user reviews of the Traders Tavern, Cardiff

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

The Traders Tavern looks like a bit of a dump from the outside and is not much better inside. It has a dingy and grubby feel. Nevertheless, it is a good place to try Bullmastiff ales. They had Son Of A Bitch & Top Dog Pale Ale on for our visit. Pleasingly for me, they had a couple of Gwynt y Ddraig ciders - Dabinett & Welsh Warrior. A bit too basic for my liking though.

A decent pint of Tomos Watkins was quaffed, well worth a look in 7/10

Cosy and old fashioned, walls covered in concert posters, a welcome change for not being a Brains pub. Worth seeking out if your visiting Cardiff but not on a match day, or a sunday when they are closed.

Traditional pub tucked away in a side street where the Chavs won't find it. Close to Cineworld so ideal for a post-film pint of Old Speckled Hen, and good food too. Has always been fairly quiet when I've been in here, so given previous reviewer's experience probably best avoided when there's a gig in the CIA.

This COULD be such a good pub. Great location for the Cardiff International Arena, nostalgic music posters everywhere, good seating, seats outside, clean interior. But then there's the drinks. Went here on evening of July 2 - only two bar staff and it was the night of a gig at the Arena. Waited 20 minutes to get served. Both real ales were off. Magners cider had run out. All that was left was Carling, one of those ghastly nitrokeg beers, and Guinness - which tasted odd. Won't be returning in a hurry.
