Aqualung . left this review about The Butchers Arms

This is an original Brains pub as shown by the stained glass windows. It has a basic public bar and a rear lounge that I didn't venture into. The public bar is small and roughly square with two speakers on tripods at one side and a dart board. Two large TV screens were also present, one off and the other silent.
The bar has five hand pumps which had just Brains Dark & Bitter on. I went for the Dark (£2.85) which was probably the best pint of it I had on my Cardiff visit.
This is a real old school pub and if you visit Canton for the micropub opposite or the Crafty Devil bar then it's worth a look just to see what virtually all pubs used to be like.
