There are two local student pubs on offer just a stone’s throw from Liberty Fields; The North Star and the Blackweir Tavern, which has lots of affordable drinks and meals for less than £10. The North Star is a cool and quirky place with good quality food and drink. Alternatively, the Uni Kitchen also has some tasty options for food. It’s run for students, by students – so you know they just ‘get’ whatever it is you want.
Another popular student area for bars, pubs, restaurants and takeaways is Cathays, only 10 minutes’ walk away from Liberty Fields.

Cardiff Student Union is around a 10 minute walk from Liberty Fields and hosts a range of nights for students.
