The good pub guide review

Sitting out at a picnic table on the raised decked area with marvellous views over the Loughor estuary, it's easy to see why this family-run 18th-c pub on the winsome north coast of the Gower Peninsula fills up so quickly. In addition to the idyllic location, appealing outside space and lovely nearby walks, there's the refurbished beamed bar with a woodburning stove and plenty of space to enjoy a well kept pint ' there's Gower Gold, Sharps Doom Bar and Wye Valley HPA on handpump. Also, several wines by the glass and friendly staff; background music, darts, TV and board games. The beamed restaurant ' where seafood is an understandably important element, given the proximity of the beautiful coast ' has attractive modern wooden tables and chairs on a striped carpet, paintings on exposed stone walls and another woodburning stove. There's a children's play area outside.

The good pub guide food review

The good food is very popular and includes sandwiches, fresh local cockles and laverbread, smoked mackerel pot with crème fraîche and cucumber salsa, Welsh steak and ale pie with chips, beer-battered hake and chips, roast vegetable Thai curry with sticky rice and pak choi, traditional Welsh cawl, rib-eye or rump steak and chips, local salt-marsh lamb shank with mash and vegetable casserole, and puddings such as Penderyn whisky parfait and bread and butter pudding with mixed berries and crème fraîche; there's a separate vegetarian menu.
