The Heathcock, Llandaff

You don't come to Llandaf, looking for gaming machines and pool tables do you?

So it probably comes as no surprise, to hear that the Heathcock is now a dining pub. The decoration is rather more restrained these days too, thankfully without being wishy-washy.

Mind you, I did spot the red triangle of Bass on the handpumps as we passed by today, and there is a bar.

Who knows? I might give it a proper try soon.

BrewDog Cardiff, Cardiff

Sigmund's well-selected points were amplified, this bitterly cold January day, by the pub's being barely less Icelandic in temperature than the outdoors.

I was hoping to find Nanny State on tap, but it was only available in cans. Still, it made a change, drinking in hat, coat and scarf. We only stayed for the one though, as our hands were turning blue without gloves.

Robin Hood Inn, Monmouth

We entered the mediaeval building, to be met by a slightly weary, late twentieth-century interior fitting. The heating was on though, and that cannot be taken for granted in these austere times.

Doom Bar and HPA snored quietly, while the few locals appeared to be drinking lager, this post-new-year lunchtime.

Who makes up playlists for pubs? We had 1970s American heavy metal, disco, Christmas carols from a cathedral, and all too loud for a very sparsely-populated pub. It seems to be happening more and more these days.

But it was cosy, friendly, and the food was fine.
