Woods Bar & Brasserie
Pilotage Building, Stuart Street, Cardiff, CF10 5BW
Woods Bar & Brasserie is one of Cardiff's busiest yet coolest dining hotspots. It offers a modern take on the French brasserie and is housed in one of the last remaining buildings of Butetown's shipping past. The bright and contemporary ground floor offers swathes of natural light, in contrast to the more intimate space upstairs which is ideal for private functions of up to 40 diners. Head chef Wesley Hammond supports his Welsh background by sourcing as much local Welsh produce as he can for his innovative à la carte and table d'hote menus. Try the ox three ways followed by Black Forest gateau with cherry popping candy - all at excellent prices for the quality and imagination delivered. There is an extensive wine list with a great by-the-glass choice, as well as a selection of fine wines, cocktails and a wide variety of teas, coffees and digestifs.
