Lots of good boozers have gone over the years, recent times have been particularly bad for Cardiff pubs shutting down, going to post some pics of some of these, a fair few were top notch in their day.
Duke of Clarence Canton, closed 2015, big city fans pub this was.

Was a fan of the Duke. Shame it went, proper back street boozer.

My grampy had his own spot in that pub - Jack's corner.

White Hart in James street, Docks, closed by the police in 2014 due to anti social behaviour, I always found it to be a good pub.

Kids these days dont drink as much as we did back then. If they did, these pubs would still be here.
