Tel: 029 2022 5258

Ok, let me set my stall out from the start - this review is gonna be biased. It can't be anything but, after all this is the pub where I witnessed Scott Gibb's last minute try against England at Wembley in 1999, PLUS Gavin Henson's last minute kick against England in 2005. Read More...

Fat Cat - Café Bar

Grosvenor House, Greyfriars Road, Cardiff City Centre, CF10 3AD [Map]

Tel: 029 2022 8378

A plethora of swish new bars have opened on Greyfriars Road during the past few years. The Fat Cat is one such offering, located just opposite the New Theatre. The Fat Cat has a very upmarket look to it with plush seating, atmospheric lighting and even a few velvet drapes thrown in for good measure, but it still manages to maintain a relaxed feel about the place.

Flyhalf and Firkin - Queens Vaults

29 Westgate Street, Cardiff City Centre, CF10 1EH [Map]

Tel: 029 2064 0253

This is one of two pubs that the Firkin empire run in Cardiff. Prior to the 1999 Rugby World Cup it was very much run for the rugby fans among us. The walls used to drip with all manner of rugby memorabilia. My favourite of which was a small plaque containing around 12 teeth, all allegedly lost in a match between Wales and England in the sixties! Read More...

Greendown Inn Hotel, St Georges

Drope Road, St. Georges, Nr Cardiff, CF5 6EP [Map]

Tel: 01446 760310

I first started going to the Greendown a few years back. They do a cracking quiz night on a Saturday which I used to go to religiously. Things change and at some point or another I stopped going but the quiz has survived the years and, as far as I am aware, still goes on every Saturday. Read More...
