Tasty, wholesome food for a special occasion. Fine wines accompany a good selection of homemade dishes. Would visit again.

A group of 14 had an excellent Christmas lunch and a well-lit but spaceous restaurant with an unfussy decor (it also has level flooring, making accessibility easy). The food (a choice of 3 items on each of the 3 courses) was very nicely-cooked, was well-presented and served with great efficiency (there was certainly no shortage of willing bodies in this...

Located in a quiet street. I had a stunning starter, my main was too salty and quite a mean portion without any veg, the dessert went back to 'stunning' again. The main portion I say was mean because 2 others got the same on the table and had a bigger portion. There wasn't consistency at all looking at everyone's meals.... More

However, on this occasion we left feeling a little disappointed with iour main courses. Wifey had salt marsh lamb, which was tough and could have been tesco value. Certainly not salt marsh standard, or if it was it... More

went out as a foursome, the couple with us are extremely discerning, they eat out a lot and spend a lot of time each year in france eating good food and wine, they thoroughly enjoyed themselves, they thought the food was terrific, their only gripe was about the red wine they selected, personally our white wine was terrific, all three...

We experienced a truly first class meal at the Pant y Gwydr on our last visit to Swansea, brilliant service and exceptional food. We eat out frequently in London and in France, and the Pant y Gwydr really takes some beating.

A total shambles. Restaurant overbooked, they gave away our table. Had to kick someone off their table to accommodate us. Food average, service very slow.

Really can't understand all the excellent reviews of this restaurant. After nearly an hours wait there was no sign of service, my Husband had to go to the bar to request that our order's be taken (goodness knows how long we would of waited otherwise). When our meals arrived, the Pate was served so cold that the flavours were impaired.... More
