The Discovery

The latest addition to the Croeso Pubs family. Established in the 1960s, our pub takes its name from the iconic ship that Captain Robert Scott sailed on his first expedition across the Antarctic – The Discovery.

Situated near the Captain Robert Scott memorial clock tower in Roath Park, The Discovery pub stands as a beacon of camaraderie and exploration. Our commitment to preserving history is reflected in our original 1960s layout. The Discovery offers a welcoming atmosphere where stories unfold, and memories are made.
