The Ty Mawr
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Graig Road, Lisvane, Cardiff, CF14 0UF
This country pub boasts arguably the best views to be seen from any pub in the area. Set 20 minutes north of the city centre, The Ty Mawr is perched on the rolling hills near Lisvane. Peering out of the windows with a pint of Brains cask ale in hand, you can see across the whole city. The menu offers contemporary pub food, with some traditional comforts thrown in for good measure, and ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible. Tuck into a homemade rump steak burger with Stilton, apricot chutney and twice-cooked chips; a rabbit and root vegetable pie; or perhaps go for a lighter option such as the warm chicken salad with lemony new potatoes and tarragon. A huge lawned beer garden is great in the summer months, and on colder winter days you can cosy up inside by the roaring fire, sipping on something from the fantastic wine selection.
