Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Black Griffin

The Black Griffin may well be in a suburb of Cardiff and very close to the M4 motorway, but it has the feel of a village pub.

Bar staff were friendly. Although, they wanted us to download the Greene King app in order to place a drinks order, despite it being quiet. After going to the trouble of doing this, we found neither of the drinks we wanted were on the app, meaning the barmaid had to come over to take our order. It's very frustrating. But in fairness, many pubs have the same issue.

Three real ales were on - Greene King IPA, Morland Old Speckled Hen & Wye Valley Butty Bach, in addition to a real cider - Weston's Old Rosie.

The interior has a galleried dining area, which is quite appealing. Beware of the large step on exiting the gents' toilet. After a few Old Rosies, I could imagine a mishap occurring.

Despite the frustration with the app, this was my favourite pub of 6 in Cardiff.
