The site which had been closed for several months was bought by experienced local operator Andrew Aston, who was previously the head chef of Woods Brasserie and more recently the tenant at the Kings Arms in Pentyrch.
The property, which can cater for around 60 diners, has several period features including exposed beams and a stone fireplace with a wood burning stove.
John Coggins, Business Agent at Christie & Co’s Cardiff office who handled the sale comments, “I’m delighted that we’ve been able to secure a new leaseholder for this property with the pedigree and excellent local reputation of Andrew Aston.
“With its prime location near to the major retailers at Culverhouse Cross as well as several new residential developments, the site attracted a high level of interest from potential buyers all over the UK.
“I’m confident that with the recent rebrand as The Longhouse under Andy’s ownership, the premises will return to the food map of Cardiff and he’ll go on to achieve even further successes.”
