Uni Hall Bar

Posted by: Wen Ching In: United Kingdom|Western Food

Uni Hall Bar is a bar located in University Hall. The post is dated back to June when we decided to pay them a visit before the bar’s closed for summer.

Among all the university accommodations, University Hall is the furthest away from the Cardiff University and the city centre. It takes about 45 minutes by foot and 15 minutes by bus to travel to the university. Fortunately we were provided with free bus service throughout the study term so it’s not too inconvenient after all. A photo captured last winter when it was snowing.

We didn’t notice this park in University Hall before it snows, we were photo shooting in every corner of the accommodation when it was snowing.

Didn’t even realise how pretty it is until it snows.

This is the Uni Hall Bar, where it accommodates students’ needs to have their meals or simply have a drink without having to walk a distance to other places.

It was crowded with students on the day when we went.

The interior of the bar.

We had dinner with Isaac, one of our closest friends in University Hall. From the left, Isaac had a pint of lemonade (£1.40), I had a bottle of VK vodka (£1.80) while ys had a pint of Stella (£2.70). The VK vodka, which was a mixture of pineapple and grapefruit juice with vodka, tasted quite nice and refreshing.

Other than the mains, we ordered some plates to share. Priced at £1.65, we find this nachos with cheese and salsa rather delicious. Ever since our pleasant experience in the Coal Grill and Bar, we fell in love with nachos. We enjoyed the crispiness of the warm-melted-cheese-topped nachos while the salsa sauce added a kick of excitement to it. We also had a portion of chips for £1.

Isaac had a chicken burger and chips which was priced at £2.25. He claimed that the burger was a little dry, but other than that, it was fine.

Ys had a brains and steak pie and chips at £2.30 which he commented that the black pepper gravy was rather fragrant and delicious and the chunks of beef were soft and nice.

Priced at £2.25, I find this chicken wrap with chips and salsa quite a good order. Though the chicken strips were a little tiny, nevertheless it tasted quite good with cheese and salsa.

Uni Hall Bar gave feeling of coziness to us, nice and warm. It would definitely be a great place to chill out with friends. Will be missing this place.
