Called in to O'Neill's for lunch. We both had an all day breakfast which was delicious and served within 10 minutes of ordering the food. The atmosphere was good with decent music in the background.

We stayed at the Royal Hotel in Cardiff for 3 nights over the valentines period. Whilst there we visited O'Neils a few times but on every occasion wether we were eating or just having a drink the staff were always friendly and made you very welcome. On the Sunday evening they had a couple of men playing live music which... More

Called in for breakfast at 6 pm (as one does after a night out). Food was excellent. Piping hot and very tasty. Not at all greasy. Staff were helpful. Cost was just right. Very impressed.

Watched Wales play England at rugby in O'Neill's 11 Feb 17. Seating... Not enough to go round but that's to be expected on a England V Wales Six Nations night. The place was packed cheek to jowl, which made getting to the bar almost impossible. It was impossible to get drinks back to where we were gathered without drenching other... More

Visited O'Neill's for a bit of lunch and decided try the Chili off of the £5 menu. As the pub was busy the service time was not bad. When the meal came I was saddened by the size for the price. The Chili was served at a reasonable temperature (Not Piping hot) but it had almost no spice I was... More
