Very delightful airy well lit clubhouse / restaurant, with stunning views of the Loughor estuary and Gower coast, as well as great views of some of the golf holes too, on a sunny day sitting on the balcony can be superb, does get windy so close to the sea, but superb place to sit and drink and chat away, the...

The restaurant is very inviting with stunning views across the estuary to Gower. However, the service was really slow. We sat with our empty appetizer plates still in front of us for half an hour. My sister had the fish cakes which were really good, I had the mushroom which was literally one rather small field mushroom with a very... More

Absolutely beautiful food could not fault it one bit. Service was fantastic and the lady who seems to be the restaurant manager is one of the best hostess we've seen. Will 100% be back and hope to make this a regular place to eat when we have some alone time without the kids.

We didn't book, but this wasn't an issue, we were served and treated well by friendly staff throughout our meal. Dinner was cooked perfectly and to a high standard.

We came for a family meal, 12 in all. Not the greatest night out I'm afraid. I had sea bass, which was good in itself, but the saute potatoes were undercooked and tasted unbelievably earthy. There were no dishes really suitable to a childs' palate, and no chicken of any sort on the menu. My partner and daughter both reluctantly... More

Take your coffee, or drink, onto the balcony, enjoy the views, maybe a golf club but you don't have to be a golfer. Ladies (& guys) try the Spa downstairs & indulge in lunch. Have eaten there on numerous occasions & have found the food to be inconsistent, the curry can be mild one week & hot the next.....but the... More

The food here is hit and miss. Of three visits over three weeks, two were lovely and one very, very, disappointing.

I visited here today with 4 friends, we sat in the restaurant, two of us ate from the set menu, I chose chickpea and butternut squash tagine, which was excellent, I have eaten here many times, mainly in the bar area, and always enjoy the food, which is well presented too. What I like about eating here is that you... More
