Perfectly situated in Cardiff city centre near St John’s Church, the Old Arcade is Cardiff’s premier rugby pub. Built in 1844 as the Birdcage Inn, the Old Arcade is at the heart of Welsh rugby in the capital city, a home from home for fans of our beloved game.
It's packed with International and Club memorabilia kindly donated by the Welsh Rugby Union as well as a host of exclusive shirts, shields, badges, programmes and press clippings. When you're there, you can also check out our feature timeline of Welsh rugby history from 1881 to present day and relive some of the best moments of the nation’s favourite game.
Plus, we’re giving you the chance to appear on our Wall of Fame. Simply visit us in your Welsh rugby jersey and buy a pint – we’ll take your picture and you can pin yourself on the wall!
And with a fantastic line-up of award winning Welsh beers from Brains, the Official Ale of the WRU, we are well equipped to deliver the definitive rugby experience. We look forward to seeing you soon.
