July 2021: Cardiff is slowly coming out of its Covid-enforced hibernation, with bars filling up and businesses slowly putting the pieces back together after an undeniably tough time. The Welsh are nothing if not resilient, and the support and enthusiasm seen in the first flings of post-lockdown life are further testament to that. Unfortunately, the situation remains fragile and somewhat uncertain, meaning rules and regulations can change in the amount of time it takes to buy a beer at the Principality. We’ll keep this page as updated as we possibly can during these strangest of times.
