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

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 & 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?

When the sun goes down and the weekend approaches, our Academy venues come alive as a cool setting for your night. Whether you still need a caffeine fix or you want to indulge in our cocktails, fine wines or 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’.
