This place served a cracking pint of brains and homemade pie. Located in the heart of cardiff, ideal for a quick pint and lunchtime snack.

We arrived about 12:15 and were a little disconcerted to be faced with a totally empty pub. We decided to stay and were rewarded with an excellent Sunday lunch. A huge plate of tender meat loads of fresh veg and lashings of gravy. Thoroughly recommended....More

Carvery on the Sunday we were there was excellent, both in taste and value for money. Beer was excellent and the bar staff really friendly.

We visited Cardiff recently and enjoyed a pre-meal drink here. An old pub where you feel at home, the staff are friendly, the beer well kept ( according to my companion) and it's cheap too, at least by Southeast standards. We'd certainly visit again.

Never been in this pub until recently but it's as I expected , no airs and graces , a proper pub , great atmosphere and I love it . Toilets could do with a bit of TLC !
