This is a smaller Spoons than normal for a city centre but does have an upstairs area that I didn't look into. It's on their list of pubs up for sale but I didn't see any sale signs outside, possibly because it's leasehold. The downstairs area is a roughly square room with fairly typical furnishings. It was doing a fair trade on a Wednesday evening and the staff seemed to be working really well.
The bar has two sets of five hand pumps which had one unused, the JDW Trio Of Doom with Abbot and Doom Bore doubled up, two ciders, Glamorgan Welsh Pale and Hook Norton Old Hooky. I went for the Old Hooky (£2.25) which was in good nick.
For me the only thing that let this place down was the poor selection of beer but apart from that it was a pleasant and well run Spoons. It's miles better than their hideous Lloyds outlet nearby.

Two floored standard JDW at the base of an unispiring 60's block. Decently decorated and felt pretty welcoming on Saturday evening, no obvious chav elements. The upstairs room has a glass tile floor section to see downstairs, not one for those with queasy stomachs. My pint of Purity MOB was in excellent shape. Unlike the reviewer below, I’m inclined to say this is the possibly the best of the central Cardiff Wetherspoons, it’s a bit smaller and more homely than the Gatekeeper. Left satisfied, if somewhat lacking in notes. 7.5

The Central Bar is named after the Central Congregational Chapel that was built on this site in 1901.All the usual fixtures and fittings on show and although a two tiered pub found the place on the small side with an average cask selection. On reflection thought this one my least favourable Wetherspoons of the 8 I visited on my Cardiff weekend.
