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 interesting menu. The cod was beautifully cooked with interesting accompaniments. Fine selection of beers and a clean, modern appearance.

    Delicious food (especially the pheasant and pate), excellent service, lovely atmosphere. Larger non-whisky spirits selection on the drinks menu would have been appreciated.
