About The Bunch of Grapes, Pontypridd

We like to think that “The Bunch” as we’re fondly referred to, is how a great pub should be, and we are proud to say the Good Pub Guide agree with us, naming us the 'Dining Pub of the Year' for the UK.

We are creators and passionate about what we do. We brew our own beers, bake fresh bread every morning and create unique inventive seasonal dishes, with an emphasis on locally sourced, sustainable and seasonally fresh ingredients.

We like to break the rules- you can grab a homemade burger and a craft beer in the bar or a fine wine and modern British cuisine whilst dining with friends in the restaurant- either way its your call.

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.

My family dine at the Bunch of Grapes quite often, though only in numbers between two and eight. When recommended to my employer, we decided to take out a major client for a festive lunch, twenty people on two large tables. The food was all delivered together, very quickly and hot. Tables managed perfectly. The food as always was first class, and offering quirky variation to the usual Christmas menu... Most of the guests had never been to the pub but all commented on how much they were impressed with the quality of the meal and experience.

We had an excellent time celebrating a special birthday on December 23rd. We were a party of 14 and everyone enjoyed their food. Many hadn't been before but are already looking forward to coming back. We love the variety and use of seasonal ingredients. Thank you Bunch of Grapes.

We had a great Christmas Eve dinner with all the family, again, for the third year in a row. The food is excellent and the service is fantastic. Thank you for looking after us.

I really wanted to like this place but unfortunately the service was incredibly slow and the food was not good. The steak was really fatty and chewy, the salted caramel ice cream was way too salty and one of the party members didn’t have all of the sides that they should have had on their plate. I think the food is expensive for a valleys pub and for the quality of the food and service. I don’t think I would come back here again.

The food was amazing but the staff really friendly and helpful. The room was cold as we were by a poorly fitted wooden door that led outside and the service took a very long time and as this was a work function this caused an issue as we were there for over 2 1/2 hours. The quality of the food meant the value for money was good. I love the food and the people so despite the temperature I would still eat here again but perhaps sit in the main building and make sure I do not need to return to work. :)

Quite limited menu for the restaurant, it seems a shame that the same range as that offered in the bar can't be offered in the restaurant.

As usual enjoyable atmosphere, phenomenal drinks and good food, although we were let down by service and for the first time we didn’t leave a tip. The girl that served us began with the response of “if you like” when I asked if we could order food and her attitude and stance was honestly shocking. Service was slow and we had to prompt and ask the whole way through. The best service as always was provided by the gentleman running the restaurant. If I had one piece of constructive criticism of the food is that the puddings don’t live up to the savoury menu both in composition and execution as well as no chocolate option which is unusual. For the price, quantity and taste we all decided against having a pudding again this time around as have been disappointed with each pudding ordered previously. That and the sausages and pie off the bar menu definitely should be with mash, the new pots aren’t the best match or in taste.
