The Salthouse now renamed the ship and castle as the drinking establishment was originally. (B4 lifeboat)

Good pint of london pride and the food is good. Tried the ribeye and like the chips and breadcrumbed blackpudding.

The ship has a top deck with nice rattan seating and is a pleasant on a sunny day. (View be better once harbour refurbishment is completed)

Has entertainment (artist)on fri/saturday.

Children not allowed on top decking.

Use quite often.

The Ship and Castle on the Square in Porthcawl has not long re-opened with a new owner. It has undergone a massive refurbishment and now has a new roof top terrace. My husband and I have been there on several occasions and the food is fantastic. We have also just called in for a drink and ended up staying all night as they had a singer on and the atmosphere was fab.
It is definitely one of the nicest atmospheres I have experienced in a very long time in Porthcawl

Only go here when Dan the bartender is working. He can mix you up a mean specialty cocktail. Great service! Please don't ever leave The Salthouse.

A nice range of dishes on the menu, good service and good food. A shame they are currently closed for refurbishment!

We visited shortly before Christmas only to be told that the Salthouse were not accepting the Taste card in December. This seems slighly churlish as it is limited to only two people anyway. After a short dicusssion over a pint, we decided to go ahead and eat there anyway as we had always previously enjoyed the food. We ordered in the almost empty restaurant (about 2 other tables were occupied) and settled down for a chat. We were then informed that the 2 rib-eye steaks we had ordered were not available. I cannot fathom how this occured as the other tables did not seem to have steak between them! We left.
Very disappointing from a place that we have always normally enjoyed.
