Not sure what to call this - a pub it certainly isn't. Drinking barn doesn't seem right either - Yard is probably a good name as it is some kind of open plan drinking space over two levels. It was desolate of a Sunday evening although will give them their due they did do a decent pint of Brains SA. The toilets are akin to some army barracks latrine (with mixed washing facilities - so the girls can't have a natter round the sinks without some hairy arse bloke earwigging.

Decent Brains city centre pub with an emphasis on food. Beer in fine condition, food was okay.

My previous visit to the 'Albert' was in the 1970s. What a transformation. I wasn't able to spend long here, as I needed to get a particular train home after my Christmas break. My visit was mostly spent trying to work out where everything used to be when it was the Albert. Certainly much of what we see now used to be the brewery. Still a bit of it downstairs on the way to the washrooms. I think I like this pub - the beer was well kept, and the staff friendly and efficient. But I think I will have to visit at least 3 more times to really make my mind up.

Brains bar/restaurant that is very handy for Cardiff Central station and opens reasonably early in the morning. The interior is long and fairly narrow, with 2 bars - 1 at the front and 1 further back beyond the open kitchen. The fixtures and fittings are modern. Look up in the gents toilets and you see hundreds of ladies' bottoms! After being hypnotised by this sight, you'll then struggle to find the exit door. The 3 beers on were Bitter, SA & Dark. The latter was very drinkable. Whilst it was very quiet on our visit yesterday morning, this one is worth a try.

I have to agree with the previous comments. It's a large modern bar in the centre, it serves Brains handpulled ales, but these were in plastic glasses. The live music was a plus however, and the place was friendly enough. Better than O'Neills and the other brand pubs across the road, but not a traditional choice if that is your bag.
