This is a good honest bar. No frills, no messing. Really friendly bar staff, so much so they were happy to put a Wales European Cup match on the TV for a visiting (UK) Cardiffian. One of three decent bars in CBTS, it's the one I seem to have found myself in the most.

Love this place. Spent far too much in here over the years, but don't regret it. Great music, pool tables and very cheap beers/cocktails. It's just a cool place.

The Shanty is...well...The Shanty. Cheap drinks. Good bar tenders and a very casual environment. Great for a quick round of pool too.

This is just a neighborhood bar. No food. They serve an honest drink for a fair price. Can't ask for better than that!
