We were very excited to visit the Beach House again after it reopened post lockdown. We have dined here about 18 months ago and had the 5 course tasting menu which was excellent. This time we went for the 8 course tasting menu. It didn't disappoint.
We were given a lovely table for 4 next to a window. It was high tide and it was lovely to look out over Oxwich Bay. Tables in the restaurant have always been well spaced out and with additional Perspex screens social distancing and covid safety was no issue at all.
All 8 courses on the tasting menu were delicious and different. It's great to see the chef is still honouring local produce where possible and the Oxwich Bay lobster was especially good. It was funny to think that we were looking out over the same bay in which the lobster was caught. The roe deer was the most tender I have ever tasted - perfectly cooked. Clearly a great deal of attention has gone into the preparation and delivery of this menu.
If I was going to be very picky I would say that time time between courses was a little long at times but some customers might prefer this. Also the sommelier was a little over-zealous in topping up our wine, which can come across as them just wanting to sell you another bottle. But again, maybe some people always like a constant amount of wine in their glass at any time. However, the staff were working hard and were friendly and welcoming.
I sincerely hope Swansea will continue to support a top restaurant like this - in my opinion, the prices are fair for the quality of food and experience.
