Pubs for lunch

I spent two very pleasurable days in the middle of July 2018 visiting the Pubs (short for Public Houses) in the Vale of Glamorgan (see location map below) that could provide suitable places for participants on my trips to stop for lunch (if so desired). Alternatively, participants can bring a packed-lunch themselves to consume at a convenient spot during the course of the trip.

I have listed below the pubs into two groups, those that are within close proximity to outcrops we will be seeing and secondly, those that are a little further away but still do-able. I provide links to the pubs social media sites wherever available.

I must say that I have not eaten at the majority of them, so I cannot, at this point in time, vouch for the quality and value for money of the food they serve.

Many of the pubs are extremely old (many hundreds of years old) and are therefore extremely characterful both on the outside and inside. I am sure all provide an enjoyable and worthwhile experience, especially for overseas visitors.
