Featured Swansea Restaurants
1. Patricks With Rooms British, Modern restaurant in Swansea 638 Mumbles Rd - SA3
Well-established restaurant-with-rooms in the Mumbles of 27 years’ standing, overlooking Swansea Bay. Feedback was quite limited last year, but all reports are positive. You can eat either in the restaurant or the ‘Lounge Bar’.
2. Beach House British, Modern restaurant in Oxwich Oxwich Beach - SA3
For “a wonderful meal in a fantastic setting”, it’s worth a trip to this four-year-old venture: a stylish, airy dining room with vaulted ceiling, looking right onto the sand beach of Oxwich Bay. Chef Hywell Griffith and his team are on view in the open kitchen and offer a choice of à la carte and tasting menus (the latter five courses for £50 or eight for £80). In October 2019, it became one of six restaurants now blessed by Michelin in Wales. Top Tip – “it’s that rarest of destinations with wonderful cuisine that also offers an excellent kids’ menu and is a treat for that alone. Good for the foodie parent on holiday – no more pizza!”
3. Britannia Inn British, Modern restaurant in Langland Llanmadoc - SA3
2019 Review: A characterful, stone-walled interior and big garden with views (plus kids’ play area) set the scene at this attractive pub on the Gower Peninsula, which achieves all-round good scores for pub grub served in the bar and more ambitious cuisine in its restaurant.
4. Fairyhill British, Modern restaurant in Reynoldston
2018 Review: Owned by wedding specialists Oldwalls since November 2016, this small (but expanding) restaurant-with-rooms occupies a grade II manor house, beautifully set in a remote corner of the Gower peninsula. Feedback is limited, but very positive on its cuisine, which makes a feature of Welsh sourcing.
5. Hanson At The Chelsea Restaurant British, Modern restaurant in Swansea 17 St Marys St - SA1
2018 Review: Chef Andrew Hanson’s staple remains a superior option locally (“better than most in central Swansea”) thanks to its “good menu” and “proper dishes”, often revolving around fish and seafood. Upstairs is preferred to the basement.
