Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Aneurin Bevan (JD Wetherspoon)

A branch of Wetherspoon's named after the man credited with setting up the NHS. I really should have visited this pub when I tried the Three Horseshoes just over the road the last time I was in Cardiff just over a year ago. However, I put things to right on this visit.

This branch of Wetherspoon's looks much more traditional than most from the outside, despite being surrounded by a very busy traffic interchange. Inside, it is much more recognisable as a 'spoon's, but does at least two clearly defined rooms.

Service was typical Wetherspoon's. With just one barman serving, I gave up after a few minutes, as I needed the toilet! I returned to find a few more bar staff, but many more thirsty punters. So, getting a beer took much longer than it should have. The usual ales were on - Greene King Abbot, Ruddles Best & Sharp's Doom Bar. Guests were Nottingham Centurion Porter, Thornbridge Jaipur, Woodforde's Nelson's & Cairngorm Nessie's Monster Mash, the latter being a feature of the chain's Burns Night celebrations and widely available across the country.

Unusually for Wetherspoon's, this one does have its own large car park with entrances/exits on either side of the roundabout. However, they do have those signs warning of large fines and prosecution that I'm always wary about. So, be careful if driving here. There is a large outdoor drinking patio nestled between the pub and the car park where you could probably inhale plenty of traffic fumes, should you desire to do so. However, large bushes do screen you from the passing vehicles.

As 'spoon's go, this one is ok. But I wouldn't rush back.

This one seems to have been an original pub called the Cross Inn, in fact the bus stop over the road is still called the Cross Inn. Unlike the previous reviewer I wasn't dodging traffic to get here but the weather in the form of hailstones and torrential rain.
Being an original suburban pub it has its own car park and fairly large paved patio.
Inside there is a fairly small L shaped room where the bar is with further areas at the back for food. It was quiet on my Thursday afternoon visit, hardly surprising given the weather.
The bar has just eight hand pumps where the JDW Trio Of Doom was doubled up leaving just the International Shepherd Neame Todd the Axeman and Greene King Fireside. I went for Todd the Axeman (£2.65) which was in great nick.
Admittedly I didn't come here on the best of days but it's quite a pleasant Spoons although the limited beer choice is a problem for me.

Travelled out to this pub from the centre of Cardiff by bus and was dropped off at a stop just after the pub. This was truely a stange site for a pub - it operates as a traffic island, as can be seen on the pictures which have been uploaded. There is an underpass towards the front of the pub, or you can play dodgems, as I did, with the traffic travelling in and out of Cardiff.

The pub itself is a very clean, almost unblemished, establishment where I enjoyed a pleasant pint of Sadlers Stumbling Badger.

On the way out and being under the influence I decided the underpass was the safest way off the island.
