The Heathcock, Llandaff, Cardiff

Here at the Heathcock, as at the Hare & Hounds, we serve good quality food and drinks in relaxed and informal surroundings.

Our pub is a thriving local watering hole that has been keeping locals’ thirst at bay for over 100 years. We still do exactly that, with great ales, interesting wines, homemade seasonal drinks and delicious bar snacks.

Alongside the bar, we offer a daily changing, seasonal menu in our dining rooms. Head Chef Dave was an integral part of the team at the Hare & Hounds since it opened, and offers his own style here at the Heathcock. We use the very best produce that the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff have to offer. We have some of the most productive soil in the UK, which gives us meat, vegetables and game of the highest quality. Our kitchen garden provides us with homegrown fruit and vegetables too.

Everything is made from scratch in our kitchen, from our own sourdough bread and cultured butter, to fresh pasta. This is not pretentious fine dining; its just about good food, whether you’ve been for a long walk with your dog or have got something to celebrate. We’re excited to bring our regional Welsh cooking to our Capital City.



Our menus all change twice a day with the seasons, and can be served in the bar or the dining room. Locality and seasonality is key, and the menu reflects the best of the day’s local produce. Sharing dishes are a big part of the joy of eating at the Heathcock, from pies, to slow cooked lamb shoulders or whole Welsh baked seabass. This is something that the whole table can get excited about.

Our menu has returned to our usual A la Carte, and we also now offer a tasting menu, take a look under events for more information, please note due to the nature of our kitchen we do not cater for vegan dietary requirements.

At lunch we are running our new small plates menu, whether you would like to have a small dish to yourself or share a bunch with friends; we have you covered! This menu runs Thursday – Saturday.

For December’s Festive Menu, please head to our ‘events’ page.
