About Us

Stout, IPA, Amber Ale, Weiss beer, Rye beer, Pale Ale, Premium Bitter, Porter and Pilsner: if you like it, we’ll have it. Our extensive bottled beer range and 18 draught taps have an eclectic array of craft beers from all over the globe as well as serving the newest offerings from our experimental Brains Craft brewery and old favourites such as Barry Island IPA and Bragging Rights. Don’t love beer? Don’t worry! The world of beer appears a complex enigma but our friendly bar staff are here to guide you to your perfect craft beer, and fear not, we cater for you wine lovers too.

Originally built in 1830, the Cambrian Hotel was rebuilt in 1889. Named in honour of its historic brewing location and neighbouring "brewery tap", The Cambrian Tap celebrates top quality brewing and craft beer.

CASK MARQUE ACCREDITED

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!
