Academy Coffee is a family owned group of speciality coffee shops with a euro cafe bar twist. Originating at The Pumphouse - Barry, Academy Coffee is growing with several venues across south Wales in Barry, Cardiff and Penarth.

Coming October 2020

Each venue has their own individual look and feel, from Victorian industrial brickwork to modern shipping containers, but all offering the same Academy high levels of food and drink quality and friendly hospitality.

Our cocktails in Academy Espresso Bar have always been extremely popular and we jumped at the chance of extending our cocktail menu in a dedicated cocktail bar. An added bonus is the fact that it’s on a rooftop – who doesn’t love a rooftop terrace? We are so excited to be part of the wonderful Goodsheds development where a community of businesses can work alongside each other, supporting our ventures and looking out for each other.

When the sun goes down and the weekend approaches, our Academy venues come alive as a cool evening setting for your night ahead. Whether you still need a caffeine fix or you want to indulge in our cocktails, fine wines or our beers the choice is yours! Spend your weekend evenings relaxing with a tailored range of delicious, thoughtfully crafted cocktails in our new, exclusive rooftop bar ‘297’.
