The transformation will see a brand new Farrow & Ball colour palette introduced into the venue, alongside wall panelling and bespoke tiling. A new homely ‘snug’ section will be added to the bar featuring cosy Chesterfield seating. Additionally, there will be updates to the al fresco dining area. The pub will undergo a £317,000 investment spend into its refurbishment.

Situated on the outskirts of Cardiff, with views of the Severn Estuary, Ty Mawr (meaning ‘big house’) is a pub-restaurant with a ‘convivial village pub atmosphere’ and a contemporary restaurant menu, including British pub classics alongside items with a modern twist, such as home-made chicken and chorizo kebab with oven-baked garlic flatbread, crumbled feta cheese and pomegranate seed salad and seasoned fries, antipasti boards, and soy glazed salmon.

The pub serves a variety of cocktails, a premium lager range and a large selection of G&Ts.

Ty Mawr’s outdoor seating area allows guests to drink or dine alfresco, whilst the spacious and modern interior offers a relaxed dining experience. The new look is set to elevate the pub’s interior to suit all occasions, from ‘casual lunches to special celebrations’.

Ty Mawr is also home to a barn function suite, ideal for weddings, family gatherings or birthday celebration. The venue offers a comprehensive wedding package, and its event coordinators can tailor guests’ celebrations to requirements.

With over 1,600 pubs across England, Scotland and Wales, Marston’s sites range from traditional local pubs to family-friendly pub restaurants.

Matthew McCormack, General Manager of Ty Mawr, said, “We are so excited to announce that Ty Mawr will be receiving a refresh. We have invested over £317k into breathing new life into Ty Mawr. The pub is much loved by its regulars, and we can’t wait to welcome everybody back on 1st December.“

Ty Mawr closes for refurbishment on Monday 7th November and will reopen on Thursday 1st December.
