NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

A nationwide lockdown is currently in place in Wales, and you are required by law to stay at home. However, hospitality venues can still provide takeaway and delivery services.

But please be aware that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.


At last we have the news that many have been waiting for, that we are now allowed to open back up our Hotel and Bar and we can’t wait to see all those home hair cuts and discuss that Tik Tok post…..
As you would expect your visit is going to be somewhat different to the last time you were here.
The health and safety of our staff and guests are paramount to all of us here at the Elephant & Castle and we have made significant changes to our operations in order that all our guests and customers feel safe and are relaxed in the knowledge that all possible measures have been put in place along with government guidance.
As we are only allowed to serve outside, we have opened up our beautiful Function Room garden & patio area and you have to book a table in advance
We will also be fitting a 60ft x 60ft marquee over the patio area with open sides for seating space if the weather is not sunny (pictures to follow)

Here are some of the changes in brief;
Book your table 01686 626271, contact details will be taken for the purpose of track & trace on arrival
Entrance to the garden will be through the wooden gates in car park
The car park will also be open
For the first few days we will be serving drinks only, gradually introducing food towards the end of the week and serving Sunday lunch (times & menu TBA)
You will be allocated a table and we will be taking orders by table service
Payment should preferably be made using a contactless card
Please use the hand sanitiser provided and be aware of the other guests around you.
Furniture will be arranged to comply with social distancing so please don’t move it
But most important of all …. enjoy yourself, looking forward to seeing you all again

About the Pub

Large Georgian coaching inn on banks of River Severn having benefitted from extensive refurbishment in recent years. This has partially recreated the places old multi roomed feel that was lost when Cains Brewery turned it open plan in the late 1990's. To the left of the entrance are comfy sofas, to the right is the main bar area with TV screens showing live sport. There is a separate dining area to the left of the main bar. There are usually two real ales on sometimes three. Brains Rev James and Three Tuns xxx often feature. The hotel reception is found at the very front to the left but is not always manned and bar staff cannot always see people waiting especially when busy. The river wall is located alongside and is popular on warm nights and afternoons with some benches as well, to the rear is a car park and further buildings. A riverside restaurant and hotel breakfast is found in one along with hotel rooms marketed as more upmarket Riverside Rooms and cheaper Bothy Rooms, the hotel rooms above the public bar have been recently refurbished. A large function room with own bar is also found at the rear – a favourite for weddings etc.
