Proud Mary Cardiff unveils new menu with pub favourites

From hearty pub classics to innovative culinary creations, there's something for everyone to enjoy!

Proud Mary Cardiff

Nestled in the heart Cardiff, Proud Mary’s is not just pub; it’s a gastronomic adventure waiting to be explored.

Proud Mary Cardiff prides itself on offering a traditional pub with a modern ‘party’ twist, where you are guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome.

It probably isn’t the first place you’d think of when it comes to dining out. However, look a little further and you’ll see an eclectic blend of flavors and a commitment to quality ingredients, Proud Mary’s food menu offers something for everyone.

Operating over two floors, Proud Mary Cardiff has a capacity of 950 and has a number of seating areas, whether it’s just the two of you or you’re out with a group of friends. Our favourite spot to sit is right at the back on the high-rise seating area on the ground floor, near to the stage. It’s the perfect place to soak up the atmopshere of the bar, whilst having plenty of private space for you and your group.

There are a number of booths, which come with a bell for table service. As you can imagine, these are extremely popular and although they accept walk ins, we’d always recommend booking a table online to gurantee a seat.

From traditional gastro burger options to an array of pizzas to choose from, every dish tells a story of passion and creativity. The menu is full of pub favourites, including bar snacks, nachos and sharers, and sausage and mash.

The sides are the perfect place to start or to add a little something extra to the meal. You can choose from wedges, chicken tenders, garlic bread, giant onion rings, honey sausages or mozzarella sticks. You can even opt for spicy jalapenio poppers with deep-fried peppers and cream cheeese.

The chicken tenders were crisp and pulled apart easily (£6.45). They come as a trio coated in a southern fried crumb, so plenty of flavour. They’re not spicy, but they do come with a smoky BBQ sauace and sweet chilli dip for extra flavour.

The mozzarella sticks equally had a crispy breaded coating and came with chilli jam (£4.95). If you didn’t fancy a main, you could order a few of these and you’d be full. Perfect for snacking alongside one of the beers on offer at Proud Mary.

In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a good pint and a pizza and Proud Mary Cardiff didn’t disappoint. You can choose from either 12” or 2FT of pizza, £8 and £12 respectively. There are 10” Gluten free bases available on request as well. We ordered the hot pepperoni which was tongue-tingling and kicking with jalapenio peppers. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but it was absolutely massive and definitely one that you could share. The lighting doesn’t make the pizza look like much, but the cheesy was stretchy, the crust was crispsy, and was the perfect companion for our round of drinks.

Continuing the theme of great portion sizes was the scampi & chips (£8.25) from the pub classics section. It was really juicy with plenty of fish, unlike others we have had elsewhere. It comes with peas and fluffy chips – the best kind, which are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. As you can see from the photo, the portion amount was really something and offered great value.

They have recently launched a Sunday roast, only available on Sundays between 12pm and 5pm.

There is also a selection of indulgent desserts to choose from, if you still have room!

As well as great food, guests can expect live music at weekends, plenty of screens to watch live sport on and an extensive drinks menu.

Proud Mary Cardiff was the first Proud Mary Pub in the UK and is one of two in Wales with the second in Swansea, opening last year.

The Cardiff venue is open from 12 noon daily (closing 2am Sunday to Thursday and 3am Friday and Saturday).
