Welcome to The Park

Situated on Park Crescent in the seaside town of Barry, we’re famous for our great range of cask ales. Whether it’s a pint of traditional ale from Brains, or a fine ale from some of Britain’s microbreweries, we will always have something to whet your taste buds!

We have a large upstairs function room which offers a great venue to hire for a special event or gathering – complete with a view of Barry and the Bristol Channel. This is also where we host regular live entertainment and local bands, perfect for a night out! If skittles is more your thing, get involved in our local team.

You can also catch all the live action from Sky Sports and BT Sport on our numerous screens, not forgetting our electric atmosphere on rugby days!


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!


Looking for a gift for that hard-to-buy-for friend or relative? With our Brains gift cards you can give them the perfect present. Load them up at the bar with the value of your choice* and let your friends and family enjoy food, drinks or even a night’s stay at a Brains Inn of their choice.

Or maybe you know a budding beer enthusiast who would like to add to their collection? Our very own Brains Craft Brewery cans and original Brains Beers are now available in gift packs. Cheers!
