Had a family meal here, plenty of choice on the menu, food was appertizing, reasonably priced, large portion sizes. I had the rack of ribs, meat was so tender it fell off the bone, i couldn't finish it as there was so much.
Restaurant was comfy and clean.
Service was friendly, accommodating, quick and efficient.
Overall we had a good meal and would recommend this establishment for family meals.

I visit this restaurant on a very regular basis. The staff are always pleasant, friendly and always more than helpful. I and some of my family have food intolerances and they take particular care to check anything which I ask because they understand the importance of food intolerances, They have the best range of gluten and dairy free meals I have ever found in any restaurant and I have never had cause to complain about the quality of the meals.
When they were closed during the COVID pandemic, they delivered meals locally and the meals were always hot. I cannot praise the meals and staff highly enough.

Thoroughly recommend this place for food. Family of 15 of us went for a big celebration dinner while staying in Trecco for week. The staff couldn't do enough for us, food was very reasonably priced and delicious. We went with varied food tastes and we all really enjoyed it!!

It’s been years since we went to this pub but thought we’d give it go for lunch. We pre booked , just as well as it was busy. We arrived & were seated quickly - the table was not what we’d call clean ( it was slightly tacky with salt on one part) but as it was busy & we were hungry we overlooked this. We ordered cod & chips for us both - loads of batter but little fish itself, & the oil had gone through the chips. We did try a dessert but these were not great. Would we go back - NO. One positive was the staff were polite & courteous.

Lovely restaurant and importantly a restaurant that stays open 7 days a week, where some places in porthcawl don't serve food on certain times like Sunday evenings. This restaurant does but you will need to book as it is very popular.
We did not eat the night we visited but we were made welcome and the good we did see being brought out looked sensational
The staff and especially the owner were all so friendly and it was very COVID secure with temperature checks etc before you go in
We will definitely book and go back next time we are in porthcawl
