There is a local pub called the Cefn Mably Arms. It first opened in 1824.
The community is bounded by the Rhymney River to the west, the A48(M) motorway to the south, and the Pound Hill road to the north and east. It contains Michaelston itself as well as a small cluster of houses known as Michaelstone Bridge about a mile to the north.
