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.
Great service, a warm welcome, friendly staff, great food.
We've been going to the bunch of grapes for a while but this was a special occasion as our two young children came with us for their first time taste of 'real food'. They loved it, so did we. Great food as ever - special mention for the beef carpaccio and the smoked garlic gnocchi. And the usual combination of attentive and relaxed service. We will be back, again!
Always a great meal and the staff are excellent!!
Lovely food, great gin and a very relaxed atmosphere.
We had a superb meal as a large group for our daughter's graduation meal. Wonderful food with great service. Thank you x
Fantastic food and a lovely atmosphere. Perfect place to eat and relax.
Always excellent service and beautiful food everytime. Highly recommended!
Great food, really lovely restaurant and friendly staff. However really inattentive. We had to ask for menus, to order drinks and then food, the bill and then to pay the bill. We were basically just left to our own devices if we hadn't engaged the staff.
Excellent food. Prompt services ce. Particularly full and interesting vegetarian options will come again.
Food was very nice and service was attentive, long wait for food although we were not in a rush so it wasn't a problem. Brother in law had a few requests which were catered for. Will be visiting again, however due to prices it would have to be special occasion..
I booked a table for two as a treat for my partner and I based on the menu which looked amazing and this restaurants good reviews. The night didn’t get off to a great start then went from bad to worse. We ordered a bottle of Malbec from the wine menu and twenty minutes later were told they didn’t have any. Ordered different wine and eventually got wine a further ten minutes later (the water we ordered never materialised). The scallops we ordered for starters weren’t available, along with a few other items of the special ‘fish weekend’ menu. We had to order plan B. Starters arrived lukewarm, my soup was nice, my partners squid rings were challenging, tasteless, chewy rubber bands on a bed of flavourless salad. It didn’t even look appetising and he couldn’t eat it. I tried one and couldn’t eat it either. Main course arrived... the crackling on the pork belly was chewy and rubbery, the base was hard. My partners lamb was seriously undercooked, chewy with white unrendered fat. The risotto had the texture and appearance of mushy rice pudding. Both dishes were tasteless and we couldn’t finish them. We asked again for the water, paid the bill and left, very disappointed and still hungry. The waitering staff were fine but this is a case of a restaurant offering a fantastic menu which unfortunately they can not technically deliver. Such a shame.
Whilst we all enjoyed the food we felt the menu was a bit limited for our taste and the prices didn’t reflect our meals. In addition, the lady who served us was a little inattentive and a bit cheerless.
Can be a little slow on service, though very pleasant and helpful staff. Amazing food, though maybe a little overpriced for what it is. Would like to see more vegan options in the future.
Food is awesome, and the service is always relaxed and friendly.
Had a fabulous experience at bunch of grapes. We had a large booking for my husband's birthday and it went perfectly. Charlotte and Gareth were extremely helpful beforehand. On the day Charlotte couldn't do more for us. Food was lovely too. Excellent day and thank you xxx
Great lunch. Fab good and super service by the delightful Abbey. See you again
Outstanding food which never fails to deliver on quality.
Another lovely meal. See you again no doubt.
We always have such a lovely time at this pub. Perfect for date night!
Lovely steak and cod - starters not very warm - service good
Though I have only eaten here a few time, the food and service is excellent. Thoroughly recommended!
Quite evening food was good but no atmosphere
Been meaning to try meal here for some time and finally got round to it. Now we know what we've been missing. Really enjoyed some lovely food with great service. Will certainly be coming back for more. Thanks a Bunch (in a good way).
