user reviews of the New Inn, Legges Way

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

A pub relocated, rebuilt and incorporated into the rather excellent Blists Hill Victorian museum. I was delighted to discover that it wasn't just "for show" but that it still very much functions as a pub within the site. More of a victorian "workmans" pub interior, with bare wood floors , wood panelling and devoid of the extensive tiling and glasswork that you see in some of the lavishly ornate city pubs.
However ,compared to those Victorian/Edwardian pubs that still exist in our towns and cities it was a unique experience to supp a nice pint of Banks's mild , with the smell of coal smoke from nearby steam engines in the air, a sing song at the piano being conducted in the adjacent bar (tap room?) and a carriage drawn by two shire horses visible in the street through the open doors.
Made me feel a bit better about the future of Cardiff's Vulcan pub which is currently being similarly rebuilt in the St. Fagans musuem, especially if , like the new Inn , it will still function as a real pub.
