Taffs Well Inn Cardiff

A complete refurbishment and redecoration will transform The Taffs Well Inn.

The Taffs Well Inn occupies a prime position at the heart of the village of Taffs Well, just three miles north of Cardiff. This ideal location lies on the Taffs Trail, popular with ramblers and cyclists alike. Situated close to the historical Castell Coch and the local rugby club, and with over 3100 adults living within a one-mile radius, the Taffs Well Inn provides the perfect setting for a pub that appeals to both tourists and locals. A complete refurbishment and redecoration of the Taffs Well Inn will offer a cosy,
welcoming atmosphere in the winter, complete with a brand-new log burner. An increased number of external covers in the enhanced beer garden will maintain the appeal into the warmer months. This is a pub with great potential, all we're missing is the right person to drive it forward. So, could that be you?
