Cathays is on the edge of Cardiff’s city centre and is where the majority of students live. Among the Victorian terraced houses are many great pubs and bars which cater to both students and locals – here are the 10 best.
The Pen And Wig has managed to embrace its edge-of-city-centre location while still retaining a local pub feel. A good selection of ciders and ales can be found on tap, and this refurbished yet traditional pub also serves some tasty dishes. A range of board games can be rented. On the weekends there will usually be a live band playing. In their beer garden, blankets are provided for chilly nights.
