Called here after a tour of the Otley Brewery. Good selection of ales, liked the Dark O while the Mrs opted for the rocket fuel O8. We had a warm welcome and a nice buffet was laid on for us. Well worth a return visit

Had to go to Pontypridd today for a funeral and came here beforehand. This is a very nice place (when you have managed to find it). Had a pint of excellent local cider and a lovely lunch. Prices are lower than I would expect in England. Excellent food all round and the range of beers is better than most pubs of this size. Also, this is a very friendly place: warm and welcoming. If I have to be back this way (I can't often get to Wales) then I will try to stop by here. 7/10

Such a shame we had so little time in this pub. The nature of my job means you can get a call anytime, and you've got to react to it, but the... 'Grapes' looked a lovely bolt-hole for the locals to escape the day. My pint of Timothy Taylor was better than we get back in our part of the world, and I was dying to try the Otley Dark... Maybe, another time? If you can make the effort to track it down, I would definitely recommend it for anyone wanting a homely pub with what seemed like a great pint or two!!

Not really sure why this pub has got such lukewarm reviews.
In a town where venturing out for a pint can be taking your life in your hands, the Bunch is a breath of fresh air for me. Friendly staff, nice locals, comfortable surroundings and award winning ales (Otleys O1 is truly fantastic), and I've not even started on the food yet.
The lunches in the Bunch are superb value. Expect to pay around 12 for 2 lunches with drinks (I've paid more for KFC). How they can make a profit on these given the quality ingredients they use, I really don't know. The evening menu is more expensive (14 for a main), but always fantastic and the considerable selection of specials always changing. My only criticisms of the Bunch are:
1. Bring back the sausage sandwich on the lunch menu
2. Lunches can be a little inconsistent. The kitchen B team sometimes used, it seems to me.
Oh, also a dog friendly pub, and a great place to watch the rugby.

One of three Otley owned pubs in the area.

Interior is not too bad, though the layout could be a little better.

Generally a good selection of ales - usually 2-3 otley beers plus 2 or so guest ales, all well kept, a couple of ciders on gravity and some continental beers in bottles.

Main letdown is the staff tend to be generally unfriendly, even if you are a regular - not sure if they prefer Welsh patrons to English.
