Traditional Cardiff Pub

The Heath stands proud like a ship on the corner of Whitchurch Road and Allensbank Road. Enjoy a warm welcome after a hard day’s work. Throughout the winter we light our real fires which make the perfect location for enjoying a pint of dark and chocolate cake on a Sunday evening.

Our traditional dining area is increasingly popular, and we have a growing reputation for our delicious food. Sunday’s are a speciality here at The Heath – with our chicken dinner accompanied by a perfectly poured Brains SA proving extremely popular! And at the bar there is plenty for you to enjoy too. We have a fridge full of drinks from all over the world. There is a wine – red, white, rose, or sparkling – for every occasion, from weekday business get together to weekend family getaways. Plus, why not take a closer look at our extensive spirit range to get your tongue tingling. On tap we feature our Brains Craft Brewery’s latest craft beer. Don’t know what to try? Our in house expert will be on hand to make a recommendation to you based on you normal tipple of choice.

We’re proud of our great atmosphere. So whether you want to watch BT Sports, meet up with friends on a match day, or get involved in our quiz nights, there truly is something for everyone.


The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!


Looking for a gift for that hard-to-buy-for friend or relative? With our Brains gift cards you can give them the perfect present. Load them up at the bar with the value of your choice* and let your friends and family enjoy food, drinks or even a night’s stay at a Brains Inn of their choice.

Or maybe you know a budding beer enthusiast who would like to add to their collection? Our very own Brains Craft Brewery cans and original Brains Beers are now available in gift packs. Cheers!
