Large pub close to The Millenium Stadium, heavily branded with Tiny Rebel paraphernalia, Trying for the modern post industrial look just slightly softened. Bright and reasonably comfortable, the service was a bit haphazard though. It lacked atmosphere for me and was slightly disappointing.
Visited in August 2016. A biased overview as it was my first place in Wales but I will try to remain objective. My first impression was that the place was bright and cozy. The place offered a number of Tiny Rebel products (which is no surprise) as well as guest breweries. The staff was friendly and offered good description of the beers. At the time of our visit, most people in the place seem to be regulars.
My go to bar for 3 years, staff are always great, heavy focus on Tiny Rebel (not suprisingly) both in beers and the decor. Always got TR core beers in and almost always got a special or 3 to choose from too. The range of guest beers seem to to have decreased recently, along with the name change from Urban Tap House to Tiny Rebel Cardiff. Food is always epic.
Visited on 28th October 2014. Nice building conversion in Cardiff beer central. Itís similar to Brewdog styling with the same minimal, industrial chic.
Had a great range of Tiny Rebel beers including a small batch brew plus a good guest list, picked up a Beavertown sour here too!. Service friendly, prices good.
Definitely one to visit.
The Welsh BrewDog (sorry), Urban Tap House is the great "storefront" of Tiny Rebel brewing. Located in a street (or in streets) well worth frequenting for craft beer in Cardiff (BrewDog down the street, a Brains pub just around the corner, Zero degrees etc), Urban Tap House is a must for any Norwegian craft beer enthusiast who loves Welsh craft beer (i.e. me). Modern as well as Victorian (or Edwardian?) the building itself is blood red, just like the Customs house down at the harbour while the decor and furnishings are quite modern. Great having those screens telling the customers what is on tap as well. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and keen to hear what you think about the beers.
Fun place thatís clearly gone through recent renovation. A wealth of Tiny Rebel beers on, including seasonals, as well as some curated bottles and macro taps. Tasty pub fare and kind staff. A place well worth patroning if youíre in Wales.
2015-09-17. Nice bar, it is a mix of modern and classic pub feel. Tap list is just okay today. Fairly spacious but likely swamped on game days (it was much busier on Friday night with the Rugby World Cup showing on two big screens). Mostly high top tables in the main bar. Quieter side room and and upstairs including a private function room. I liked the bar but the beers were fairly disappointing over. I even managed to get better Tiny Rebel beers elsewhere in town! Regardless, itís well worth a stop if you are in Cardiff.
