...because the community matters
The obvious focus of eating and drinking in St Hilary is the Bush Inn, a historic 16th Century thatched roof pub with flagstone floors and inglenook fireplaces as well as exposed oak beams. A pub full of charm and atmosphere with very friendly staff. It was voted the AA Welsh Pub of the year 2008/9.
Just out of the village, left along the A48 are the Bryn Owain, a formula chain pub and the Mughal Emperor, a high quality Indian restaurant.
There is an all-day breakfast cafe, Hannah's Diner, which is just in front of the Mughal.
Aberthin has two pubs that both provide food: the Farmers Arms and the Hare and Hounds.
Cowbridge has a wide range of eating and drinking places, whilst there is an even wider choice further afield.
And there's a farmers' market in Cowbridge every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month.
Finally, there are details of some of the villagers' favourite places to shop for food and drink.
