The Cardiff Bay Wetherspoons is supposedly modelled architecturally to mimic the Welsh Assembly. I presume far more meaningful work goes on in the Mount Stewart than the Senedd. I am also told that it is very rare in that it is one of the few - if not the only - spoons with no carpet at all.
Service in the Stuart is usually quite slow, but it’s a busy place. The Cardiff Bay tourists take refuge from the brisk Bay breeze here, as do many of those who toil in the Bay. This two-storey pub boasts a large balcony with lots of seating space and even has telescopes to assist you in surveying the Bay. Watch the boats come and go over your lunchtime trio of San Miguels. You cannot, however, smoke on the balcony - in my mind a cardinal sin of the pub. I seriously cannot contain my rage at this fact, and will struggle not to reflect that in my beer garden ratings.
Moving on from that idiocy, they have recently put a few more tables just out front, which don’t come with any sort of view, but you can smoke. Selection wise we have our Spoons usual suspects. The views here are enough to make it worth a visit if you’re in the Bay, but there are certainly better haunts in the bay.
