Visiting Cardiff for the rugby I was staying with my elderly parents and thought we’d try here as I’d not been for some 45 years! We looked at the online menu and decided there were some good choices so booked a table at short notice...More

Very disappointed. Just two choices of meat and no other menu for kids. And to be fair what was served was below par for the £10 charge. Much better options available locally. Shame.

I will never be coming back. Bickering staff behind the bar, a lengthy wait for sub standard food and a very dirty table. You get better quality in a wetherspoons. Save your money and give this place s miss.
