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.

    Dined on a Saturday night so was quite noisy as bar area with rowdy drinkers is right next to restaurant area.
    Waitress was great, very friendly & happy. Food was excellent, we really enjoyed what we chose.
    Plenty of drinks choice, if you like beers / ales & whiskey this is the place to go!
    Only downside was there is no front of house staff to seat you in restaurant area etc so gets a little confusing when you walk in & feel like you are in a bar.
    Had to ask bar staff regarding our booking.
    But overall we did enjoy & would return but maybe not on a Saturday night.

    All of us enjoyed our food. The beef blade was amazing. The mash could have been a little hotter but that is a minor gripe.

    Love this place. Fresh homemade cooking. Like the decor, especially the living plant walls. Favourites are the Smoked Haddock Fishcakes with a Poached Egg to Start and the Homemade Burgers are very tasty.
    Above all, the Staff are wonderful. Very friendly, approachable and great service
