An independent pub group from South Wales has announced plans to open a sixth venue in the coastal village of Sully.

Knife & Fork Food have acquired The Boat House and will be reopening as The Sully Inn on Friday February 28 following a rebrand.

This launch marks the latest stage in the regional pub group’s expansion programme, which in recent years has seen the launch of The Discovery in Lakeside and Twenty Nine Park Place in Cardiff City Centre.

The latest venue situated on Cog Road in the heart of Sully is currently undergoing a rebrand which will bring the pub in line with the rest of the group’s design aesthetic.

The menu will be overseen by the group’s senior chef Stefan Nilsson, an established figure in the industry who mastered his craft in some of Europe’s Michelin starred restaurants.

From the kitchen, the team will be serving up a menu which combines popular pub classics, the grill board and a variety of regularly changing chef- inspired dishes.

Local ales from Grey Trees and Vale of Glamorgan will also be introduced alongside a selection of craft beers.

Speaking about the launch of The Sully Inn, Sharon Noakes, Director of Knife & Fork Food, said: “We are always on the lookout for pubs in the heart of local communities.

"We want to be in amongst chimney pots, right in the soul of the village – and The Sully Inn offers just that.

“We hope previous and loyal Boat House customers continue to feel right at home there, but we also hope to attract visitors from further afield who may not yet have experienced a Knife & Fork Food pub before.

"This is a wonderful opportunity, and we’re very excited to start 2020 with the launch of our sixth location".
