Quinno _ left this review about The Captain's Wife

Looks a bit grubby and careworn from the outside when approached via the footpath. However the inside - via an attractive vaulted entrance - is a large multi-area'd place, presumably a number of old buildings knocked into one. Run by Vintage Inns so the usual pictures (a number of them depicting locally based things, which is a positive) and middle-class mum-at-Home Sense décor. I am assured that had the weather not been so terrible we would have had nice views from the front garden area across to Sully Island but sadly all we got was a grey rainy mist. Five pumps but just a double clipped and fairly insipid Doom Bar (NBSS 2) available. Well-staffed with motivated youngsters which was a bonus in these silly times of table service. The name is of interest, derives from a tale that it was long ago owned by a captain who kept his dead wife in a box – which was subsequently stolen when it was mistaken, perhaps understandably, for a treasure chest.

Pete Snelling left this review about The Captains Wife

The Captains Wife is well known in the small hamlet of Swanbridge and across Penarth as a fine country pub. we are an eerie, yet popular pub famous for great food. There is always a warm welcome with roaring log fires, freshly prepared food, a good selection of real ales and a wine menu for you to choose from.
