181 Cowbridge Road East, Canton [map]
Before you even make it through the door of The Foresters, you're overwhelmed by entertainment options.
Sky Sport (just the one sport, mind), karaoke, disco, pool, darts… how much fun is it possible to have in a single pub? We're about to find out.
First things first though: lager.
A pleasing golden hue there, reassuring condensation on the glass, slightly foamy head but nothing to be overly concerned about, all speedily delivered.
But more importantly - how many sides does this bar have? A lot.
Hmmm, not sure that bloke facing us is entirely up for having his photo taken. Oh well, too late now.
No sign of the promised disco or karaoke, unfortunately. Although it is only 4.15pm - and even we're not ready to disco at that time of day.
One good thing about The Foresters is that they always put health and safety - if not spelling - first.
As billed, the back room does indeed feature both a dartboard and a pool table.
That said, how on earth did we manage to take an out-of-focus shot of a pool table? It's not as if it's going anywhere.
