Why we love it

Hungry students of Flora Street, thirsty young professionals of Hirwain Street, all you movers and shakers of Cathays Terrace. Behold! The Flora has once again flung open its doors after an extensive re-think (including an inside-and-out aesthetic overhaul, a thoroughly impressive reimagining of the food and drink offering, a sizey investment from the landlords and a new independent management team in the form of those easy going guys and gals at Ten Mill Lane). The results are mightily impressive.

Remember the rickety carvery station of old? Exiled to the deepest reaches of even the most ardent regular's memory-cave. Gone, too, are the Steptoe and Son seats, the Trotter's Trading Co tables, the reams of Queen Vic carpet and an ale selection that would have been old hat when "Party Seven" was still a thing. In their place, you'll find a brilliantly colourful, alternative-design led space, a solid collection of moreish cocktails and alcoholic creations, and feel good comfort food: locally-sourced, hand-made, best enjoyed with mates and a few schooners of good beer. It's something a little different to the Cathays norm, but where you'll still feel properly chilled during the day and thoroughly entertained as the evenings draw in. If you hadn't guessed, Team Wriggle are fans.

Hints of the old pub have been covertly retained, reclaimed and repurposed (exposed brick walls, irrepressibly solid bar stools and a proper hardwood bar), but the semi-psychedelic dreamscape murals on the far wall, liberal selection of board games and generally progressive ambiance leaves you in no doubts that The Flora is heading in a completely fresh direction (we're talking a pool table in the beer garden, outdoor loungers made from family-wagon seats and big-old-tunes curated by the brilliantly enthusiastic - and frankly very talented - bar staff). With pub quizzes, a solid selection of events and general shenanigans happening on most days - The Flora MK 2 has the makings of a Cathays classic. Check it!
