Easily the best beer pub in Norway. The only real disadvantage to it is that it doesn’t serve food. The ambience is great, like a real English local pub. The music is usually good, and never too loud. And the selection is the best in the country, and has been for at least a decade. I’ve spent many happy evenings here, and don’t think I’ve ever had a beer anywhere else in the city. I’m perfectly content that this should be so.

My local favourite! A pub for beer enthusiasts. If you are in for a excessively revelry, find another place! Great service and many among the staff are really knowledgeable about the beers they are serving. Beer from Nøgne Ø, Ægir, Haandbryggeriet, Lervig, Berentsens and many more on tap. Kinn Vestkyst IPA from cask - fantastic! (Visited October 22nd 2010)

Very nice place, british pub looks, very good service for norwegian standars and some of the staff actually knows about beer. Very wide selection, norwegian micros, international lagers, rare ales. The only down is the very high prices. Yes, is Norway, I know. But still. Worth the try, recommended

The best selection of beer in Norway with almost 500 different beers.The best part of cardinal,exept for the selection, is that the people behind the bar often know what they are talking about. They also change the beer that is on two of the taps. Usually different microbrew-beers like Nøgne Ø and Haandbryggeriet for example. My favorite place!

The Cardinal pub is by far the best beer pub in Stavanger, and most-likely one of the best in Norway (definitely better than any pub I’d been to in Oslo). In a land of Strongbow, Heineken, Guinness and Tou, this bar is not only much needed but a savior! With a bottle selection into the hundreds--and not just a long menu, all the beers are in stock--you may sit for the length of a beer just deciding what you’ll be drinking. The ambiance is great, but as somebody who is 23, just note that they don’t allow anybody under 24 in on the weekends; manager’s rule. They don’t follow this under-24 rule on slow days like monday, tuesday, wednesday, etc. I’ve definitely spent more than 30 US dollars on a single beer here too many times than I’d like to count, but it is Norway. Beer suggestions: Mikeller Beer Geek Breakfast; Nøgne Ø Dark Horizon; Nøgne Ø #100 Imperial IPA

fobar  (12) Søgne, Norway | October 21, 2009
English style interior and an impressing selection of bottled beers and plenty to choose from no tap. Well packed, even no a Wednesday evening. Nice, not to laud background music.

My regular pub and favourite place to go out. With 17 beers on tap and 388 beers altogether they have the greatest selection of beers in Norway by far. And they keep expanding their beer cellar. English pub interior over 2 floors. Tend to get really packed in the weekends. From time to time there are some casks in from Nøgne Ø and yesterday they even had a local brew - an unfiltered, unpasteurized bock from Lervig Aktiebryggeri.
