user reviews of the Glass Works, Cardiff

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

This pub has happily reverted to being called the Glassworks. It's a smartish city-centre venue these days, with some glass and steel, and high chairs. There's a dining area with normal seating too (if you get what I mean by normal).

Still, there were four or five cask ales on, and a wider selection of craft keg and lagers on offer. They'll mix you a cocktail too, if you can describe it, and agree on the definition, bless 'em.

Owing to the split levels, people watching can be specialised, to people's feet watching, which, I found, did make a change.

Copa was slightly more civilised than I had expected, having read the previous reviews. There are still 3 handpulls, of which only 1 had a beer - Greene King IPA Gold. Seeing we were a little disappointed, the barmaid reliably informed us that they were about to put a second ale on - Greene King IPA! We decided to stick with the Gold. The interior is nothing special and feels more a bar than a pub. The atmosphere was fine on a Saturday lunchtime.

Now called Copa. Some smart arses can be found around the salt lick early evenings after they've left their crappy office jobs for the day. All round, a rather threatening atmosphere. Go to Bar IsIt? up the street instead.

Sadly this former real ale mecca is no more, having been turned into a trendy bar called called Copa. They do have a good selection of interesting continental beers, but at over 2 for a half (they don't serve pints) it's hardly worth it.
