Set in a classic Victorian Town House, within a well hit 'six' of the county cricket ground, The Cricketers offers a great range of quality Welsh real ales from our sister company, Evan Evans Brewery. Chilled continental lagers, a great wine selection & a large soft drink range. We also offer free Wi-Fi. Our beer garden is the best in Cardiff, with plenty of seating and a real sun trap!
