This place used to be a great bar, however the new staff are incredibly rude and the drinks are massively overpriced, bad clientele with a lot of fights...not to mention the toilets are a disgrace. We won't be back

I often wonder what the point of Trip Advisor is sometimes...then anonymous idiots like yourself come along, hiding behind your "cool" profile TravelTimes18, suggesting that possibly you are some travel veteran, therefore its shocking to find we were your first, popping your cherry so to speak, either in 2018 or at the age of 18...? How strange it is that in all the years we've been stuck in this Trip Advisor prison of turn the other cheek, that not 1 but 2 reviews in succession pop up detailing a similar experience....Anyhow, I don't want to take cramp in my index fingers wasting time on you...Thank you for recognising our once mighty greatness, we apologise that you and your colleague Zebedru47 (not even sure how you make that one up?!) were the first 2 experts in your field to find our Staff rude or unpleasant and the fact that you can no longer stretch to our massively overpriced drinks (lets not mention the even more inflated drinks prices in your second review which make us look like Bargain Booze btw!). I am now away to a very dark corner to contemplate an eternity without you...Let us pray!

The Staffs awful reputation really does exceed itself. I'd recommend you avoid here unless you fancy yourself as Mike Tyson.

One of the anonymous Travel Experts....The awful reputation of the staff does exceed itself....hmmmm it would appear you are in the minority of 2....Having responded to another idiot who I am sure has absolutely no connection to you and your made up name with your 2 fake profile pictures, I have run out of energy to deal with this one...I am going to end with some adjusted lyrics to an old classic that if you sing to the tune will make it better...One knob at a time sweet jesus...

Never disappointed by the Cardan. Good service by friendly staff, good tasty food and reasonable prices. Surprisingly busy when we arrived about 3.30 and some music started at around 5pm with a young man and his guitar who were very easy listening and a pleasant surprise. Started getting busier again about 6pm. Great to see. Only issue - please get ladies and disabled toilets cleaned properly! Can’t comment on men’s.

Thank Eileen S
