%
Dark with hints of claret. Wood smoke on the nose, with a chocolate and coffee palate and just a hint of floral fruitiness. Creamy, with a dry finish.
SALTAIRE BREWERY, SHIPLEY
Triple Chocoholic – 4.8%
Cocoa, chocolate malt and chocolate syrup! Generous hops provide a balancing bitterness
BLAKEMERE BREWERY, CHESHIRE
Black Mamba – 4.0%
Although technically a ‘mild’, this falls into the darker end of the style. Bitter, creamy, but slightly less malty than a stout.
BURTON BRIDGE, BURTON-ON-TRENT
Damson Porter 4.5%
Dark brown porter infused with damson juices to smooth out the bitterness and add a little sweetness
BOX STEAM, WITSHIRE
Steam Porter – 4.4%
Smooth drinking, rounded porter with slightly smoky aroma. Roasted malts give way to chocolate undertones.
