We’re set for a weekend of sun! Don’t stay inside, get to one of these beer gardens in Cardiff.

Y Mochyn Du, Sophia Close, Cardiff CF11 9HW

Perfectly poised for chillin’ in Bute Park or Sophia Gardens, Y Mochyn Du has benches at the front and a beer garden out the back. It serves lovely food that doesn’t break the bank and stocks all the usual bevs that we love.


Peppermint, Mill Lane, Cardiff, CF10 1FL

If you love people watching, you’ll love grabbing a seat outside of Peppermint to watch Cardiff go by. Try to go during happy hour to save some pennies as this is the perfect spot for a post-shopping, pre-train ride, or pre-night out tipple. If cocktails are your thing, check out our happy hour guide


Juno Lounge, 14 Wellfield Road, Cardiff CF24 3PB

Ideal for Cathays and Roath residents, Juno Lounge has a rooftop terrace which is perfect for soaking up the rays in the sun with a bev in hand. Their menu is lush and they’re known for being great for gluten free.


Milgi, 213 City Road, Cardiff CF24 3JD

Milgi is a vegan and vegetarian haven in Cathays with an intimate garden which also hosts various events in a Teepee. If you’re a fan of something different, you’ll love this place.


The Pen and Wig, 1 Park Grove, Cardiff CF10 3BJ

A student favourite with a sun trap to enjoy the student priced drinks. Looks super cute in the evening as well, as the picture below shows. The food is also delish, so it’s the perfect place to waste a few hours in the sun without breaking the bank.


The Dock, Mermaid Quay, Stuart Street, Cardiff CF10 5BZ

This new Brains joint in Cardiff Bay is just fab. If it’s nippy, grab a table inside and enjoy views over the bay or, if you want to catch the rays, perch on one of their tables outside. It’s not a bad place to take your laptop and get some work done, either.


Keep exploring
