The nationwide brewpub business has announced plans to open its eighteenth location, which is its first foray into Wales.
Set to open in Cardiff next month, Brewhouse & Kitchen Cardiff is the latest addition to the company’s countrywide portfolio, which has an annualised turnover of over £25m.
Following an extensive £550k refurbishment project, the new Cardiff site will open within the former premises of the Mochyn Du public house, just off Cathedral Road near Cardiff city centre.
The Cardiff launch follows recent 2017 openings for the ambitious brewpub group in Nottingham, Lichfield and Bournemouth.
The new Cardiff venue represents the first Welsh location for the brand, whose CEO Kris Gumbrell was born and bred in the Welsh capital.
Speaking about the launch of Brewhouse & Kitchen Cardiff, Kris said: “I’m a proud Welshman and grew up in Cardiff and so it has always been a long-held ambition of mine to open a location in Wales.
“We’ve been consistently searching for the right location and the right opportunity – we just had to wait until the right site came on the market – so when this pub became available on the outskirts of the city centre - we wasted no time.
“Renovations are well underway and we’re excited to open our doors in February and bring our Brewhouse & Kitchen concept to Cardiff and to Wales.”
The interiors of the brewpub have been overhauled in keeping with the Brewhouse & Kitchen style, featuring large barrel tables, bottle lights and an impressive copper microbrewery, which takes centre stage, alongside an open kitchen where patrons will be able to watch the chefs at work.
Like its other locations across the UK, Cardiff’s new brewpub will produce a range of its own unique craft beers, including four cask and three keg core beers, available throughout the year, and an additional four seasonally-changing kegs, plus an ever-changing brewer’s choice tap.
The location will also offer a range of on-site academy experiences, including a day-long ‘Brewery Experience Day’, a two hour ‘Beer Masterclass’ and a ‘Beer & Food Matching Experience’.
