We went here for the first time to see a hip hop artist. They were very late, and while they didn't announce anything in the bar, they did update Facebook. The venue is quaint and intimate. The bar sells off brand drinks, so not overly expensive. The toilets are upstairs and I'm not sure there is a lift. There's a... More

Hadn't been to this place for a few years but always enjoyed it in the past. Glad to see it hasn't changed. Good outside area,staff were great & had the Pipes lager which went down a little too easily. Good DJ later in the night,good atmosphere. Won't leave it as long the next time.

Always something fun and amazing going on at gwdi, can get overcrowded easily though, and there ain't enough chairs and tables when you want to watch live music or an act. But it's a small venue and it gets a lot of charm for being so. Wouldn't be so unique. Outdoor area is always super chilled and relaxed, good beer... More

I live in Cardiff and this is one of my regular haunts. I love Gwdihw for its music, the people and the great drinks selection. The events team put together a varied and exciting programme from themed quizzes (like Northern Lingo Bingo) to chilled folk nights and madfun party nights heavy with funk, soul and disco. Check out the Super... More

Booked a covered outside space here for a small gathering of friends. I'd been before and knew it was a great alternative venue with friendly staff. They often have love music too. Great atmosphere, free on the door when we arrived and no charge to book the space (just a deposit that was put behind the bar). The venue also... More

Found this place on our last night in cardiff. Had live bands playing, all were really good. The atmosphere was good, friendly crowd. Bar staff were really busy but great friendly service from them both. Would recommend if you like something a little more than the usual chain pubs

My party had a mixture... More

Couldn't have been more happy with the garden and marquee set up to host our party, with plenty of seating and tables. The outdoor heaters were most useful even though it was June and the vibe was very relaxed. Perfect for a summers evening birthday and reasonable drinks prices.
