Welcome/Croeso to The Gwaelod Inn

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 have recently been refurbished to a high specification.
Meaning 'foot of the mountain' (Gwaelod-y-Garth), the Gwaelod Inn was originally part of the Marquess of Bute's estate. Every window of this welcoming pub offers exceptional views - the pub was recently nominated as having the second best pub views in the country by the Guardian Magazine and has recently been awarded a Highly Commended Award from CAMRA. It is a much favoured watering hole for ramblers, cyclists and hang-gliders as well as some colourful locals. The Gwaelod-y-Garth Inn is situated on the Taff-Ely Ridgeway Path
