What a good choice that was. Everyone is so friendly and the staff go out of their way to be helpful. Pizzas are fantastic, (big, so... More

We were only in Swansea for one night, and our first two choices for dinner weren't open that night - thank goodness! This tavern has a lovely, friendly atmosphere, with a warm fire and cold beer. We were taken by the friendliness of the staff and patrons, but the real highlight was the food. I can honestly say that this... More

Good tasty pub food, good choice on bistro menu. I had curry of the day and asked for extra chilli on the side which was given, partner had pizza which was cooked in the pizza oven. Both very tasty. Staff very friendly. Good choice of drinks.

I didn't dine here but the bar is a 'good' example of a generic soul-less modern pub with a boring range of beers dominated by a television screen with nothing but sports. For those of you looking for an older style country pub in Swansea - it burnt down in 2004.

Huge range of yummy bakery goods, great bread and interesting museum. Staff all friendly and my only dislike was the claw machine thingy… I wish that wasn't there to get my kids nagging for money for more rubbish.
