Beverley Hotel

Situated in Pontcanna, Beverley Hotel is a fabulous watering hole. Fronting ambient light fixtures, leather seating and a quaint beer garden, the venue slings out a wide range of drinks, alongside juicy burgers and BBQ pork bao buns.

The Eli Jenkins

Sometimes in life, you come across a boozer that's pretty much an all-rounder. And you know what? The Eli Jenkins fits that bracket. As it's home to a stellar beer garden, lots of sports screens and a cracking menu, you can see why it's one of the best Cardiff Bay pubs.

Porter's

Porter's isn't your average drinking den. Not only can you catch a whole host of exciting live music, comedy and cabaret, but also play board games and test your knowledge at weekly quiz nights. Even better? There are all kinds of luscious liquid libations up for grabs.
