The Three Golden Cups
Southerndown, Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan CF32 0RW
If you're heading through Southerndown towards the mighty Dunraven Bay, then you can't miss the Cups. A charming-looking watering hole with decent pub nosh served in a modest dining area, a separate bar with pool table, live music and what can only be described as the mother of all beer gardens. In the summer, this place is rammed and rightly so– it's right by the beach. You'll find local summer music festivals here, lively barbecues, and, if you'd rather get merry than drive home, you can pitch up a tent and camp in the acre of land behind the pub. Now that's service.
