Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It's my favourite bar in South Wales. I can get there on a cycle path from my house. 8 miles about 45 mins. They often have verdant and vault city but their own beers are better than verdants ipa's and pales.

    Pizza is delicious too.

    Great view of the river tawe where it meets the marina.

    Opening hours are limited so check before you visit. But well worth a visit if you want genuinely good craft beer. There is also a fridge with cans and you can takeaway.

    The bar does have a younger vibe to it (it's not a center for real ale fans) I'm nearly 60 and I love the modern craft beers Rhys brews on site.

    If you're lucky enough to visit when there's a brew on you get a heavenly hop aroma wafting upstairs 😍

    Amazing service from Jess and Joe when we had a bottomless brunch. Jess was very attentive and replenished our cocktails constantly… would definitely recommend

    A beautiful traditional pub with a lovely fire and an incredibly friendly bar man behind the bar. They also serve an unbelievable Guinness. I will definitely be coming back here!!

    Me and my mates love going to this pub. It’s local for me, but they travel from other parts of Swansea to spend the evening here! Live music, great atmosphere and a good selection of drinks.

    If you’re visiting Mumbles then to go here is a must! A very friendly welcome was given to me from the off! Nothing Is too much trouble for Tracy and Keith. The live music on a Sunday is such a laugh and the atmosphere is brilliant. This pub is second to none. I’ll be back! X

    Swansea High St and Castle Square are losing their traditional pubs and cafes and are being replaced by trendy chain bars that serve the same style of food. From the outside I thought this might of been a hipster type craft beer bar that serves plenty of ''Hoppy IPA's'' but little traditional styles, I was wrong and after visiting a boring Wetherspoons wannabe Craft Union pub I headed back up the Hight Street and popped in. A few of the Beers are from Tomos Watkins who have a range of old style beers which included a proper stout which was thick and creamy and didn't have the tangy taste you get with Guinness(which is really a Porter). A menu sits above the bar with ABV and price. The staff member on duty was really friendly and made time to sit and chat with customers and done this without neglecting others.
    Only downside was the settees out front are very soft meaning you sink in and struggle to reach your drink on the stools

    I have been coming here for 1-2 years and it is hands down one of the best cocktail bars on wind street! With great deals and amazing cocktails, myself and everyone I know loves coming here. The staff are amazing and friendly, and the doormen are equally as friendly. I would recommend this to anyone as the drinks are amazing quality!

    From the moment you walk inside you can hear the live music touching your soul and mind. If you are looking to have your best weekend out on Wind Street, The Perch is the place to go. Bar staff very friendly and respectful, best cocktails ever ! Also, many thanks to the door staff for 0 incidents ! I will definitely recommend it to all my friends and family.

    Really enjoyed our visit to Noah’s Ark on Thursday 3rd June. I had a beer and my wife had a glass of wine. Fascinating collection of items on display.
    Called again on Sunday 13th June. My wife had a glass of Chardonnay and I had a pint of Old Speckled Hen. We were sitting inside next to a wide-open window and it was fascinating watching people passing and other customers. Some customers were ordering from the menu and the food was delivered from the neighbouring Vietnamese restaurant. All looked very tasty and we must try on our next visit.
