Handily located between two of Cardiff's biggest student areas, Roath and Cathays the George is a very lively pub.

The George is an example of Bass' new range of student pubs that are appearing all over the country at the moment. All the pubs follow the same layout, they are all painted in the same colour's and the building's exteriors are all done the same as well.

The chain's yellow card scheme is excellent(like a customer loyalty card) with special promotion's for cheap beer. On certain day' and certain times of the day the yellow card can be used to get your drinks considerably cheaper ... Read the complete review
