Wow a Cardiff restaurant that can cook steak!!
A decent gastropub is something that Cardiff lacks and badly needs to pick up its rather lacklustre dining options. I tried Y Cadno; that was awful. I tried the New Red Lion in Pendoylan; that was good but a bit far out and the cooking was not without its flaws. It was time to give this sister venue of the much praised Wood’s Brasserie a try in B&B renowned Pontcanna sitting just on the outskirts of the city centre. It’s in the Michelin guide, so it can’t be too bad I thought. Parking was a bit tricky (side streets only), as was getting a seat for 2 which is expected on a Saturday night at a place that doesn’t take bookings for small groups. We were about to leave and try out Jamie’s Italian in town when a seat just became available, and boy am I glad we stayed….
