For my wife's birthday we had decided a week ago that we'd go for lunch at the King's Arms at Pentyrch just outside Cardiff. I'd read a while back that although it is a Brains pub that Otley brewery had taken over the lease.
So bit of a surprise yesterday not five minutes after I'd rung and booked a table that Brew Wales blogged about their 'Grand opening' this weekend, with live music, BBQ and a beer festival.
Today they had the permanent pumps, Brains bitter and Otley 03, joined by guest beer Butcombe bitter.
The curry was really good, properly dry and perfectly cooked beef, my wife enjoyed her meal also, and we ordered a raspberry cheese cake with new season raspberry's, and chilli and something else compote, and this was excellent also.
Overall a good lunch, well worth checking this place out again if you know where it is. Good choices on the menu, reasonable priced for the quality your getting also, and good conditioned beers.
And chatting to the staff behind the bar today it sounds like, despite the weather, they are planning a great weekend so get there if you can.
p.s. Anyone know how i get rid of the wikio text below??
