“Great Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Once again a lovely Sunday lunch at one of our favourite pubs in Swansea. Meals always arrive piping hot and the portions are really good with a choice of roasts and also a vegetarian option. My mum who is in her 80s finds it hard to eat a whole meal but the staff suggested a child's portion for her without any hesitation. Value for money is excellent and I would definitely recommend this pub to anyone visiting the area. I would strongly suggest booking in advance as it gets very full on a Sunday.

“best independent pub in swansea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We have been to the westbourne on many occasions and have never ever had a bad meal. The portion s are excellent and the staff are always pleasant and obliging. We would definitely recommend this pub and indeed have recommended to family and work colleagues who now have become regular diners

“Best pub grub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Went for lunch today following a recommendation. Superb, a big step up from normal pub chain food. Everything is cooked fresh and it shows. The value for money is excellent, I had the sausage and mash while my wife had the breaded plaice. Both meals were tasty, generous and fresh. It is nice to see fresh mash not smash and the chips were also fresh not frozen. I will be back.

“Reasonably average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Went there to eat out with several retired work colleagues, something we do on a regular basis. The majority opted for Thai Green Curry. It did nothing for me and one of our party left the majority of the meal. Overall were slightly disappointed having heard that it was quite a good place to eat. Found the beer a little expensive.
