This quirky little place on Westgate Street combines cosy pub tavern with industrial warehouse, with its wire mesh lanterns, huge silver pipes and slate flooring mixed in with comfy armchairs and warm wooden paneling.

This is the perfect pub for entertainment in Cardiff. Porter's is not just your average drinking den so don't expect your average boozy pint over a table top. Slosh your beers over board games instead, or rest your glass on a ping pong table as you thrash your friends. If that doesn't float your boat, don't worry, there's weekly comedy nights, gigs galore, film screenings, live sports and even a mini golf course outside for when you've exhausted all the indoor entertainment.
