Licenced Cafe Bar & Restaurant serving a good choice of hot, cold and Alcoholic Drinks.

The Red Lion was formally public house when built, but a cafe throughout seventies which was called the Corner House cafe. The building was built in 1923 and is still known as The Corner House at 1 Talbot Road, Port Talbot, SA13 1HN.

Since the old cafe closed it has been used as a public house with live music events. In April we took it over and had a vision of changing it in to an old style brass and bar. We started work on it in mid-April of 2015.

The main aim was to use reclaimed and antique furniture and decoration with the bar being made from reclaimed brick originally taken from an old wall inside the building in cooperated with local natural stone and railway sleepers to finish the bar top. The refurbishment took 7 months in all.


We pride ourselves on providing homemade good quality food at great prices throughout the day. We are open for Breakfast on Friday and Saturday from 10:00am, and we also provide Lunch and Weekend Evening Dining. In addition, we have a relaxed Bar Menu available throughout the Weekend providing lighter snacks. Our Takeaway Bar is a convenient option for Breakfast and Lunch on the go serving Breakfast Rolls, Fresh Baguettes, Salad Bowls and lots more.

All our Dishes are made from scratch on the premises using fresh ingredients which are locally sourced wherever possible.

We provide a Comfortable atmosphere suitable for any occasion with relaxed seating inside and two convenient outside areas. We have Parking for customers to the rear of the building and are ideally situated next to Port Talbot Parkway Train Station.

We are completely child and disabled friendly and have all the facilities to make your stay relaxed and enjoyable. We provide high chairs, baby changing facilities, disabled toilet facilities, wide door and walk way access.

At Taste we are always excited to work with Local Charities and get involved in Charity events whenever possible.

We hope to see you soon!
