Thornhill (Welsh: Draenen Pen-y-Graig draen thorn + -en one + pen top + craig rock) is a suburb in the county of Cardiff, Wales, south of Caerphilly and north of the city of Cardiff. It is a modern area with plenty of new housing. Locally, there is a community centre, Sainsbury's supermarket and adjacent stores and also sports pitches. There are four pubs located in Thornhill:Pen Dragon Pub, Pentre Gwilym House as well as The Cottage and the Fynnon Wen. The Pen Dragon Pub has recently had a re-fit and re-opened in late November. The re-fit included installation of a longer bar and flat screen televsions for live sporting events.
