Enjoy a warm welcome

This traditional pub is located in the residential area of Killay Swansea, just on the edge of the stunning Gower and only a few miles from the City Centre. There is a real, strong community in Killay and our pub is the hub for this fantastic community. When you step inside there is a warming ambience, we have two coal fires that are lit throughout the winter. There is something quite special about sitting around a roaring fire with a perfectly poured pint of Dark and a chocolate cake on a Sunday evening! When we are lucky enough to see the sun shine, we have a fantastic beer garden that catches the sun from every angle. When the sun shines you know where to come to enjoy a delicious meal and few beers in the sun.

We are also proud to offer a fantastic range of function and event packages to cater for all occasions. From formal, three course sit-down meals with arrival drinks, to an evening buffet with accompanying entertainment, we would love you to see what we have to offer.

For your no-obligation appointment with our special events coordinator, contact us on 01792 299469 or email
