“Discover the burger, our plank of pig or our simple home-made pie and a pint.”
We are now operating an online booking system at The Discovery, please book above.
We will always keep some tables in reserve, so it’s worth giving us a call if you can’t find what you are looking for.
We’re situated within walking distance of leafy Roath Park and offer somewhere you can relax with a drink or a meal in the large, airy bar or in the restaurant area. The formula follows that of our other pubs, with the regularly changing blackboard menu offering both pub classics as well as inspiringly unusual dishes, whilst the bar serves a selection of guest ales and a great wine list.
There is also a spacious, light and airy function room. Please contact us if you wish to enquire about booking this space. We also have plenty of availability for outside eating and drinking.
The Discovery closes all day Monday. The kitchen closes 2.30-5pm Tuesday to Friday and last orders for food on Sunday are at 5pm.
