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.
Pubs close to the Outcrops:
The Star Inn, Wick
The Farmers Arms, St. Brides Major
The Plough and Harrow, Monknash
This pub is famous for being one of the most haunted buildings in Wales. Very popular
The Horsehoe, Marcross
The Old Swan, Llantwit Major
An old and very characterful pub
The White Hart, Llantwit Major
Pubs a little further from the Outcrops:
The Victoria, Sigingstone
The Red Lion, Pendoylan
A well-known gastro-pub serving award-winning food
The Bear Inn, Cowbridge
A famous and characterful pub in the beautiful village of Cowbridge
The Carne Arms, Llysworney
Other Pubs that I still need to check-out for suitability include The Bush Inn, St. Hilary and The Red Lion in Bonvilston. The other day when I visited the pubs the Bush Inn had closed for the afternoon as I got to it a little after 3pm and, the Blue Anchor in Aberthaw which is currently closed for renovation.
