Popped in for a drink and wasn’t disappointed. The pub was a true local with a good selection of beers and the locally brewed beer ‘The Pilot’ was well tasty. Views over looking the sea front great too for watching the world pass by.

Beautiful little pub, deserving of it's fantastic reputation. Beautiful views across the bay and into Swansea. Great selection of beers on tap, well worth a visit and as another reviewer of this pub has stated 'do not walk past this pub'.

In my seventy odd years I have had many a pint, but none better than and most much inferior to Pilot Gold, an absolutely wonderful pint. The Pilot is a proper pub, charming and friendly. A great place.

A wonderful choice of beer and cider with a couple of interesting lagers. They also serve a good coffee and tea. Great atmosphere and a good welcome from behind the bar.

Had 3 lovely evenings here. With views over Swansea Bay& the quiet murmur of other conversations around you rather than piped music, this is a cosy place to try out a good variety of ales. Mix of locals and visitors fill the pub. Some of...More

Nice friendly pub with its own Micro brewery. Two of my favourites are the wrecker(a dark beer) and pilots gold (a amber beer). Dog friendly (but not slowed in after 9 Friday and Saturday (due to being packed out better for the dogs )
