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 evening food was excellent but 2 of us had the gnocchi and they weren’t what we expected they were more like pommes Macaire -potato cakes too stodgy but the beautiful young Summer veg in the dish made up for it Still one of our favourite places

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!

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.

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.

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
