Enjoy a warm welcome at 'the pont'

Find us just outside Cardiff, and a short drive from the M4 and get ready for a greeting from our five foot high stuffed penguin...Ponty!

Get Involved
There is always something going on at the Pontygwindy. On Monday evenings we have our darts night, so why not come along and support your local teams whilst having a go on the oche yourself.
Having BT Sport, means that from Tuesday to Thursday you can watch the best of European football on our four massive screens. And don't forget to take a look at our drinks offers to help you cheer along your favourite side.

On a sunny day, why not watch the world go by in our lovely garden.  Though if the weather takes a turn for the worst there are plenty of high backed leather chairs and comfy sofas to pass the time.

Locally renowned for our charitable exploits and links to the local community you’ll generally find something fun happening at the Pontygwindy.

If it’s live music that tickles your ear buds, or a spot of karaoke, keep abreast of all exciting activity by following us on Twitter, or liking us on Facebook. Keep your eyes peeled for Sue’s News where our roving manageress provides us with posts from her ‘global’ journeys.


The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!
