The Pheasantry at Royal Buldings, Victoria Road (formerly Sadler’s) is undergoing another major change

The popular Victoria Road bistro “The Pheasantry” appears to be undergoing a new make-over and re-branding .

The Pheasantry at Royal Buildings – was launched in September 2014  after an extensive refit and makeover of the premises formerly occupied by the well-remembered Penarth poulterers and fishmongers Sadler’s which closed in 2013.

The owners Ken and Janice Hannen retained the two original (and rare) Victorian tile-paintings of grouse and fish which were  incorporated in the decor of “The Pheasantry” – the name itself being a nod to the historic past of the premises.

The original wall-tiles of Sadlers were retained in the interior

Now it appears the premises are undergoing a further makeover to be turned into a Wine Lounge by Ty Gwin (Welsh for “Wine House”)  and  posters have been placed in the window advertising for staff for the new venture.

No opening date has yet been announced.

    Already two failures in just over a year !
    Cannot see another wine bar succeeding.

      It doesn’t say anything about The Pheasantry failing in the article so why are you assuming that is has? It just says it’s undergoing a makeover. You also imply that 2 wine bars have failed on this site; was there another bar that I can’t remember that has closed or are you referring to the butchers?

      how very british putting something down before its started…..Its a great site just needs to find its niche …Good luck to them I’ll be there!

  2. Good Luck to them 🙂

    What with the new “ETC” in the old Sugo building ….. Our very own “back room” pop up wine bar and now this it seems that the Station Approach end of town could be come a real viable destination for people to have a drink that isnt a restaurant or a pub.
    some might say its been tried but one location is an island and actually having a few spots near each other could be beneficial all round.
    anyone visiting the pagent rooms would now have options for pre show drinks… likewise if you were eating up town you could sprad your night around Penarth a touch

    all good stuff

    as with Etc …. look forward to seeing the end result
