Please note


We like to think of our bars as the love children of a raw prohibition speakeasy fused with a stylish gin society.

Both of our bars are in the towns which helped inspire our name (Y Bont-faen and Pen-y-bont) and at both of them you’ll not only find our in-house distillery operations on display for all to see but also be able sample some of the freshest Bont Gin you’ll ever get your hands on. So come climb our stairs in Cowbridge or Bridgend and we’ll make it worth your while… but just a heads up: We don’t accept cash. Card is king!

  • We’re immensely proud to be Cowbridge’s first ever gin distillery and gin school, nestled above the hustle and bustle of Cowbridge High Street. Come climb our stairs and enjoy a drink whilst watching the hustle and bustle of our beautiful market town from the window… or why not join us for an afternoon at our gin school, where you’ll learn the history of gin and produce your own unique bottle to take home.

  • NC opened as a brand-new wine and cocktail bar in 2014 and helped as a catalyst in reshaping the Bridgend evening economy into what it is today. In 2019 the bar tweaked the drinks menu to focus more on gin… then in 2020 they allowed us to build and launch Bridgend’s first ever gin distillery. We’ve been their house gin ever since.
