Y Mochyn Du (the Black Pig) is a very Welsh pub/restaurant, located a stone's throw from the Sophia Gardens Sports Centre. It has great character, with wood panelling on stone walls and little alcoves.

The restaurant serves a good range of food, with specials and Sunday roasts.

It attracts a real mix of characters, from rugby and football players to BBC and S4C workers. They sponsor Robert Croft, captain of Glamorgan Cricket Team.

Live entertainment includes Welsh folk music, Welsh quizzes, and even opera. They support 3 Welsh choirs.
