Aqualung . left this review about Ernest Willows (JD Wetherspoon)

Ernest Willow was some geezer who built an airship and flew it over his home town of Cardiff. He was subsequently killed in an air accident. It's only just outside the city centre roughly half a mile East of Queen Street Rail Station. It consists of a wide rectangular room with smaller areas either side of the bar. The decor involves lots of light coloured wood but the furnishings are fairly typical. The Gents toilets here are quite ornate. There was a mix of folk in on my Wednesday evening visit.
The bar has two sets of five hand pumps which had the JDW Trio Of Doom doubled up, a cider, Glamorgan Thunderbird & Jemima's Pitchfork and Boss Brave. I went for the Boss Brave (£2.05) which was in good condition.
This one seemed pretty reasonable to me.

This pub is cheap on a Monday and does serve good beer but unfortunatly a large section of it's trade is of people who are best avoided.
