Decent selection of ales. When I was in there last the rev James original and rye lines were cleaned 3+ times. It sounds silly but a line that clean really makes a difference. You notice the lovely granuler nature of the ale. Very friendly locals...More

Found this friendly local just 10 minutes walk from the Holiday Inn Cardiff (North). Local beers including craft ales 👍 and good pub food. Oliver was particularly helpful and welcoming. Comfortable and clean with a good mix of locals, what more could you want.
