You will find The Old Market Tavern in Cardiff within a short stroll of Adamsdown, Canton and Roath - however you won't find another like it.
Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.
The Old Market Tavern is thought to have been built in the 1600s – and its most famous landlord to date was probably Joe Holbrook, who also ran the local circus. When he died, a circus elephant named Lily reportedly drank a pint to his memory – and from then on wouldn't pass by without enjoying her daily tipple.
