Strange GMT Feeling Beano

Yellow rain warning, Yellow wind warning and sodden in the Malcolm Uphill. England lost in the Rugby, I got on the Penarth Flyer in the Sun. Head of Steam and Beelzebubs and the rain was back. Dorothy’s chip and it was rush to The City Arms to avoid getting sodden again. Early return home and there was minor flooding in Wood Street #Cardiff

Autumn (The Fall) hit’s the beautiful Lower Rhymney Valley with only the first day as an Indian Summer. Cardiff where only Wetherspoons have sensible opening times (says me). Ending up in The Head of Steam where the live Untappd feed is only upstairs now. Belgian low alcohol ales and it is as good as the full fat. Power and USB sockets all over. It didn’t rain.

The Not Quite a Pub Crawl – Part III

15/06/2019 Leave a comment

I have just noticed how many of my posts have “Not Quite” in the title and here’s another one. The plan is to finish off my Central Cardiff blogging but as I said last time, I fear it will need another one. And then there is the suburbs, busy times.

Cardiff Castle

The Gatekeeper Cardiff

Beer Pumps in The Gatekeeper, CardiffNot Ponty prices

Starting in The Gatekeeper (again), if for no other reason than the bar opens at 08:00. I was slightly late.

The Prince of Wales - Cardiff

It used to be a Porno Cinema

The classic Cardiff “Let’s have one here before we go on to ….” Pub. Note the Dragons on the roof.

And it filled up as I was sitting there drinking my bottle of Chimay Red with Elton John fans, having several before going to see him in The Cardiff City Stadium tonight.

The Cottage - Cardiff. A Brains Pub

Blackboard with the history of The Cottage

A row of Brains hand pumps in The Cottage, Cardiff.

Brains Bitter (light), weaker (tax) but fruitier than I remember. Great Barmaid here.

Beelzebubs - CardiffCricket, Football and Fine Cardiff brewed Craft Ales

Ex Small Bar, Beelzebubs is Crafty Devil’s main Cardiff Bar. Great Ales and superior WiFi.

Clean hands healthy beer. Works for me.

The Hopbunker - Cardiff

The Hopbunker – The best below ground Pub in Cardiff

It all turned into a Murky Saturday and it’s warmer underground.

And it’s all very walkable
