Located at the Bute Park corner of the Millennium Stadium, this is a rare central pub with not only a car park (courtesy of the hotel), but also Sky Sports and a grass garden, not obvious from street level.

It is a traditional pub, with a 1960's feel, and a massive focus on live music, with Sunday/Tuesday bands, Monday open mike, Wednesday Irish Folk, Thursdays student music, Fridays Celtic rock and a DJ on Saturdays.

The balcony seating overlooks the River Taff, with a largish garden below with park bench seating.

It is necessarily inundated by stadium visitors on match days, but is a very popular haunt for music lovers, with many 20-somethings ignoring most other pubs in preference to this one.

It still has a snug, with a stained glass window declaring this!

The pub is always open during Millennium stadium match days.
