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 selection of ales. Food was delicious and the sticky toffee pudding was amazing . Great service although food was a little slow to be served following order. Seemed a better atmosphere in the bar.

Organised 30th surprise lunch for my daughter. The staff were brilliant and food was delicious. The only criticism would be that the restaurant doesn't have a children's menu and the children had to have adult size portions!!

The food was delicious but we had a long wait!!! Out table was booked for 7. Arrived about 10 to 7 and shown to out table but it was 20 to 8 before our order was taken. Sorry but that's just too long a wait.

We booked a family party of 30 of us in the restaurant and I have to say the food and service were excellent. We were able to pre order the menu choices which helped with the organisation but also meant for a much smoother evening. Thankyou to all the staff for a fantastic night.

Two of our party of four had steak. Both of us found the steak chewy and tough. We ate it however and were asked whether we were happy with the meal by our waitress .We explained that we were not really satisfied with the quality. She said she would tell the chef. As we were asked again whether we enjoyed our meals when we paid, we mentioned the steaks to another member of staff. He also said he would tell the chef. There was no more action suggested which left us all feeling that our comments were not really taken seriously or dealt with in any way.

Lovely, friendly staff, it’s a little gem of a pub with great food. One down side, the toilets are not disabled friendly.

I have been dining here for many years and would always normally rate 5 star,this review was based on my last visit. The service when we first arrived was poor. We had soup to start which tasted watered down,and found that portion sizes are much smaller than normal,the creme brûlée couldn’t have been served in a smaller ramekin,and the chocolate brownies were more like stale pieces of chocolate cake. Value for money lastnight was very poor and it will take a lot for us to go back to dine there again.

What a superb pub. Superb beer, superb food and lovely staff. The food was just delicious and the wine to match. The only one thing I would say is that the lighting is very bright and was a little uncomfortable. Dim the lights and its a 10/10. However it won't stop us from coming back . Bloody lovely evening

Never been to this pub before, so I was pleasantly surprised when arriving. The staff were very helpful especially Gareth, the food was good, freshly cooked nothing looked or tasted microwaved. the surroundings are lovely, they have done a great job on the décor and creating the a warm cosy atmosphere. I would definately return and would consider going for a Sunday roast!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas Day lunch at The Bunch. It was a lovely menu and the staff/service excellent. The restaurant wasn’t over-filled and we weren’t rushed. This is our 2nd Christmas Day lunch and it certainly won’t be our last! Same again next year please!

Brilliant way to kick off the Christmas celebrations. Staff were very helpful and provided top service to all but a special thank you goes to Gareth who was excellent to communicate with before the event and was on hand for the whole evening! Would highly recommend! See you next Christmas (and no doubt before!). Rhea
