We had a wonderful visit to this pub, it is an old style pub and has a good choice of proper beers with typical pub's food. What is more, the prices are amazingly cheap!

Ideal position for a drink before visiting rugby,football or town.Friendly locals and bar staff cheap drinks and good food.Will be a big loss if a buyer turns this fine pub into flats!

Traditional meeting place before rugby at the Millennium Stadium or football at the Cardiff City Stadium or cricket at the SWALEC stadium - its about equidistant between all 3. Good atmosphere, good selection of beers and lagers and good pub food - all add up to a great pub

Good beer, very cheap, decent food and great atmopshere. In a weird spot being in between the centre and the cricket ground but well worth a visit if you are close by, staff very friendly and beer well taken of.

You know the sort of thing you see a few unsavoury characters smoking outside and peer into what you think is going to be a dive. Not here. This is a well run, clean pub with good range of alcohol and dependable pub grub. The homemade pie was lovely and I ate every scrap - full but i had to... More

Lovely to have a pint on international rugby day not to expensive and also having my pint in a glass not a plastic cup. Lovely.

Good location, a bit out of the bustle of Cardiff centre, nicely located the other side of the river and by Bute Park if you need a before or after pub stroll. The menu is pub fare that you would expect on a traditional pub selection, but of a good standard and generous portion. My favourite is the mega burger,... More
