The Gwaelod-y-Garth Inn

Eating Out

The Gwaelod-y-Garth Inn (or just the Gwaelod as the locals call us) is one of South Wales' Premier Country Inns just a few miles outside Cardiff, offering a relaxing mix of Real Ales, Home Cooked Food and convivial company. Since Richie and Barbara took over the premises, it has re-established its rightful place in the heart of the community. The pub now also has an on-site brewery - Violet Cottage Brewery or “The Brew with a View” is brewing a selection of beers which are proving extremely popular Whether you are looking for somewhere for a quick pint after work, a quiet meal or a family celebration, we're sure you that you will find it here. Both the pub and restaurant are furnished to a high specification. The restaurant seats up to 60 diners, and a separate room seating 20 is available for private functions. Limited seating is also available in the downstairs bar. Click on the buttons below to see menus (prices are subject to change). Specials are also available on a daily basis. We were really excited to receive 4 stars from Visit Wales when we developed our 3 bedrooms.

As a small family business we pride ourselves on our hospitality and our commitment to providing our customers with high quality accommodation and an excellent breakfast. We enjoy a very high number of visitors who return regularly. The Gwaelod Inn is the perfect retreat from the city yet with easy access to road and rail links which make it perfect for business or leisure. Nestling cosily into the Garth Mountain, the Inn is surrounded by views of the forest, the Garth and the Taff Valley. It is an ideal base for walking, mountain biking, sightseeing and a delightful alternative base if you are working away from home. We keep a small library of books about the area and walks in our cosy bar. Our rooms have a separate entrance to the Inn, and it is just a couple of metres to the restaurant access where you will be served breakfast. There is parking available. We are known for our excellent food and have recently been awarded “highly acclaimed” by the South Wales Echo; why not take the opportunity to join us for lunch or dinner?
