A sister pub to Aberthin’s Hare & Hounds, this gastropub on the fringes of Cardiff wins praise for its “always cheerful/funny” staff and dependable cooking, not to mention its “sublime” beers. It’s not a twee, traditional place – the aesthetic is stark and modern, with bare wooden floors and tables and white walls.

In one of Cardiff’s leafy ’burbs, this large pub (sibling to the Hare & Hounds at Aberthin) has acquired something of a foodie reputation with a listing from Michelin and a visit this year from the Observer’s Jay Rayner, who discerned a “pleasingly straightforward approach to the business of feeding people well” with “a touch of St John about it” too (“white, utilitarian spaces”, offal, ox heart, pickled walnuts, duck fat, etc). Our feedback remains quite limited, but very upbeat all-round.

Limited but enthusiastic feedback for this attractive pub in the heart of one of Cardiff’s leafy ’burbs. Without being unduly fancy, the menu’s far superior to most pub grub.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
