The Royal George
This is ideal for pre-drinks or a “quiet” one. Every Friday is Craft and Cocktail night where all cocktails and craft beers are £3. Definitely the cheapest cocktails we’ve come across in Cardiff. They serve cheap and cheerful pub grub, making it a good choice if you fancy doing something to see in the weekend. They also have the odd bit of live music and other events so stay tuned.
