Gastro Pub

Nestled in the Cardiff suburb of Pontcanna, The Conway is a traditional pub for today which has been warmly welcomed into the local community.

The Conway has a traditional bar, a living room style dining area & cosy fireside sofas. It’s a small venue so booking for dining, particularly at busy periods, is recommended. There is a covered outdoor area at the front, great for outside urban eating & drinking and anticipated to remain popular following recent restrictions. The blackboard menu offers classic pub favourites, daily specials and the chef’s own inspired dishes, whilst the bar serves a selection of guest ales & a great wine list that is available by the bottle & glass.
We close online bookings at the start of service, but please call if you wish to eat on the same day, we may well be able to find you a table.

Food is Served for Lunch Monday - Friday 12pm-2:30pm and Dinner 5pm - 9pm, Saturday 12pm-9:30pm and Sunday Lunch is served 12pm-6pm.

    We had a good time at the new Conway. The room looks great and child friendly (great kids menu). The food was good (the starters were very good) but the service was quite slow. We enjoyed our Father's Day outing but by the end the kids were struggling to stay quiet as we waited for food and deserts. I hope the staff get more help soon, because otherwise it's a good restaurant.

    Lovely location and very nice decor. Food was fantastic. Would have given 5 stars, but felt that the wait for food after ordering was a bit too long. Staff were friendly and drink and food choices were excellent.

    The staff couldn't be more helpful with my booking which had a few changes along the way. They were happy to send out a menu for one of our party to pre order. Menu is concise and high in quality. Steak night, with a choice of sirloin or ribeye steak with the trimmings and a glass of wine is unbelievably well priced at £17.50, exceptional value. Wine list is good. Staff were attentive and professional. Ambiance was laid back perfect for chatting with friends. Really enjoy visiting the Conway, have been several times and will continue to make it one my go to places in Pontcanna. Highly recommend!

    5 adults and a 3yr old had an early booking at 1630, cracking 6 table booth in the corner which allowed plenty of space for little one.. food was excellent.. the chicken and dauphinoise potatoes seem to go down very well.. little had the excellent value children's menu .. the Gorslas was in good knick and slide down very well..

    Wonderful menu options. Something for everyone. Portions perhaps a bit small, based on cost. perhaps a bit hardier portion Would have made 5*. Spaghetti Mussel dish had 4 mussels, but was Delicious just maybe a few more would have been more on par for cost.

    NO WHEELCHAIR ACCESS. The Conway is not what it was, sadly. Very average. Wheelchair access does not exist: it’s impossible to get up or down the tall step outside without help. This is unacceptable! My elderly husband nearly fell out as we exited - extremely distressing.

    Arrived for our table for dinner,which was booked for 19:30 and confirmed via text message the day before, only to be told the kitchen shut at 17:30 and they weren’t serving any food now. Why take the booking and confirm it if you can’t do it?!

    Service was amazing. We had Sunday lunch. Starters good. The beef for the main was too tough. The cheese board was perfect but the sticky toffee pudding had been over heated in the microwave and was hard in places.

    The atmosphere was great, food was tasty and service was good. It is very much a sit down slow pace restaurant, so don’t expect to get in and get out. You’ll spend a few hours but it’s very nice & relaxing. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
