user reviews of the Lansdowne Hotel, Canton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

After visits to Crwys & Andrew Buchan in Roath (neither listed on here) and then a trip to the football ground, we moved to one of the closest decent pubs to the ground - the Lansdowne. There was a live singer in one room. We retreated to the other room. The pub was quieter than we had expected. Ales were Mantle Dark Heart, Brotherhood DDH, Cotleigh Dutch Courage & Wye Valley Butty Bach. The real cider was Lilley's Sunset. A good option if in the Canton area.

Yes, a fine, much-improved pub. Better-than-usual food, and a good, well-kept ale selection. Well appointed interior.

A short trip from the city centre towards the football ground and I have time to tick the Lansdowne in Canton.

This corner plot pub has been “gentrified” and has wooden flooring throughout with an attractive green painted wooden bar decorated with hops & a huge amount of beer pump clips on the ceiling of the bar. 3 rooms that have been opened up into a dining room / lounge area and a larger open plan bar with bench seating under the windows that face onto the main road.

On that bar are 5 hand pumps dedicated to ales and 1 for real cider. The choices are good and I opt for pints of Tudor Blorenge Pale Ale @ 3.8% & Wadworth’s Horizon @ 4.0% which were both very good and well kept.

With Cardiff City being at home the pub was busy just after 1.30pm with half the punters ordering and eating food. I ordered a plate of home cooked faggots, mash and mushy pies and it was very good. Served steaming hot and good value at just over £8.00.

All of the crowd here were locals and it’s obviously a good choice for pre match food and drink. A decent choices of ales, prompt service, nice décor, good home cooked food, all in all a decent pub and worthy of it’s place in the GBG.

Now known as The Lansdowne Pub. Former CAMRA real ale pub of the year. I've heard good things about the real cider, though haven't been myself yet. Must go soon.

Good selection of real ales according to their website.
