Dog freindly pub, but if you have a dog you are put in a side room, very cold in Nov and no atmosphere!. However the food was very good and beer and wine very nice. Wouldn't go back again soon as very nondescript.

This was avery pleasant place to stay. We were struck by the cheery staff also how busy it was on nights which elsewhere may well have been quiet. The bar itself was well stocked with beers wines and spirits and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere about it.

We stayed here for one night and found the welcome friendly. The room was nicely decorated (there was a very faint smell of damp in the bathroom). Good provision of tea/coffee and bathroom products. The breakfast was very good (lovely bread for toast). Smiling staff really make a positive difference!

Typical pub lunch in decent surroundings. This pub is in central Llandaff and has been refurbished by Brains Ltd in recent years. Pub lunch was fine if nothing to write home about. Just good value for money and happy service. Would visit again if in the area,

We spent Saturday night at this attractive pub with rooms. The managers and staff on duty were friendly, prompt and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. It is at the bottom of LLandaff high street and convenient for the Cathedral and local shops. Our elderly parents also stayed and the staff looked after them perfectly, they...

We were on our way to a seminar near Cardiff and wanted to make a long weekend of it so booked the Maltsters for Friday night to explore Cardiff during the day. Very convenient. As a real ale fan I was delighted to find a range of well kept ales and good food. We had a ground floor room that...

We stayed here for a weekend reunion with friends. Contemporary decor rooms - clean, well equipped and comfortable. Easy parking and friendly service. Breakfasts were fabulous (in our party we had the full range of the options on the menu) with excellent tea and coffee to start the day with as well.

Lovely little cosy pub/Resturant... Food is always delicious.. Perfect sun trap in the summer.. With a inside log burner in the winter 🔥🍷👌🏼 They let dogs in the causal part of the pub which is also great for dog lovers 🐶

Went for Sunday lunch & it was ok, just lacked something. Maltsters is a nice enough pub, family friendly, clean & the food is ok but it is part of chain and lacks that individuality that I think it is aiming for. Would go back but it's not a stand out place
