An airy, large JDW in the city center, not far from the train station. The L-shaped bar had ten cask ales and some craft beers on tap. Polite service. We stay here for a few half from regional breweries. (Visited with Finn during a pub crawl in Cardiff 02.05.2017).

Another large Spoons. A bit worn.

Visited 11/04/17. This is a very large Wetherspoons, an easy walk up from the Bus drop off area and Station. It appears to have been an old Theatre with some of the upper stalls still in place. The service was good for this chain but the decor is pretty shabby and tired. There was only a small choice of Real Ales available on the day. Not the best of Wetherspoons but okay.

Visited on 28th October 2014. Huge Spoons a few minutes up the road from Central station. I’ve been in here a few times over the years and it gets packed on rugby days. It’s got masses of room, the decor is OK but looks a little tired. Beer range was decent enough but not as good as usual Spoons, did pick up a couple of new festival ticks. Prices good, service OK. Wouldn’t dash back but would probably look in!

Aside from being a converted theatre, this is a fairly standard JDW. Offers a few Welsh beers, but the range is not that extensive when compared with other pubs in the same company. Well located though.

2015-09-18. This is pretty much the best and worst of Wetherspoon’s all in one place. Huge bar, with a big busy open centre, slightly quieter side rooms, patio and smokers out front on a main road. I feel like I rushed through now (I basically had a quick drink and ran after my spot to meet Garthicus changed), looking at other reviews. I don’t think I fully appreciated the atmosphere. Very busy on a Friday afternoon during the Rugby World Cup. Decent number of taps and casks available but not much that interested me today, I ended up with a Brains SA Bitter. Would come back but I wouldn’t make a point of seeking it out.

Floor is up and down; lots of wood. Typical JDW refurbishment. Quite nice venue; good service. Not so many beer engines as some JDW spots. Panini and chips were quite good.

Large JDW pub next door to the bus station. Train station and main shopping street nearby. Some cask ales, but the selection could have been better in a pub of this size. The JDW food menu is quite extensive now, and the food here was okay.

Very popular JDW near the railway station. Decent selection plus a few nods to Welsh brewers (e.g. Celt Experience among the craft bottle selection). Good food with some Welsh selections as is standard in JDWs in these parts. I can see why this pub is so popular with the Cardiff faithful.
