The Lansdowne in Cardiff sees locals pour through the doors thanks to the pub’s consistent food, warm hospitality and great-value drinks selection. In summer, the beer garden is thriving, whether guests are dancing at a beer festival, hanging out by the barbecue or simply sipping a pint of craft ale or beer.
Inside, mismatched furniture, retro prints and pub games contribute to the warm feel of the place. Peckish diners need only look towards the chalkboards, which list hearty dishes and specials including burgers, pizzas, sandwiches and classic homemade pub fare. The kitchen clan are well known for their juicy burgers – the burger with blue cheese and chicken and chorizo burger, both served with onion rings, proper chunky chips and salad, are hugely popular. Veggie meals are excellent too, with battered halloumi a firm favourite amongst diners. Staying true to its roots, there’s also a warming Sunday roast served every week – booking is highly recommended. All of this can be had at great value for money, safe in the knowledge that quality is never compromised.
Like any true traditional pub, four-legged friends are very much encouraged to join in the fun, as this is a place where everyone is most welcome.
