Built in the 17th century, The Old Market Tavern is a bustling pub in the centre of Cardiff. On the menu is a range of traditional British flavours and cask ales, with live music events and pub quizzes drawing in people from all over the city.

Since Nicholson’s pubs were first established in 1873, these traditional British inns have become synonymous with warm hospitality, hearty pub food and a speciality range of ales. As well as always featuring British pub classics like beer-battered fish & chips and gammon & eggs, the Old Market Tavern menu is complemented by a rotating selection of pie, sausage & chop and fish specials for each season.

The Old Market Tavern bar is always stocked with exquisite gins, warming whiskies and fine wines to pair with favourite meals, and there’s always a superb range of seasonal and regional real ales on offer. A constant at the bar is the St Austell-brewed Nicholson’s Pale Ale, made with Cornish Maris Otter malts, and a hand-picked blend of English hops.

With a lively atmosphere thanks to the popular live music gigs, The Old Market Tavern sits 9 minutes' walk from Cardiff Central Rail Station.

    We arrived at the Old Market Tavern after there had been a Wales football game on T.V so the pub was quite messy and seemed totally disorganised, we felt booking a table was a waste of time as the bar staff said you can sit on one of those tables I'll wipe it down for you! The food was ok but nothing special and I think it was more a place to drink than eat in on a Friday night

    Everyone in our party of four enjoyed their meals. The mains were all fresh, hot and cooked well. The music being played wasn't too loud which allowed our party to be able to talk to each other without having to shout, which was very welcome and added to a good experience! Only two very slight niggles were we weren't offered sauces when the main were brought (and I forgot to ask!) so had to go chasing a staff member, and my dessert (Honeycomb Sundae) didn't appear to have any honeycomb in it, but I enjoyed it none the less. Overall, we were pleasantly surprised with the visit - good pub food at a very reasonable price point.

    Although it was match day and extremely busy the staff worked hard to make us feel welcome and the food arrived as quickly as it could.
