About Us

Welcome to The City Arms, a beer lovers paradise in the heart of Cardiff, where we treasure and savour everything to do with beer.
From sourcing, to caring for and then serving, we’re all for high quality, interesting and delicious ales and beers (and ciders!) straight from the cask, on tap and also in bottles. We celebrate beer in a fantastic traditional setting in the heart of Cardiff, where we hope you can discover what makes beer so brilliant, meet interesting people and indulge in great conversation.

Quirkily decorated with pump clips from popular brews, we have serves from all corners of the globe.  We have six continually changing guest beers from around the UK on top of our international selection. And we don’t only do draft.  Our impressive bottled selection is vast, and our expert bartenders will be more than happy to suggest a beer that you may like to try. If you can’t settle on one beer, sample a few with our third pint tapas beer special. Pop down for an after work drink, or make us your venue of choice for a rugby match; either way we’re sure you’ll love our relaxed atmosphere.

CASK MARQUE ACCREDITED

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!
