Food and drink
Welsh and French cuisine combine in fine style at Bully’s. The menu changes in accordance to what they can source locally but the guaranteed mainstays are Welsh beef and foie gras. The latter is something of a Bully’s tradition – you can even order a side of it for any dish you choose.
Not only do their frequent food changes demand frequent visits, they also make it difficult to recommend any particular dish. Their cheese board is a regular feature. Loaded with well chosen local cheeses (there are over 90 varieties of cheese currently being made in Wales), it’s the perfect conclusion to any Bully’s banquet.
Fun with a certain air of sophistication. People know they’re being fed something special and really get into the spirit of the experience. The slightly cluttered, quirky decor takes away any stuffiness that these establishments usually generate.
Very relaxed and friendly. The original proprietor clearly enjoys explaining the dishes, sometimes he’ll sit at your table and flamboyantly roll out the enticing combination of Welsh and French ingredients.
Like many of Cardiff’s great food spots, it’s in lovely leafy Pontcanna, just 15 minutes walk out of town.
The legendary cheese board is £9.50 and their famed local beef is £25. Wine starts at £16 a bottle.
Tables to book
If your party is over four then you’re likely to get one of the two booths. Rounded and well-cushioned, there’s a really indulgent feel about your whole experience before you even pick up your cutlery.
