The Tiny Rebel was our final stop in Cardiff on Wednesday afternoon before heading to the station. We had high hopes and had saved it until last. But, to be honest, I was very disappointed. The décor is very shabby chic and works quite well. But, what disappointed me most was the ale selection. Tiny Rebel beers were Hank, Dutty, Juicy & Lush. Guests were Pomona Island APA, Hop Shed Frizzle & Bristol Beer Factory Independence & Boca 45. There was not a dark beer in sight. With lots of cans and bottles in the fridges, the only dark beer was a £7 imperial stout, which I decided was too extravagant for the journey home. Ciders were Tiny Rebel Protaropia & Snail's Bank Orchard Dry. Nice staff and nice drinking environment. But, I agree with previous reviewers that the City Arms, just across the alley, is the better option.

Its not the most comfortable pub. I was lucky that the first beer I chose was nice clear and very drinkable. The wife went through four beers that were much less so. This recent trend for unfiltered beers means that half the beers are cloudy because they are supposed to be. But it does seem to be an excuse to serve other beers in poor condition. It was chucking it down outside and we had a seat so we stayed longer than we would have done in finer weather. We won't be going back.

A week away (Monday Afternoon).

Just across the road from the City Arms, ok but not really my cup of tea (or pint) as prefer traditional established beers. Usual range of Tiny Rebel beers plus guests.

OK, but would stay the other side of the road out of choice.

As zeitgeisty as they come as a purveyor of Tiny Rebel's wares - very much a brewery on the rise and multi-ward winning. Cardiff needs it too as there is a real proliferation of awful borderline nasty chain pubs in the city centre. Fubar and a 'tropical' beer both went down very well and the building is also stunning.

With Tiny Rebel being my current favourite UK based brewery I had to stop at their city centre outlet while I was in Cardiff for football.

7 ales and 3 ciders on cask & a further 10 ales and 1 cider on keg. Out of all of these 11 were from Tiny Rebel, add to this a large bottle selection from across the UK and you can immediately appreciate why this open plan tap house is so popular.

5.15pm when I arrived here and I managed to bag myself a stool at the bar. I’m unsure what type of drinking / clubbing establishment this place used to be but it’s been put into good use by Tiny Rebel. It’s trendy with a bohemian feel, the downstairs bar area is like a warehouse with exposed pumps and an aluminium floor, while the other room near the staircase is much more retro and has a completely different feel to it.

Loads of bar staff (in excess of a dozen) kept the drinks flowing while music played and the place filled up with a late afternoon / pre night crowd.

My cask and keg choices were Boho @ 5.0%, Fubar @ 4.4%, Straight Outta Sherwood @ 4.0% & Cali @ 5.6%, all of them perfectly kept and served, with Cali being the standout.

Even after my first visit I have decided that I love this place, the ales, the atmosphere, the chatter & banter it’s a very good place to kill a couple of hours.

Scores highly in my book.
