“Fabulous view, fabulous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Fresh, thoughtfully prepared food with pleasant service and an amazing view of the bay. Fantastic fish and chips, beautiful salads and fish cakes - which alway seem to have been eaten up - as always off the menu!
The place itself is clean although a bit tired.
A must visit for top notch pub lunch

“A wasted opportunity”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

It is in an excellent position, one of the few eating/drinking places right on the front of Swansea Bay & should be vibrant and constantly full. It isn't! It seems to close early each evening, and when we wanted a drink in the garden one sunny Sunday afternoon once again it was closed.
The food is OK when you can actually get there when the place is open, but don't bother to go out of your way as it may well be closed.

“Wonderful view, lovely food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We came twice for lunch recently. Some of the time it was raining ( as it has done so much this summer ) but when it cleared the views were wonderful. We very much enjoyed our meals, excellent food, great value, nice helpful staff who were very attentive and friendly. Busy both days, although a Monday and Tuesday lunchtime, pleasant atmosphere. I ate on both occasions the delicious goats cheese salad, my husband had a chicken curry the second time. He loved the fresh cut chips. Did I mention the great value ? Next time in Swansea we'll be back !

“Pleasant view, average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Ideally situated when strolling along to the Mumbles. Average pub food, but still worth a visit.

“Bravo! We'll come again!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Had a very enjoyable lunch with five friends yesterday - delicious fish,best I've had for a very long time. A very pleasant waitress and,of course the best view around here. Highly recommended.
The only reason for not giving 5 for food is that the menu was not as extensive as I had expected.
Recently had Sunday lunch there - very,very good!
