Visited the bar on bank holiday Sunday. The bay was packed as it was the harbour festival. We decided to go for a late lunch. Amongst our table we had two pies of the day, a lasagne, a sage and honey chicken and a smoked salmon baguette. The food was good home cooked pub grub. The barman who took our order was more interested in chatting to his friends behind the bar and looked a little hungover. The bar staff needed more supervision as they weren't quite sure who was next to be served and were busy chatting whilst serving.

Ate here on Saturday morning and the quality of the breakfast was good.

Was just a real shame that one breakfast arrived at our table of 5 about 15minutes before the rest meaning that one of us had to eat whilst the others watched with hungry bellies. Add on to that the fact that only half of our drinks order showed up and the whole thing just felt a little disorganised.

Would probably revisit in the hope that the disorganisation was a one off rather than a real issue

We had lunch here today (Aug 21) and thoroughly enjoyed some decent pub grub. The plates were full and the food was tasty. The service was quick and very friendly. The location is ideal for walking around Cardiff Bay - or if you want to stop here for a while, the beer is very good!

We waited an hour for food and it had obviously been kept warm for quite some time before being served. Awful. Wouldn't go back again. Wouldn't mind but it wasn't even busy.

Visited here last week for dinner. The meal was good - nothing spectacular, but it served its purpose. Love the atmosphere of the place. Service was a bit hit and miss, but it was busy downstairs and i think there were a few new members of staff being trained. Would recommend for a light lunch or even a few drinks.
