On the banks of the River Taff, in the semi-rural village of Taff’s Well, sits the heart-warming Swan Inn. The location means that this charming pub benefits from riverside views and green surrounds while still being conveniently close to Cardiff – something that appeals to visitors and regulars alike. The Swan Inn is a great place to visit for a leisurely drink, and the food comes highly recommended.
Head chef Gill Jenkins cooks an array of classic British dishes that are just like a hug – warm and comforting. Choose from the likes of steak and chips, and chicken curry served with chips or rice and naan bread, while vegetarians can opt for the homemade vegetable chilli or lasagne. Those in the know flock to the Swan for the Sunday roast, choosing roast lamb, chicken or pork with all the trimmings and homemade gravy. Tables quickly fill and so booking is advisable, although walk-ins are welcome. When you’ve finished dining, take your tipple outside and look at the glorious views of the surrounding greenery and woodland situated opposite the pub’s patio area.
Besides the food and drink, there’s a lot to keep you entertained. Karaoke is hugely popular at the weekend and the new dartboard is proving a hit with locals, making the venue all the more fun, too. If you like what you see and are on the hunt for somewhere to host your special occasion, the team can cater for parties from eight to 16 people – just ask a member of the team for details.
