Overlooking the intriguing ruins of an old monastery, The Castell Mynach near Cardiff delivers traditional British pub cuisine in a beautiful country atmosphere, but remains comfortably close to the city. The seasonally prepared food can be enjoyed in front of the cosy log fire, or al fresco from the beer garden with views of the monastery.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Castell Mynach menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Castell Mynach ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.
Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Customer reviews for The Castell Mynach
((*** 8 March 2016 by Helen from Cardiff
We have always been pleased but yesterday was disappointing. We waited almost 45 mins after starter for main meal. Not once were we asked if meal was ok. Wactress was very busy but that's not the customers fault.

((((* 22 August 2014 by Ian from Pontypridd
The food was excellent, and the two waitresses very helpful, but overloaded with work. Has asked for restaurant table, but ended up in the bar area, as earlier diners continued chatting after meal. Would suggest a Reservation notice in future, as we did not sit where we had expected to. Waitress apologised profusely, which diffused situation well, and we had a great evening.
