Humans of Grangetown: Episode 5

Legends Social Club

Social clubs once served as the heart of all socialising around the city, both all day long and come nightfall. While the scene has changed, meaning many have had to close down, Legends is still in business, as it has been for 19 years, forming popular entertainment in the area and known for being exclusive to Grangetown.

I’m a barman, so of course haven’t been here all this time, but the owner, Pete, has long enjoyed a positive reputation throughout Grangetown and Riverside. While the suburb has changed enormously, Legends has stayed the same. Even though lots of pubs in the local area are no longer up and running – with only Legends and Lyndon Social Clubs and The Cornwall really, we’ve been lucky to retain our regulars, which means you really get to know people. Many have been coming for years on end – they seem to like our general style, availability of drinks and the friendships made!

Our motto is ‘The place to be…’ and I think that’s true! Legends includes three pool tables, two snooker tables, two skittles alleys, darts boards and a variety of live Sky sports shown on HD screens – so it’s bound to have what you’re looking for! We also serve food, often with some savvy money-saving deals.


Outside of Legends in particular, the feel is changing – from new artwork popping up, to businesses forever moving nearby. But there’s still a community feel – my favourites are Pak the Halal butchers, and Delikatesy MS, a Polish supermarket and cafe, both round the corner. I think the future is set to mark more successful companies becoming well-established, and increased growth all-round. All in all, I’d describe Grangetown as multicultural, friendly and lovely!  It definitely deserves more attention.
