Atmosphere is nice in there with a very cosy feel, in the summer you can sit outside on the colourful chairs and it's absolutely lovely but the inside feels a little cramped sometimes so I don't recommend for large groups.

Lovely place to share a coffee or lunch. Has recently been refurbished and opened up, with plenty of comfy chairs. The Christmas paté had run out, so had to make do with the standard one, but it was delicious.

Love it. Can sit there all lunch time and into the afternoon reading the paper, a few Peronis, smoked salmon and cream cheese bagels, chat with Nicki, always made welcome when we come and visit our daughter and stay in the Mumbles. Very civilised.

Sat in the sun, drinking my San Miguel, eating my fish and chips, great sun spot for Mumbles.Left the kids running round the castle, which is literally round the corner, while we soaked up the sun & beer. Felt like I was on holiday.
