Delightful staff at reception but not so the bar. Very ordinary service from that section. Excellent service from the kitchen and we didn't have to wait.

Just another classic RSL that has lost its way and turned into a cash cow. Gone are the days when you go down the R’y for a cheap feed and a cheap schooner! Nothing sets this apart from any other RSL that is knocking out...More

Ordered the Coconut King Prawns, very disappointing. The curry was 'raw' and no hint of coconut. The prawns were definitely not a king prawn. My husband had the spaghetti marinara, dry and quite bland. For a seaside venue we expected more.....

In all honesty. I would not bother with Swansea RSL. It is very ordinary. Greasy, more than likely frozen seafood. Both my girlfriend and I said "never again".
