The Captain's Wife
Beach Road, Swanbridge, Penarth, South Glamorgan, CF64 5UG 029 2053 0066
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
The Captain's Wife was originally Sully House, a house originally owned by a captain. Legend has it that when his wife died, her body was kept in a box that was mistaken for treasure and stolen. A small fleet of fishing vessels were located at Swanbridge harbour and it is likely that that the row of cottages, that became the pub, were later the traditional homes of the local fishermen and their families.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal spring dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.

Right on the shore overlooking the waters of the Bristol Channel, The Captain's Wife has a good tale to tell. Pirates and smugglers visited Sully Island which can be reached (with care) from the pub during low tide.
There’s more to The Captain's Wife than just great food and drink.
