More Information

Complete refurbishment planned

A significant refurbishment will transform the Rhydding’s into a craft-led but traditional student pub. Redecorations throughout will breathe a new lease of life into this pub.  Star Pubs & Bars investment will allow for all new flooring to be installed, new fixed seating, kitchen and bar upgrades, ‘instagrammable’ Beaverton beer and a full redecoration of the exterior of the pub.

Inside the pub will be revamped from top to bottom with an all-new look. Externally the new beer garden will appeal to the high volume of students in the area.

City centre location

The Rhydding’s is located in the suburb of Brynmill, Swansea. Brynmill is a suburb of Swansea. It lies about two miles to the west of the centre. It is a residential area, close to Swansea University. Many students choose to rent rooms here during term time. Aside from the student population, this is a fairly middle-class area. There are four other competitors in the area, so having the right offer is vital to attracting those and other locals.

Unmatched potential

The Rhydding’s is a well-known site in Swansea. The planned refurbishment and it’s local affiliation give the pub bags of potential. With new kitchen equipment, the pub will be able to provide a simple food offer as well as tap into the existing but growing local circuit for craft beers. The pubs décor will make it stand out and clearly signal the craft offering. Many of the competitor pubs serve craft but lack the vibe of the Rhydding’s. 103 internal and 52 external covers will set up the pub to be the best bar in the area. This is a pub business with great potential, all we’re missing is the right person to drive it forward.
