A beautiful Grade II listed building, The Plymouth Arms near Cardiff has great views from its beer garden over the surrounding countryside, and to the imperious St Fagan’s Castle. Offering traditional British pub cuisine, the pub’s ornate stone walls and window frames are sure to impress. Interiorly, there is a duality of contemporary and classic, with a brick hearth and chunky oak beams, but also sleek and colourful furniture.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Plymouth Arms menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Plymouth Arms ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

At just 12 minutes’ driving into central Cardiff, The Plymouth Arms is a stunning country pub but close to the city.

    Always a good dining experience at the Plymouth Arms. Had a choice of tables, we chose to be near the window as it was a lovely day. Waiting staff very helpful and the food was delicious. Myself and my daughter had pizza which was lovely, nice crispy edges and plenty of topping. I would recommend dining here to anyone. Booking a table is a very good idea as it fills up inside and also in the beautiful garden area very quickly.

    Food was fine but booked a table and added a note saying please put us on an outside table as we had our dog with us ,we got there and note had been ignored so inside so not suitable lucky there was space outside but it was busy so what would have happened if it has been full

    Our first dining experience here and what a lovely one too! We were very impressed with the quality of the food. The menu was just right,enough choice but not overwhelming. The weekend treat menu represented such good value- £25 for three courses and a bottle of wine between two or a drinks alternative. We will definitely be returning soon.

    Always a good atmosphere in the Plymouth Arms,St Fagans.A welcoming log fire and very friendly and helpful staff made for a very pleasant experience for our party of six. The menu is fairly varied and choice of drinks excellent.The food was in good time, well presented and all agreed that their meals were very well cooked and very tasty. Overall a good evening and we will definitely return.
