Front Room in Barry: Your New Favourite Hangout

Hey Barry folks and food lovers! There’s a brand-new spot in town that you absolutely need to check out—Front Room. This place is more than just another eatery; it’s a breath of fresh air for our community, and I’m over the moon about it!

Why You Absolutely Need to Hit Up Front Room

No Rules, Just Yum: Dave Wigley, the mastermind behind Front Room, is a former Michelin chef who knows his stuff. He’s thrown the rule book out the window and created pizzas that are anything but ordinary. From the ‘mega rita’ to the ‘proper ronnie’ and even the quirky ‘one with no cheeses,’ each pizza is a delightful surprise.

Local Love: Front Room is all about supporting the little guys. They use Wildfarmed flour for their pizzas, James Coffee from Herefordshire, and local brews from Flowerhorn (my personal fave!). This means every bite is not only fresh but also packed with local goodness.

Breakfast Bliss: Finding a good breakfast spot in Barry has been harder than winning the lottery. But guess what? Front Room has swooped in to save the day. Whether you’re craving a hearty breakfast or a lazy lunch, they’ve got it all. If you haven’t yet tried Dave’s famous bacon, you’re in for a treat.

Chill Vibes Only: The whole idea behind Front Room is to feel like you’re in, well, your front room. No giant pepper grinders or snooty vibes here. Just a cosy, inviting space where you can relax and enjoy great food. Pop in for a quick lunch, grab a coffee, or have a laid-back dinner with friends.

Doggo Approved: Oh, and did I mention it’s dog-friendly? Bring your furry friends along! My dog is a huge fan of their pizza crusts—seriously, he can't get enough. It’s the perfect spot for a casual outing with your four-legged pals.

The Dough That’ll Blow Your Mind

Now, let’s talk dough. This isn’t your average pizza base. Front Room uses flour milled from wildflowers, thanks to Wild Farms. It’s light, crisp, and doesn’t leave you feeling like you’ve eaten a brick. The unique flavor is a game-changer, and it’s all part of their commitment to fresh, independent ingredients. Pizza that's delicious and good for the planet. We tried the fried dough and dip, and let me tell you—it’s a game-changer. Words can’t do it justice. You’ve just got to try it for yourself. They also offer a cracking deal on a Wednesday - Pizza and a pint/ vino for £15.

Your New Go-To Spot

Front Room is all about creating a space Barry can be proud of. Dave Wigley’s passion for quality, affordable food shines through in every dish. It’s clear everything here is meaningful and thoughtfully chosen, making it a standout in Barry’s dining scene.

So, whether you’re a local or just passing through, make sure to visit Front Room at the Pumphouse near Goodsheds (where Alium used to be). They’re open Wednesday to Saturday from 9 am to 10 pm. Trust me, once you try it, you’ll be hooked.

Grab your mates, your dog, and head over to Front Room. It’s the newest and coolest spot in Barry, and you’re going to love it!
