A pub belonging to SA Brain has reopened after an extensive refurbishment. The Culverhouse, situated on the Western fringes of Cardiff has reopened as with a carvery restaurant, the first SA Brain pub to do so.
This 'roadhouse' style of pub was built in the late 1920s by Sir Percy Thomas, who is more famous for designing Swansea Guildhall than for designing pubs but in the 1920s and up until the 1950s his company built the Birchgrove and the Three Arches pubs in Cardiff as well as a few others.

Good to see a local brewery spending money and improving their pubs. Take note Pubcos!
