69-71 Romilly Crescent, Pontcanna [map]
We like a good pub sign - you don't see enough of them. This one, inevitably, features a painting of a romilly.
Sometimes The Photographer just snaps away surreptitiously, hoping no one takes any notice.
But he asked permission here as it was pretty quiet. This is the barmaid phoning the manager to check if it's OK.
Note limited selection of spirits behind the bar, offset by a sizeable display of Hamlet cigars. Curious.
The main action is by the handful of tables just as you come in. By 'action', we mean a couple of locals sitting around having a chat.
Round the other side of the bar and it's all pretty standard stuff. We'd like to know what's in that blue carrier bag though.
We quite like The Romilly but this could be any pub really, couldn't it?
Good size beer garden that actually features a bit of garden. There's even a bird bath in there - something that can't be said of enough pubs these days.
