Quinno _ left this review about The Andrew Buchan

GBG pre-emptive stop as it's a Rhymney pub I clocked as I walked by. Fairly bland layout but at these cheap prices I'm not complaining. Of note is the taxidermied stags head and the crowd-pleasing classic rock soundtrack. There are large plate glass windows, mainly used for observing the pretty female students walking past. Classic collection of local codgers;

"How's you doing then?"
"Well, I woke up again today so can't complain!"

Four Rhymney cask plus a guest (of sorts - Brodies). My pint of Hobby Horse was GBG standard (NBSS 3). You’re never going to rave about this one but it’s a tidy pub serving good quality cask at a very accessible price.
