This has now had a major refit, incorporating an in-house brewery (loads of copper fermenters, you know the stuff).

There's been a name change too. It's now Bragdy A Chegin, which my multilingual consort tells me means brewhouse and kitchen.

If you can manage "un pint cwrw os gwelwch yn dda" then you'll be very warmly received here. You will if you can't too.

There's a relic of the old name in the brewery's being called Black Pig, and there's more pub, less restaurant than previously.

The lead-(uranium maybe?)-glass tankards are comically heavy. Ask for a straight glass or take up training.

Overall I'd say it's a winner.

Sit in the garden-cum-forecourt and watch the world go by.

This is perhaps the most Welsh-speaking pub in the immediate area, and again is Brains-free.

Give it a go, it's friendly to all.

Not a bad place, eating area and a drinking area are 2 distinct parts of this pub.
Mainly Vale of Glamorgan beers were are kept in good nick. Sports memrobillia on the walls and sky sports, but not intrusive.

Nice atmosphere, quiet despite Sky sports. 4 beers, the Dakota Red was cold but tasted fine. Bit of a walk from town, but worth it, for a decent pint
