The Bunch of Grapes, popularly known as ‘The Bunch’ has played an important role in the social history of the market town of Pontypridd for over one hundred and sixty years. It was originally built to take advantage of the business oppurtunities presented by the proximity to the Glamorganshire Canal, and more importantly, the Brown Lenox chainworks, whose workers prodigious thirsts were legendary, after working in the extreme hear of the forges and furnaces, producing its world renowned chain cable.
As Pontypridd further developed the pub has played host to a myriad of other customers. It has evolved and adapted itself over the years, in order to meet new demands and challenges in response to customers’ ever changing aspirations and demands. In spite of this, it is still very much community focused, and attracts a loyal base of customers from the local neighbourhood and also the wider community.
