Didn't think much. Was OK. Food was OK. Beer not great. OK service but nothing like other reviews implied. 2 nights in Cardiff and not enjoyed either of the places I've eaten

Came in on a busy Thursday evening for drinks and also ordered 3 of the snacks from the menu. All nicely done and the salt and pepper battered mushrooms are very good

Called in for few drinks last Friday night before a show. The staff were very good and efficient and prices are reasonable enough. Its a bust pub and it does what it says on the tin. Worth a visit

Went to eat but was totally disappointed with the venue. The table was wet where it had supposedly been wiped down. The men u's were sticky and dirty. It seems there doesn't appear to be enough staff to keep the place clean or they just...More

A cold wet winters night was banished by the warm busy atmosphere here. Typical pub grub at prices and tastes to suit all pockets and dietary requirements. If you’re a sports fan particularly football have big screens showing live matches.

Description
We are a lively and friendly pub in Cardiff bay, offering great value for money and a great atmosphere. Our food menu offers up some fantastic deals on pub favourites as well as quick lunch time meals. We are open for breakfast every morning from 9am and alcohol is served from 10am. We serve a great selection of well kept cask ales for the more traditional tastes and also have an exciting cocktail menu with cocktail happy hour (2 for 1) running 5pm-8pm every day! We have 6 screens in the pub showing the best of Sky Sports and BT Sport all year round. If there's a game you want to watch just ask at the bar and the staff will be happy to put it on for you (just not during the rugby... We are in Wales!) We look forward to welcoming you in whether it be for a quick pint after work, a meal before a show, or a day of beer and sports.
