A paradise for beer drinkers, and with the largest whisky selection in Wales, Barley & Rye Bier Bar & Kitchen Cardiff also showcases Welsh delicacies made with seasonal local ingredients. An impressively large, stylish dining area filled with light woods and communal tables is downstairs, while outside there is a small al fresco seating area.

Premium European flavours sit are worked into Welsh recipes on the Barley and Rye Bier Bar & Kitchen menu. Creative starters include the Black Bomber Cheddar crème brûlée, and fresh seafood specialities feature options like paupiette of crab stuffed plaice with pickled mange tout and spinach gel. Crispy pork belly is wonderfully juicy, and comes with pig's cheek bonbon, and from the grill there are succulent steaks.

The Barley & Rye Bier Bar & Kitchen Cardiff drinks list features over 60 beers from around the world, including Welsh IPA, German lagers and British cask ales. Inventive desserts feature temptations like roasted peach and lemon thyme frangipane with honey ice cream, and on Sundays there are popular roasts.

Featuring a wonderfully inviting ambience and cosy wooden beer hall style touches, Barley & Rye Bier Bar & Kitchen Cardiff sits 7 minutes' walk from Cardiff Queen Street Rail Station.

    Very kind en swift service.
    Rather mediocre food.
    Tasteless steak and overdone duck's breast.
    Fancily presented on the plate but gastronomically very forgettable.

    Great experience from start to finish, staff are always friendly and the food is always outstanding. We love the combination of craft beer and a restaurant. Been twice now and received excellent service everytime. Always recommend to friends.

    Great beer and really great food.Best food I've had for years!Complimented chef on really good job
    Service professional and quick.Highly recommend
    Had venison faggott which was great followed by the pheasant which was superb followed by lemon posset which was divine!
    My wife had the haddock soufflé which was lovely but felt the main course of the pithier was just mushroom sauce with kale.Said it was ok and the pastry was good but a bit light on proper filling
    Apart from that had a great night and we will return!
