Perfect for all occasions

Conveniently situated less than two miles from the M4 (Junction 38), The Twelve Knights is a warm and welcoming pub with a traditional feel. As well as a large bar and restaurant, facilities include two meeting rooms, one of which is a ground floor room catering for up to 50 guests and can also act as a separate restaurant.

Our menu offers a great selection of grills and pub classics which go perfectly with our quality cask ales and fines wines, ideal to enjoy after a long day exploring the many local attractions.

We like to think we’re best place to watch sport in the area. We show live games throughout the week, a great opportunity to catch up with friends.

Get involved

We’re a friendly bunch and are proud of our vibrant atmosphere.  Every Friday and Saturday night we have live entertainment in the bar and host an infamous quiz every Sunday night too!

Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for all our latest events. 

Lots to explore locally

With Neath and Port Talbot on our doorstop, there are a range of local attractions for your to explore. 

A few of our favourites include:

Margam Country Park – thousand acres of glorious parklands, perfect for a family day out.  Enjoy a ride on the narrow gauge railway, explore the adventure playground or look out for the best deer herd in Wales.  And for the grown ups, check out the impressive Victorian Mansion House and 18th Century Orangery.

Aberavon beach – a 3 mile stretch of dansy beach, popular with surfers and families.  Facilities include a skateboard park and amphi-theatre.

Afan Forest Park – part of the largest urban forest in Europe, it stretches over 64 square kilometres!  A very popular destination for walking and cycling, boasting five world class mountain biking trails.

Go Ape – a fun tree top adventure park.  Enjoy some stunning landscapes as you swing through tress and fly down zip wires!

McArthur Glen Design Outlet – If you enjoy a spot of shopping, McArthur Glen Designer Outlet is only a short drive away in Bridgend.

With plenty of other sporting, entertainment and parks on our doorstep, just ask for some assistance from our staff who will happily advise how to make the most of your time with us.
