For top class beer brewed on site with a great atmosphere and service in a unique setting ... there is no better place to go than Pipes in Pontcanna. If you try nothing else new this summer you must try this place.

I went to the open bar last Saturday with my boyfriend. The sun was blazing, the beer was flowing and there was a cute market in the courtyard. I’ve been before and love the quirks of this place. Only way to improve this would be...More

Hi! Thanks for the review, just a little correction - we are open every Friday night and Saturday for pints and bottle sales. Apologies you don't like the Beetroot Berliner Weiss, it's a beetroot sour beer which can be quite an acquired taste, it has...More

If you like beer and you like people you'll LOVE Pipes! My favourite beers are the Indie Larger and Session IPA.
