The independent pub group, Knife and Fork, have taken over The Boat House on Cog road and will return it to its former moniker, The Sully Inn after a short re-branding period.
The venue will be the group's sixth in all, having had success so far in the business, resulting in a 4.5 million turnover in 2019.
The Sully Inn will join The Discovery, Lakeside and Twenty Nine Park Place in Cardiff as the most recent acquisitions of the group, and has a lot to live up to, with both previously mentioned venues garnering plaudits from the likes of Michelin’s Eating Out in Pubs Guide and the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.
In a statement shared on social media, Knife and Fork say they aim to inject "traditional, community pub vibes into the heart of Sully".
The kitchen will be offering a menu combining the chef's inspiration, pub classics and similar items to other venues in the group.
Knife & Fork Food director, Sharon Noakes said of the acquisition: “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.”
The pub will reopen at 12pm on February 28th.
