So Kiwis bar in Cardiff.

Doing work in the city last night - taking a break - naturally you nip into a place where they are advertising 2 quid a pint - Order said pints - enjoy.

Come back 2 hours later cos they said it'll be 2 quid a pint till 8pm. Charge me 3 quid a pint - Query - oh the boss put the prices up from 6pm . . .theres a concert on don't you know, oh but your advertising till 8 - oh but the boss said - 6pm - it's 5:50pm. Queue that red face look from all the staff where they know I've caught them out in a big smelly lie.

Kiwis - you suck. You lie and you treat your customers with utter contempt. It appears you consider them utterly stupid. Your profiteering BS cost you a actual kiwi customer - I demanded my money back and left the bar that calls itself KIWIS - because apparently there a single NZ flag on the wall and they advertise a single NZ red wine and F**K ALL ELSE.

Also the band was FLAT - the singer couldnt sing, the horn player sounded like a strangled goose.

So Ambience - Zero
Beer - the pipes needed cleaning - 4
Service - ZERO
Lying to customers - give it a 2 as it was so badly done and by stupid people probably on minimum wage for a reason. If you are going to lie to the face of your customers, KIWIS at least make more of an effort than you did with the decor of the bar.

here's the thing - after briefly discussing with you - you you attempting to sell me more tat rather than address the dishonesty of your staff, much less the fact that you change you discount times to suit your apparent need for money - I will NEVER come back here.

When we visited this pub, we found it had about a dozen different local beers we had never heard off, and was a mixed pleasure as some were very good, others well best left alone. You don't know until you try. Busy but friendly staff, and nice surroundings to have a drink.

I visited on the 6 April 2018 for a drink before the game between Cardiff City and Wolverhampton Wanderers. Customer service from the staff was good however did not smile especially the security outside. The toilets were small and also dirty. The atmosphere is great with great music. I had a larger shandy it didn’t taste like it at all, all I could taste was larger. I wouldn’t rush back.

Always call in Kiwis for a drink when we are in Cardiff. Happy hour til 6pm so great value drinks, but still very reasonably priced after that. The atmosphere is good and you can always find someone to chat to. Always great music being played. The service is excellent too.
