Barry West End Club, Barry

Formerly a Labour leaning club but they saw the light and became a members social club. A selection of real ales which are kept very well by the steward. A range of bar snacks are available, hot and cold along with a good range of keg ales etc. Special real ale festival weekends are run a couple of time a year with entertainment included. Also regular music groups are engaged for the weekends which prove very popular. Forget any inhibitions you may have about members clubs, this place is different.

Castle Hotel, Barry

Agree with Blue Scrumpy. The Castle is now run by yet another holding company and is now only one bar. It seems, from the noise last weekend, that the pool table and juke box have been moved to the kitchen area. For a Saturday night a lot of the regulars were missing and as regards atmosphere there wasn't any. The quiz is still running thanks to the work of the Mel the quizmaster and if it ceases then the pub will surely die. A shame as it was a great pub. Things went downhill when the long standing tenant, Graham, moved to a Cardiff pub a few years ago and it has been run my management companies ever since. Was my local but now it is an occasional visit.

The Rose and Crown, Nether Stowey

Went there yesterday (Saturday) to find it closed. Apparently it was short notice and no one could tell me why other than it is advertising for a new operator to run it.
