Pontypridd's Chain House to become waffle and cocktail bar

By Katie-Ann Gupwell

Pontypridd's popular Chain House venue is set to be transformed into a cocktail and waffle bar.

Back in 2018 the eatery opened its doors and proved very popular with locals and visitors alike, as it produced various delicious fine-dining dishes.

Since then it has opened and closed its doors, with FAB Burgers having more recently operated there.

During this time the original owners decided to launch a new venture offering a local Sunday lunch service.

But, during the summer, the restaurant suddenly closed its doors and FAB stopped trading at the premises.

Now it has been confirmed the premises will open its doors to customers once more, and will become known as the Sinner's Club.

A statement released on the Facebook page said: "We received the keys to the amazing Chain House in Pontypridd - meaning we are officially taking over. So, we'd like to introduce you to Sinner's Club at Chain House!

"At Sinner's Club, we are going to be specialising in all things waffles, coffee and cocktails - from indulgent desserts to delicious savoury options.

"Not only that, but almost every single item on our menu can also be made vegan friendly too.

"Plus we have some other big plans in the pipeline too for some amazing evenings in the run up to Christmas - so make sure you follow us to stay up to date with the latest news and information.

"We don't have a set opening date yet, as we have a lot to get sorted (as you can imagine) - so please bare with us over the next couple of weeks while we get organised and settle in.

"That's all for now, but you'll be hearing a lot more from us soon.

"We hope to see you all in the very near future."
